Our Crew

Riverbend Tours is a locally owned family business in Cooktown.

Nick, your skipper and guide has worked in marine tourism along Australia’s East Coast and Northern Territory for over twenty years. From remote Cape York resorts, care taking remote coastal islands, skippering Great Barrier Reef dive boats and most recently as a tour guide at Nitmiluk National Park on Katherine Gorge; Nick’s passion for remote marine environments is self evident.

Nick has been based in Cooktown since 2010, married to wife Krissy and has three young boys, Max, Jessie and Woody. In early 2014 Nautilus was acquired from Mossman and extensively refitted and took to the water in July 2015.

Nothing pretentious here. This lovely cruise at sunset is relaxing, informative and perfectly pitched by Nick.
