Day 1: Half Day Darwin to Adelaide River
Join us for one of Darwin's most iconic, must-do activities. A half Day Jumping Croc Cruise on the Adelaide River. Departing the city, we journey about 60 km South East towards the Marrakai wetlands, home to not only an apex predator, the crocodile, but 117 different species of reptiles and 280 different types of birds. A truly exhilarating and unique experience for our guests to get up close and personal with 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 100,000 saltwater crocodiles, predominantly in and around the Darwin, Adelaide River and Mary River areas. So there is no need to worry; you’ll be sure to see the biggest reptile in the world and the oldest creature to walk the planet since dinosaurs. These prehistoric beasts grow up to 6 metres in length (the size of a small bus) and can weigh up to 1000 kg. An infamous crocodile called “Sweetheart” was captured not too far from the Adelaide River after repeatedly chewing the motors off the back of fisherman’s boats and stealing the farmer’s 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 first-hand 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.
