Spectacular Jumping Crocodile Cruise

On a Spectacular Jumping Crocodile Cruise, travellers can view elusive, powerful crocodiles in their natural habitat.

Over the hour-long cruise, the friendly crew will show you a range of different sized crocodiles as they leap spectacularly in the air. This really is a photographers delight!

In 1971 the Australian saltwater crocodile, believed to be facing extinction, was declared a protected species. Today increased numbers of saltwater crocs roam the waterways of the Northern Territory.

Spectacular Jumping Crocodile Cruises are on the Adelaide River, an hours drive from Darwin, on the Arnhem Highway on the way to Kakadu. We share the same entranceway as the Window on the Wetlands Visitors Centre. There are four cruises daily at 9am, 11am, 1pm & 3pm.

Complimentary Tea and Coffee is available on arrival. Guests are welcome to bring their own lunch and enjoy a picnic in our kiosk beside the beautiful Adelaide River.
