“Crocs up Close”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We went on the 11:00 cruise, and even during high tide, we saw more than half a dozen crocs. They were huge, and it was a thrilling experience. The guide (Morgan) was very experienced and worked very hard to make sure that we had the best possible experience, and that everyone was safe. This is important, because you do get very close. Overall, we had a great time, and would definitely recommend it to our friends. The only problem is a 5km dirt road to get there. It isn't rough, and you can easily do it with a 2wd car. We thought it was worth the trip.

“Great tour”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

We ended up here accidentally, we were booked on another croc cruise but they fitted us in. The cruise was fantastic much smaller and more intimate. Harry was passionate about the crocs and environment. We saw plenty of crocs big and small, also lots of bird life. Really enjoyed our time. Thanks got some great photos too.

“Dominator vs Brutus”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

We thought this cruise was excellent and the crocs were amazing! This takes you up so close to the crocs so if that's what you are after then this cruise is for you. We always prefer smaller groups as it is more personal and altho our boat was full it was still great. Love the way our guide fed the crocs on both sides so everyone got to see the action. Well worth the money.

“Disrespectful”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

Amazing crocs, and we got *really* close to them, but our guide displayed a distinct lack of respect for these magnificent animals. He treated them as if they were only there for him to make money off, not as an opportunity to enlighten us about their lives and behaviour. This was quite a contrast after spending two weeks in the Top End developing a deep and appreciation for country. Very much a tour to satisfy our basist appetites. Try one of the other tours - hopefully they are more professional!

“Kakadu, Litchfield National Park & Katherine Gorge”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

We arrived Darwin and collected the hire car for a self drive holiday and it was easy.
Just breath taking to experience the unspoilt nature of these parks from cascading waterfalls to towering sandstone walls of Katherine Gorge. It was astounding to see the array of wildlife like wallabies, reptiles and an abundance of bird life as you cruise the wetlands. To admire the ancient Aboriginal rock arts and landscape spanning more than thousands of years.
The Jumping Croc cruise was fantastic, to watch the Crocodile leap out of the water to take its baits.
