There are few ways of getting close to 19-foot (6-meter) long saltwater crocodile safely, but the Jumping Croc Cruise is one. On a sturdy boat with well-trained staff you’ll cruise out onto the Adelaide River, looking for crocs. Staff will entice the animals with food, causing them to jump high in the air. This is an unmissable Northern Territory experience, and one that you’re sure to remember. Learn about the unique animals of the top end on a low-impact tour that respects the environment and its inhabitants.
  • A family-friendly activity that’s stroller accessible
  • Get up close to deadly saltwater crocodiles while staying safe
  • Cruise in the comfort of a shaded boat
  • Be amazed by the sheer power of these ancient animals

      Great experience with the crocs
      Mary_F, May 2023
      Dillon was great in interacting with customers and was very informative. He made sure that everyone on both sides of the boat could get a good look at the crocs and have great photo opportunities. Highly recommend them.
      What an adventure!

      My wife and I are thrill seekers, or simply put "living on the edge". When we arrived in Darwin, we looked for exciting adventures we could go on so when we saw the Jumping Crocodile adventures, we knew we had to do it. Our experience was more than what we initially anticipated. It was both educational and a heavy dose of adrenaline rush from seeing Brutus, Dominator, Scarface and Muggy chasing the boat, and Brutus jumping out of the water for a feed. The staff on site were also welcoming.

      Amazing experience, we all had an absolute blast would 110% recommend to anyone we have been on another tour previously but this one got you down and close the most!

      Sean’s commentary was informative and relaxed. He manoeuvred the boat well to give us plenty of opportunities to see the crocodiles in the water and on the bank. Great experience with a passionate operator. Hi

      Seeing all the crocs coming for the boat. Our guide was fantastic and funny and a true territory man. We all loved Brutis and very pleased he is getting the recognition he is the oldest surviving croc and he also gets a feed. Highly recommend this tour and it is well priced.

      Fabulous tour. Absolutely loved getting up close to the crocs. Lots of crocs to see and the Tour Guide was great. Excellent value for money and would definitely do it again. People we went with had done another one with a different operator and they said this one was by far the better experience.
