About the Operator

Bruce Belcher and his family are celebrating over 32 years on the Daintree River. As a small family Daintree river tours business they have a great lifestyle with their own private boutique facility on the riverbank in a Conservation Park.

Bruce’s involvement in tourism started from humble beginnings as a trainee tour guide, learning the knack of how to spot wildlife – so 40,000 trips later he have an eagle eye for spotting wildlife!

His obsession with the river and with providing Daintree tours comes from his childhood and growing up with the aboriginal people on Mornington Island, in the Gulf of Carpentaria, where he learned a lot.

Their son Griffith was born in Mossman which is just a short distance from the Daintree River. He has grown up at their home on the banks of the Daintree river and life here is second nature to him.

Having achieved his trade as a diesel mechanic, he has taken on the responsibilities of maintaining machinery.
