This was hands down the best activity on our cruise from Brisbane. A beautiful way to cool down while enjoying the pristine fresh water of the rainforest. The guides were super friendly and very insightful and informative about the region, the rainforest, the native flora and fauna as well as the cultural indigenous heritage tied to the location. If I were back up that way, I'd do this again.

The river drift snorkeling was amazing 😍 The lesson about the aborigenies was good, but much shorter than we expected. The walk in the rain forrest was a bit quick, but so cool and interesting and the swimming in between was very refreshing and nice. The whole day was a very memorable experience with the coolest quide😀

Booked as a last minute “lets just do something” thing to do and it did not disappoint. The rainforest is incredibly beautiful and rafting though it on the river is such a fun activity. Vincent picked us up and looked after us for our tour. Very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the tour, answering questions and helping us to get the most out of the experience. Would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

The Mossman Gorge Adventure Day with River Drift Snorkelling tour was fabulous. Artemisa was the best tour guide: her knowledge, communication, and energy made our day an unforgettable experience.

An unforgettable experience in a magical setting, led by excellent guides. Artemis and Leo made it great fun and were very generous with their knowledge and experience of the forest and the river. 5* for everything, even the weather!

We had a wonderful time. It’s hard to find something that everyone enjoys (10, 15, 16, 53 year olds). It was informative, fun and beautiful scenery. Guides were friendly, clear with direction and knew their stuff. Definitely recommend and would do it again.

Epic trip! Vincent and Steph were awesome tour guides, full of information and stories! Our time on the river was absolutely stunning, the river snorkelling and drifting were the days highlight. Then our afternoon in the rainforest was full of knowledge & laughs. Thanks for a great day team! 1000% recommend!

Wow! We spent the day with Artemis snorkelling and drifting down the river, then hiking through the rainforest in the afternoon. Artemis' passion and knowledge of the rainforest is incredible, and she is without a doubt the best tour guide we've had the pleasure of meeting in our time travelling QLD. Would absolutely recommend the full day tour to anyone.

Back Country Bliss River Drift Snorkelling tour is one of the best tours I have ever done. Such a unique experience being surrounded by the magnificent rain forest (the world’s oldest!) in crystal-clear waters with tiny turtles. It was so peaceful and serene. The rafting part was heaps of fun to drifting down the tiny rapids was awesome. All the guides were exceptional, very knowledgeable and extremely helpful and looked after all the participants really well. Highly recommend this tour.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the Adventure Day. Our guide, Corry, was knowledgeable, informative and kind. He made sure the whole group had an enjoyable time, and was safe. He was particularly good with our 9 year old boys at the river and really helped them to enjoy the experience. Would definitely recommend.

We had the most amazing day today! Even though the weather was overcast, Vincent and Leota shared some great info about the rainforest, their culture and the gorgeous river. Snorkeling and floating down the river was fun, relaxing and something we will never forget. Mel and Luke (Ralph) xx

Amazing morning drifting with Kate and Erica! We had a lovely stroll through the rainforest and then snorkelled down the river even hitting some very small rapids. We ended the session with a drift down the ‘cathedral’, our favourite bit. An unforgettable experience and one we will be talking about for a very long time.

Floating Through a Cathedral of Trees I did a float on the Mossman and a tour of the gorge in October 2023 and it was beyond anything I had hoped for (and I had some pretty high expectations). Trent and Rene were AMAZING guides, and their love for and appreciation of the rainforest was evident from the moment we met. From horticulture to biology to just moments of quiet bordering on a near-spiritual experience, these two were exemplary guides whom I cannot laud enough. My thanks to them for a beautiful experience, one which I will carry with me for the rest of my days. In addition, Joe from Oasis Transport who drove me up to Cairns was fantastic. He went above and beyond to explain the history of the Tropical North, taking detours for scenic overlooks and telling stories rich with local color. Oh, and we did that all and were still ahead of schedule! Such a phenomenal experience. Make sure to go today!

We had such a lovely time on our Daintree raft tour. Corey was a lovely tour guide! We really appreciate the comfort and fun he brought us in the van and during the tour. He was very supportive of me who is not a confident swimmer, and catered to all of us well. Thank you for a great and memorable experience! 🙂

Above and beyond what I expected The tour was a mix of interesting nature discovery in the forest and exploring the river. Great for our family including an 11 year old and 13 year old. It’s cold but the wetsuits make it ok as soon as you get in. The tour guide was enthusiastic and entertaining which is needed when you are trying to convince some sceptical people to jump in a cold river. Just be warned though … take off any rings. I lost my wedding ring half down a small set of rapids. That ring hardly came off my finger without a struggle but the combination of cold water and friction against rocks pulled that ring right off my finger. Wasn’t very happy at all at the end of the tour about losing my ring until 3 weeks later when the tour operator found it with a metal detector and sent it back to me. Completely unexpected and well done by them. Above and beyond what I expected.

Absolutely amazing! I had a blast floating the river, exploring the gorge, learning about the culture of the KuKu Yalangi people who have long occupied the Daintree. I felt immensely enriched, enjoyed my time in a true ecological gem, and had SO MUCH FUN!

River Drift Snorkelling This was the best experience, a must do, great guides, easy, not stressful.
Snorkelling, drifting on rafts, all under the canopy of the Daintree Rain Forest.

What an incredible experience.
Our guide Stu was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
The insight into Aboriginal ways of the rainforest was fascinating.
The river slide and snorkeling was amazing.
I would highly recommend doing the half day trip.
Get wet, get involved, get into the rainforest.
Thank you!

Amazing experience! We had the best time with Stu as our guide. Great knowledge of the area, the river & teaching us how to snorkel for the first time. We could not have had a better guide. Each part of the river we visited was a completely different experience. Would do this activity over and over again!

Amazing! Highly recommended This was such an amazing experience and incredible way to see the rain forest and have a swim. The guides were fabulous and so helpful and informative! we were lucky to have had some rain and got a little bit of an extra section of the river in which can’t be accessed during dryer times. An absolute must do!

This was an incredible experience and one of the best adventures we did on our trip! The guides were great, the river was CRYSTAL clear, and we got to snorkel our way down through a stunning ancient rainforest looking at hundreds of fish and searching for turtles. The views above water were like something out of the lost world. Thick rainforest making you feel like you’re in a movie set! Brilliant! We will definitely do this tour again next time we visit!

What a great way to enjoy the river and rainforest. I loved the snorkeling, finding numerous fresh water fish varieties and the rafting was super fun. Exciting in the fast flow sections and relaxing in other parts letting you relax and take in the beauty of the river and rainforest.
