Wat is inbegrepen?
Join our Jumping Crocodile Cruise tour from Darwin for a truly exhilarating and unique experience 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. It is said that Australia’s Top End hosts over a 100,000 saltwater crocodiles predominantly in and around the Darwin, Adelaide River and Mary River areas.
See 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. An infamous crocodile called “Sweetheart” was captured not too far from the Adelaide River after repeatedly chewing the motors off the back of fishermans boats and stealing the farmers cows. Sweetheart unfortunately passed away and can now be seen taxidermied in the Darwin Museum.
Our Jumping Crocodile cruise partners are highly trained to ensure the safety of both the crocodiles and passengers at all times. Crocodiles are fed buffalo meat, so that guests can see firsthand the powerful and spectacular hunting techniques of a saltwater crocodile. All staff are issued with Wildlife Permits by National Parks and Wildlife for our interactions and no animals are harmed in any way during our wildlife interactions.
