Cape Trib Adventure Bus – Choose Your Adventure

From $100 each

Catch the Cape Trib Adventure Bus for an adventure-filled day in the Daintree Rainforest.

Tour Details

Spend the day entirely at your own leisure, or add one or two of our tour options – it’s your choice, do as much or as little as you like.

After we pick you up from your Port Douglas accommodation in our comfortable, air-conditioned 12 seater bus, we head north towards the rainforest.

Passing through sugar cane fields and the sugar town of Mossman, we arrive at the Daintree River.

An old fashioned cable car ferry will carry us across and straight into the lush greenness of the forest.

Winding our way over the mountain range while keeping an eye out for cassowaries, we arrive at Cape Trib at around 10am.

We highly recommend you book at least one tour.

Not only are they fun, they will make you appreciate the unique environment so much more.

Start your day in Cape Tribulation with a tour then afterwards you can enjoy lunch at any of the cafes or restaurants in town.

And, because we do all the driving, you can even treat yourself to a cold beer or a glass of wine.

In the afternoon you can either explore this paradise on your own, or choose another activity to make your day complete.

We provide you with a map and directions to find beautiful tropical beaches, walks, a fresh water swimming hole and places to eat and drink.

We also make sure you are in the right place, at the right time for all tours.

Departure time from Cape Trib is at 4.30 pm so you will be back in Port Douglas before dinner.

In short: We pick you up and chauffeur you around. You explore, experience and adventure. When we drive you back to Port Douglas at the end of the day, you sit back, relax and watch the Daintree scenery go by.
