our guide was brilliant - loved the way he called to the crocs. "come,come" and they came!! It didn't last long enough for me. Not sure I fully agree with the handling of he young crocs if the intention is to release them back into the wild but I'm not the expert

I remember taking this tour as a kid and loving it. Our own kids were so excited to do it, and they certainly loved it too. Our guide was so very fun & really seems to love the crocs (not merely walking us through a rehearsed script). We're glad we chose the tour at J. Charles Swaby, as the canopied boats are comfortable and offered us well needed protection from the sun and a little bit of rain. The crocodile nursery at the end of the tour was icing on the cake as the adventurous kids in our large family group, all wanted to touch or hold the baby crocs and got a chance to do so. Awesome experience that I'm sure our kids will remember for years to come.

I really enjoyed the tour; we arrived just after lunch time so we had a private tour only with the boat driver and our guide in a small boat. Enjoyed the views and we were lucky to see 7 crocodiles. The only thing is that I wished the boat ride to take longer

Fantastic day out!! The guides are amazing, knowing where to find crocodiles and entice them to the boats. The rest of the wildlife and fauna was also great to look at as the guides pointed it out along the way. Certainly worth the trip!
