Whitsunday Crocodile Safari is a family owned, professionally operated, fully-guided and safe day-trip. Steve and Jacqui Watson both work full time in hands-on roles in the business, to ensure guests enjoy excellent customer service and a memorable nature experience.


Proserpine River Eco Tours was originally conceived in 1999.

It took more than two years to gain the necessary approvals and permits to commence the tour. Operating equipment was sourced, constructed and renovated, and the first tour was conducted on 9 December 2000.


Whitsunday Crocodile Safari has now created an opportunity to present Queensland's natural environment to Australia and the world and we promote an identity that is uniquely Australian and quintessentially Queensland.


We are strong believers in providing a high quality product, and also in the future of the Whitsundays as one of the world's premier tourist destinations.

We have continually developed and improved the tour over time, and this has been successfully achieved through our experiences, combined with the all important feedback from our guests.

This in turn led to the establishment of the Whitsunday Crocodile Safari, now a full day excursion, which started on 1 April 2003. Customer response to this format has been overwhelming and we continue, as always, to fine-tune and enhance our product.


Steve Watson (Owner)


As Tour Owner & Manager, Steve Watson has a hands-on role to ensure his guests go home with some wonderful nature experiences and a feeling that they have received value for money.

Steve says: "We care about people and the experiences that they seek out in Australia. Most of our guests are a long way from home and for our international visitors, maybe it is the only time they will visit Australia. So we go to great lengths to make sure that our tour exceeds everyone's expectations, ensuring that they go home with a feeling of satisfaction. We also believe that the quality of our tour will encourage our guests to recommend us to friends who intend to visit the Whitsunday Coast".
