Cape Tribulation Horse rides have the distinction of being the longest tour operator in Cape Tribulation.
As horses were our start up business and will continue, our belief is to go to the electric age thus bringing the electric quad bikes and polaris UTV buggies to the Daintree.
The horse riding tour caters for all types of riders and levels, though for the extreme horse rider be advised this is a trail ride with the appropriate insurances in place and an establishment that must conform to the rules laid out.
More experienced riders can obviously go faster and get to canter their horse.
The more beginner may want to walk or try a little trot.
Generally we like to get horse’s and customers in the ocean , and in quite a few instances we have been asked about crocodile and stinger concerns, so to clear up any concerns, here is a brief summary.
Firstly staff are not to take horse’s into the ocean unless they have clear visibility in the water.
Secondly there is protection from a reef that shelters us from the elements of nature, making it quite safe to enter ocean on horse back.
Starting from the stable with our friendly guide’s customers will wind their way through the oldest rain forest in the world and be pleasantly surprised by the beauty of Myall beach.
Before you enter the ocean we take the opportunity to get some great photos of customers in this relaxed environment.
We encourage riders to get the most of the 2 hour experience as it encompasses both rainforest, beach and open paddock, with a Jurassic park feel to the experience.
All equipment is supplied; Approved helmets, rain jackets, saddle bags with water bottle holders, dry bags for equipment, and a selection of rubber shoes.
All equipment is to Australian government codes of standard.
Prices: $110.00 per adult, $70.00 per child ages 14 down to 5 years old.

UTV night adventure
Capturing the rainforest at night is such an amazing experience, with the aid of these electric buggies we are able to not disrupt the inhabitants of the rainforest.
Getting quite deep in the rainforest, and the word magical springs to mind when we shut out the light’s and under your feet the forest comes alive.
Glow in the dark foliage appears and fireflies light up the night .
As we take a walk into the night each person has night vision goggles making it much less stressful on animals that are encountered along the way, shutting out the lights and going to night vision is less disruptive for their nocturnal activities.
Finished off with a free aussie dinner catered by our local beach house resort kitchen and refreshments as you take the time to relax and enjoy your nights adventure .
