Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My favourite part was when the crocs were fed and we just watched the raw power of these animals. While keeping my hands way, away from them. Despite ‘crocodiles all over the place’ 😊, the environment/ wildlife was beautiful, even peaceful. Dylan was knowledgeable and it was a bit more special knowing it was a family business.

Glad to hear you had a fantastic time, Linda! Watching those crocs up close must have been quite the thrill, it sounds like you still found some peace amidst the wild. It’s great that Dylan's knowledge and the family-run vibe added something special to your visit. Thanks for sharing your experience!

Amazing experience. Kids loved it and so did we! To see the crocodiles up so close to the boat and the sound of their jaws snapping is an experience not to miss.

Emma, your tip about not wearing white made us chuckle! 😂 Thrilled to hear the whole family had a blast and got to experience the thrill of seeing the crocs up close. That jaw snap is definitely unforgettable. Thanks for sharing your adventure with us!

Darwin is an amazing city, where the people are relaxed, most of the time the weather is perfect, you can do a lots of outdoor activities except swimming on the beach where the crocodiles cruising. Most of the Darwin are friendly, and multicultural environment give you a colourful life style and yummy food with quite a variety of choices of cuisines. It's close to quite a few famous National Parks with beautiful environments and scenery.

Wai cheong, thrilled to hear you're enjoying Darwin's vibrant vibe! It’s a unique blend of relaxed atmosphere, perfect weather for outdoor adventures (minus the beach swims, thanks to our croc friends), and a welcoming, multicultural community. The variety of delicious cuisines and proximity to stunning National Parks truly makes it a gem. Thanks for spotlighting what makes Darwin so special!

Incredible experience seeing so many crocodiles in the wild. Thanks to our guide Dylan for a fun and very informative cruise.
Many great moments including seeing both Dominator and Brutus but the highlight of the day was seeing a juvenile croc launch out of the water in the pursuit of lunch.
Would I recommend this tour…Absolutely!
