SPECTACULAR JUMPING CROCODILE CRUISE is the best possible way to be a witness to the natural jumping behaviour of these amazing Australian Saltwater Crocodiles. Our cruises operate four times daily at 9am, 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Each one hour cruise will amaze you with how close in proximity you are to these wild animals and provide you with invaluable information about the intriguing Saltwater Crocodile. At Spectacular Jumping Crocodile Cruises our passion for these animals is clearly evident.

Awesome tour!!! Smaller boat could see the crocs so close! The guides were very funny and we saw big crocs! Very good times and will be back for sure! Big crocs jumping was the best! We won't be swimming in Darwin for sure.

Had a great one hour trip. Our guides Carla and Jade were fantastic and we got to see a 5m croc feeding up on the bank. Brilliant! Loved it, couldn't stop smiling.
