What to Expect
Join Darwin's most iconic must-do activity – the half-day Jumping Croc Cruise on the Adelaide River.!
Departing the city, journey about 60km 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.
The Jumping Crocodile Cruise partners are the only Indigenous-owned cruise operator, where profits go back into supporting the traditional owners of the surrounding area. They're also highly trained to ensure the safety of both the crocodiles and passengers at all times.
FUN FACT: Crocodiles are fed buffalo meat so that guests can see first-hand the powerful and spectacular hunting techniques of a saltwater crocodile.
Enjoy live commentary while learning about these magnificent creatures, croc biology, behaviours and local ecosystem. All staff are issued with Wildlife Permits by National Parks and Wildlife for these interactions and no animals are harmed in any way during these wildlife interactions.
It's a truly exhilarating and unique experience for guests to 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 100,000 saltwater crocodiles predominantly in and around the Darwin, Adelaide River and Mary River areas. As such, there's no need to worry, you'll be sure to 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!
FUN FACT: An infamous crocodile called “Sweetheart” was once 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.
