Very nice day out, pick up from the hotel, nice guys to go with

Nice and friendly tour guide, fun activity for the whole family, 1 hour from cairns city, around 90 minutes in the water, safe and fun. Will do again. Remember to bring a big towel to get change in, as there's no change room there. Half day tour nice and smooth.

This is a good fun activity for the family with young kids

I highly recommend this activity to the family with younger kids. This was our alternative option for water activity as my younger boy has not reached the minimum age requirement for water rafting. But we all had great fun and spent good around 2 hours on the river. There is levy charge of $15 per person and shoe rental is also available if needed. Bring some cash with you so you can avoid being charged for CC surcharge.

The half-day river tubing experience was fantastic!!!!

We were looking for a family-friendly water experience and came across this. Our youngest is five years of age so this was perfect! It was so relaxing and exciting at the same time. The river was absolutely beautiful, enjoyed the nature. Most importantly the staff were super helpful with the experience. Taught all of us how to paddle along the river and made sure we were safe. Highly recommend!
