A MUST DO in the Whitsundays !
Whitsunday Crocodile Safari, operated by Proserpine River Eco Tours, is a full day nature exploration into the estuaries and wetlands of the Whitsundays. Operating 7 days a week the Safari's aim is to provide a fully guided and safe, Australian nature experience that encompasses the unique tropical environment which is home to many species of native birds, mammals, reptiles and marine animals, including up to 150 estuarine crocodiles.
Proserpine River Eco Tours holds advanced Eco certification with the Eco tourism Australia, and has been operating since 2000. The Safari departs from Airlie Beach in the morning and travels to Glen Isla, which is a district of Proserpine, returning in the late afternoon. Our small group numbers (maximum 31) ensure personal contact with our experienced guides. The land we travel through is privately owned, and we are the only commercial tourism operator on the Proserpine River. The sound of nature is our background noise and you will feel like you are miles away from civilization, deep in the Australian bush. Cruise quietly along the Proserpine River and experience the mangrove habitat of many species of flora and fauna, including the estuarine Saltwater crocodile. Enjoy a bushman s billy tea and damper on your return.

About the Tour
A calm-water cruise, all year round, on the Proserpine River with crocodile watching. The Proserpine River is home to the highest density of saltwater (estuarine) crocodile per kilometre in Queensland, as well as many other residents of the mangrove habitat.
An open air, elevated wagon train tour through wetlands, natural waterholes, pastures and melaleuca forest which are home to a variety of birdlife, native mammals, and reptiles.The tour is established for over 14 years, we are a Green Travel Leader, holding advanced eco certification with Ecotourism Australia for over 10 years.
We operate on privately owned land, we are the only commercial tourism operator on the Proserpine River.
Crocodile sightings are not guaranteed because we operate in the crocodile's natural habitat, not in a fauna park or farm. But we offer the best chance of seeing crocodiles in the wild in Queensland, because we run our cruise at the lowest point of the tide each day, which provides the best opportunity to spot crocodiles as they bask on the exposed river bank
