What you'll do
We travel 15 minutes north of Port Douglas to the Mossman River. On arrival, we all get dressed into some very fashionable wetsuits and dive boots; This is mostly to keep us warm in the cool water. We then head into the rainforest and explore the rivers and banks for fish, turtle and even platypus! The experience is a mixture of swimming, snorkelling, floating on river sled's, and simply hanging out in the most beautiful section of the Daintree Rainforest! We spend about 2 hours in the river/rainforest, with the total time from pickup to drop off being 3.5 hours. We think this is the ultimate rainforest experience!
I believe the ultimate way to experience the rainforest, is by exploring the freshwater rivers; especially using our red river sleds! That's why this adventure is not to be missed! I've been a professional tour guide for 10 years now; and living and working in the tropical rainforests of North QLD, for 5 years now. This place is incredible! My company Back Country Bliss Adventures, is proud to host one of the top experiences out of Port Douglas. I love sharing our hidden spots with visitors and I'm always happy to help with advice on reef trips and other activities in the region as well. If you're not drifting through the rainforest with myself, you'll be guided by Will, Glen, Alicia or Stuart; all well-travelled locals with backgrounds in nature and hosting!
