We travel 15 minutes north of Port Douglas to the Mossman River. On arrival, we all get dressed into some very fashionable wetsuits and dive boots; This is mostly to keep us warm in the cool water. We then head into the rainforest and explore the rivers and banks for fish, turtle and even platypus!
The experience is a mixture of swimming, snorkelling, floating on river sled's, and simply hanging out in the most beautiful section of the Daintree Rainforest!
We spend about 2 hours in the river/rainforest, with the total time from pickup to drop off being 3.5 hours.
We think this is the ultimate rainforest experience!
Other things to note
Suitable for all ages and swimming abilities when the river is calm and relaxing. With faster, more exciting conditions, ideal for strong swimmers.
- Not suitable for guests with limited mobility
- Must be able to walk over uneven surfaces
- You will need to climb over tree roots to exit the river

I believe the ultimate way to experience the rainforest, is by exploring the freshwater rivers; especially using our red river sleds! That's why this adventure is not to be missed!
I've been a professional tour guide for 10 years now; and living and working in the tropical rainforests of North QLD, for 5 years now. This place is incredible!
My company Back Country Bliss Adventures, is proud to host one of the top experiences out of Port Douglas.
I love sharing our hidden spots with visitors and I'm always happy to help with advice on reef trips and other activities in the region as well.

If you're not drifting through the rainforest with myself, you'll be guided by Will, Glen, Artemis, Wayne or Rohan; all well-travelled locals with backgrounds in nature and hosting!

It was an amazing experience! The location was nothing like I have experienced before! The crew also made sure our safety and comfort! Artemis , who picked us up has high energy! Our guide was very inlove with nature and it radiates to how he shared and described the spot with us! I just felt it was a bit short. I would have wanted to stay longer.
