Will there be toilet stops along the way?
Yes, we stop approximately every 35 minutes and there will be toilets available. On the TOUR’A’, The longest part of the journey is on our return from The Daintree Ice Cream Company back to Port Douglas, which takes approximately one hour twenty minutes, depending on ferry queues. Please use this last stop if you need to.
On the TOUR’B’ Bloomfield Falls tour, there is approximately two and a half hours of off road driving and no toilets along the way. Please consider this before booking this tour.
My child is under eight can he /she join the tour?
Our tours are designed for all age groups, however if your child is under the age of eight you will require a private charter. Due to Queensland Transport Department regulations a child aged 7 and under requires a child restraint seat if travelling in a smaller vehicle. As we come under those guidelines, we cannot place a child/baby seat with a mixed group.
Do you ever cancel?
We travel 7 days a week and only cancel if we receive notification that the National Parks are closed, the Daintree River may be in flood, a breakdown with the Daintree ferry, there are road closures or trees down due to cyclonic winds or a cyclone. If any of these should occur we contact each guest as soon as possible , you will be given the choice to either re schedule or a refund. The decision will be made by taking into consideration your safety, as well as any impending weather forecasts. If we cancel, you will not be charged however please don’t assume that you’re not going because it’s raining or because you feel that the weather is unacceptable, as you will be charged if the tour is running.
Most of our cancellation by guests are due to guests not wishing to travel because it’s raining, please remember you have booked a RAINforest tour.
Am I likely to see wildlife?
Our tours are conducted in a natural environment, therefore wildlife is never guaranteed. You are likely to see butterflies, boyd’s forest dragons, insects, birds, bats, musky rat kangaroo, water dragons, lizards, platypus, snakes, cassowaries, crocodiles or even a tree kangaroo. Unfortunately though they are not always around. There are many factors that contribute to wildlife sighting. Weather, tides and rainforest food plays a large role. Our wildlife is generally shy, so small group tours in natural environments and private areas are always best.
