Let us introduce you!

The eco conscious legends from Back Country Bliss will sweep you away on their floaties along tranquil rivers through the Daintree Rain Forest. Choose from two amazing experiences!

Children Floating In The Rainforest

River Drift Snorkeling

It’s swimming, snorkelling, floating and a rainforest walk. All combined into the best rainforest experiences in the region!

Step into the cool, crystal-clear water and drift with the current as you explore life under the water’s surface. Watch fish dart in and around the river stones and keep your eyes out for the occasional turtle. You’re in control… Navigate down a flowing rainforest river with your sturdy river sled. The perfect way to stay cool in the hot tropics and a great introduction to snorkeling before heading out to the reef.

Our experience can be both fast paced and slow, depending on how much water is in the river. If you’re not a confident swimmer or have low mobility and or fitness this activity may not be suitable.
