River Drift Snorkelling Tour Fact

An amazing eco-immersion adventure that’s different every time!

It’s swimming, snorkelling, floating and a rainforest walk. All combined into the best rainforest experiences in the region!
Step into the cool, crystal-clear water and drift with the current as you explore life under the water’s surface.
Watch fish dart in and around the river stones and keep your eyes out for the occasional turtle.
You’re in control… Navigate down a flowing rainforest river with your sturdy river sled.
The perfect way to stay cool in the hot tropics and a great introduction to snorkelling before heading out to the reef.
Our experience can be both fast paced and slow, depending on how much water is in the river. If you’re not a confident swimmer, or have low mobility and or fitness this activity may not be suitable. More information can be found here

What can I see

As you explore one of the cleanest rivers in Australia, keep an eye out for some of the friendly inhabitants

Over 30 species of fish
Water Dragons
Colourful birds
Electric blue butterflies
Elusive platypus!

If you’ve never snorkelled before, don’t worry! Our experienced guides will be there to help you explore the underwater environment. They’ll provide guidance and support, ensuring you’re comfortable with the equipment and techniques before you start.

However, if you decide that snorkelling isn’t for you, that’s perfectly fine too. The rainforest above the water is equally impressive and there’s plenty to see and enjoy while others are snorkelling. Our tour is about experiencing the beauty of the river environment, both above and below the water, in a way that suits you best.

Remember, your comfort and enjoyment are our top priorities. Whether you’re snorkelling or simply soaking in the sights of the rainforest, we’re here to ensure you have a memorable experience.

    You understand that this activity requires physical exertion and it is your responsibility to make sure you’re healthy enough to participate.
    Any serious medical condition or history may disallow you from participating in the tour.
  • Can I be a spectator?
    Unfortunately not.  Due to the tour starting and finishing in different locations, there are no suitable areas to sit and watch.
  • Do we still run the tour if it is raining?
    Generally yes! However, it depends on how much rain and also where the rain is falling. 1-5mm of rain will hardly wet the ground in the tropics, so please don’t worry if this is the forecast. If you have any concerns, please contact us for an update on the river conditions, as heavy rain can influence the safety and overall enjoyment of this tour. As this tour is weather dependent, it may be cancelled in conditions of heavy rainfall or extreme weather. If this occurs, an alternative date will be offered, or you will be refunded in full.
  • What about crocodiles?
    We don’t swim with crocs! You should always be Croc-wise in Croc country; that is why you can rest assured that our tour operates in a very safe, Croc-Free stretch of water. Crocodiles use the water, sun and shade to maintain their preferred body temperature of 30–33°C. Where we swim is too clear, too cold at 16-22°C, and too shaded for crocodiles. The cool water is one reason we provide you with a very fashionable wetsuit to use during your tour. The best way to see crocodiles in the wild, is with Bruce Belcher’s wildlife cruises on the Daintree River (not the same river)
  • What to bring?
    Swimmers to wear under your wetsuit
    There are no change rooms at the river, so please wear your swimmers underneath your clothes
    Towel & comfortable footwear
