Full description
Jump on board a half-day Jumping Croc Cruise on the Adelaide River. Get up close and personal to some of nature's most aggressive and dangerous wildlife located in the naturally occurring waterways of the Northern Territory. Depart the city and journey about 60km southeast towards the Marrakai wetlands. Explore the home of an apex predator, the crocodile and 117 different species of reptiles, and 280 different types of birds. Travel aboard the only aboriginally owned cruise operator, where profits go back into supporting the traditional owners of the surrounding area. Discover the biggest reptile in the world and oldest creature to walk the planet since dinosaurs, these prehistoric beasts growing up to 6 meters in length (the size of a small bus) and can weigh up to 1000kg. Be in the hands of a highly trained crew so that you experience a safe interaction with the crocodiles. See firsthand, the powerful and spectacular hunting techniques of saltwater crocodiles as they feed on buffalo meat. The staff is issued with Wildlife Permits by National Parks and Wildlife for our interactions and no animals are harmed in any way during your wildlife interactions.

    Very well organised. Excellent tourguidesbith on the bus and the boat. The only thing was we only saw a few crocodiles, I was expecting to see a lot. Otherwise I couldn't fault the trip. Definitely worth seeing.
