Full description
How close are you willing to get to some of nature’s most aggressive and dangerous reptiles as they leap out of the Australian Northern Territory waterways to grab a little snack? Feel your heart beating as you see the biggest reptile in the world and oldest creature to walk the planet since the time of dinosaurs from the safety of an Adelaide River boat cruise. Stand in awe of these prehistoric beasts, which can grow up to 6 meters in length — the size of a small bus — and can weigh up to 1,000 kilograms. Don’t worry, you’re in the safe hands of highly trained guides who will ensure the safety of both the crocodiles and passengers at all times while feeding the crocodiles buffalo meat. See firsthand the powerful and spectacular hunting techniques of saltwater crocodiles.

Absolutely loved the jumping croc tour. The tour guides were amazing!! Best tour we have been on up here in the top end. The only criticism was the “luxury bus” out there. It was a little uncomfortable……seats where old, uncomfortable and tired. I am glad I wasn’t on the big all day tour in that bus! Apart from that, I would highly recommend the tour.
