Within an ancient rainforest setting, step into the cool, crystal-clear waters of the Mossman River and drift on a personal floatation device downstream and discover life beneath the surface. Watch fish dart in and around the river stones and keep your eyes out for the occasional turtle. This family-friendly tour is the perfect way to stay cool in the hot tropics and is a great introduction to snorkelling before heading out on the reef. Small children (and adults) can journey down the river on large river sleds. The River Drift Snorkelling Tour is operated by Back Country Bliss and departs from Port Douglas, a 45-minute drive from the Daintree Ecolodge.
