“Can not recommend Brad and hinchinbrook island cruises enough. Brad has great knowledge of the island including water sources, history and crocodiles. He genuinely cares for your wellbeing and wants to ensure everyone has a fun and safe hike. We had some changes with our group and schedule leading up to the trip, Brad was very accommodating and made adjustment with no fuss. Our group was 5 women, with most being inexperienced hikers, he put our minds at ease. Brad’s the type of guy youre excited to see at end, to share your storys with and will get home safely”

“I recently traveled with Brad to and from Hinchinbrook lsland, he was on time, polite and friendly and provided a heap of great information about the trail as he was a member of Qld parks and wildlife service, I was able to hire an IRB for safety from him as well.”

“On return to Cardwell l lost one of my walking poles, I let Brad know and found it and I was able to pick it up a few days later. Really appreciated his help. If I go to Hinchinbrook again I would definitely be going with him. Thanks Brad”

Dean Maher

“Would really recommend using Brad’s services for Hinchinbrook Island or anything else in the region. His great sense of humour put us at ease before our hike and he has a wealth of knowledge about the area.”

“Pick ups were on time, advice was great, and a refreshing bevy was great after our hike. Look forward to using his service again!”

Ryan McKernan

Brad was an absolute legend and briefed us fully on safety of the trail before dropping us off to do the Hinchinbrook trail. He was early to pick us up which meant no waiting, and lots of highlights on the return journey including two crocodiles. Can’t recommend Brad highly enough.

Elle Wolf

“Fantastic service. I’ve rarely come across a tour operator that’s more professional, honest, knowledgeable and hospitable.  He’s been a true gentleman to deal with during our booking, during the ride over to the island and on the way back.”

“As we had some heavy rain in the last night, being the caring person he is, without any communication (since there is no service), he assumed we’d head back early and he waited for us an hour before our scheduled departure time. I can’t recommend him enough.”
