Awesome cruise! Highly recommend this cruise! You have to follow the signs off the Arnhem Highway. Excellent guide, great service! Recommend this over the Spectacular Jumping cruise; I have done both; this is better.

A great trip where you see a lot of hungry crocs! The guide knows the crocs and where to see them. Some jump higher than others but wait until you meet Brutus. A must do if you’re in NT
