We will not be running our 10:30AM wildlife tours until the 16th of April 2021 due to the warmer weather, Making it very hard to spot Crocodiles & other wildlife in the day time. So we run our 5:30pm sunset tour on Thursday & Saturday for more information about our sunset/wildlife cruises please visit our sunset tour page by clicking below.


Come on board Snapping Tours and experience the world heritage listed wet tropics. Our tours provide you with an opportunity to learn more about the history and biodiversity of the Innisfail area, together with spotting an abundance of wildlife that call the Johnstone River home. Wildlife you will spot include salt water crocodiles, many bird species and turtles.

Our tour guides will take you on a two hour journey around the Johnstone River, so you can experience the beautiful scenery and take a closer look at life above and beneath the waters of the Johnstone River. We have a very keen eye for spotting crocodiles in their natural habitat. They will either be lurking beneath the waters or sunning themselves on the sandbanks. Either way, it is a spectacular sight!

During the tours, our tour guides will also check crab pots in the hope of seeing wild caught mud crabs, as well as explaining their general features and their habitat. Complementary drinks and light snacks are available on board. Don’t forget to bring a hat, sunscreen, a camera and big smiles!

This unique cruising experience on the tranquil waters of the Johnstone River awaits you! Book a tour today!
