Snapping tours was awesome! Highlight of our trip to the Atherton tablelands!! The local father and son guides know the area and river like the back of their hands, and are full of interesting knowledge and history! Great tour for the affordable price! Saw crocs, lizards, frogs, birds and had an awesome time out on the water. So friendly warm and welcoming. Highly recommend!

Vince and Brenton, what can I say? Thank you so much for giving me the most fantastic end to my time in Innisfail!! The twilight tour was incredible as we got to take in the sights of the river in daylight, the truly stunning sunset, and at night. I would have paid just for that! Vince and Brenton make a wonderful father-son team, which was so much lovelier to see than some big faceless corporation! You can tell they are both so passionate about what they do. Their excitement for the river and the wildlife that call it home, is contagious, as you find yourself glued to your binoculars (provided) eager to see what's lurking beneath the water! Their knowledge stretches far beyond Crocodiles, as we were treated to a fascinating history of the river, native animals and trees to the area, and the local town. I was incredibly impressed by their ability to spot the tiniest cute baby crocodiles from a distance, and in the dark!..So rest assured, if there are crocodiles in the area, Vince and Brenton will spot them for you! We got to see both large and tiny baby crocs in the water!!! Finally it was a perfect touch, being able to sit back and relax between sightings with a complimentary wine/beer/soft drink, with cheese and crackers. WHAT A PERFECT SUNDAY! I happily recommend Snapping Tours, to anyone in Innisfail/Cairns/Nearby, looking for a fun day out!
