this is a great way to see spectacular wildlife, flora and safely observe crocodiles in their habitat. Experience NT river life at its best and be blown away from the awesome power of crocs jumping, eating and preying. Adelaide River Cruises guides are highly trained and knowledgeable of the species along the river, and its lands history. Easy to get... More

Had a great time with Captain Harry. Saw a couple of big chunky crocs all the way down to a little baby! We were shown the Crocs feeding in the river and on the bank, as well as having the birds of prey swoop for scraps around the boat. Great time and would recommend this smaller boat as you're so...

Well worth the 1.25 hour from Darwin - we arrived from WA on a charter flight, picked up a car and just made the 1.00pm tour with Morgan. Saw crocs as soon as we ventured out -- they know the sound of the boat so they come up for a feed. Morgan knew each croc by personality and their names... More

If you want to see jumping crocs this is the cruise to go on. What a fantastic time we had. Harry was a wealth of knowledge and I was enthralled with his stories, facts and history of the area. The crocs didn't disappoint. This will definitely be the highlight of our trip. Thanks Harry for your generosity and true blue... More

We enjoyed this immensely, jumping crocs are a must see, the commentary is alive and protective for both you and the croc. Just keep arms and lens in the boat and take many many photos(cull when you get home). They are magnificent in their environment and purely prehistoric. Their power is unbelievable and instinctive, they are the sharks of the... More

The NT is renowned for its crocodiles and particularly its saltwater crocks. This cruise is the perfect opportunity to observe them in their natural habitat up close! Adelaide river is about an hour and a half easy drive from Darwin and is home to some superb specimens of large (did I say large!) salties as they are known. The cruise... More

We were a bit late and missed our tour by five mins...but the duo at Adelaide River Cruises were kind enough to give us a private tour as we had driven all that way and they didn't want us to go back without see some amazing crocs! It was simply fascinating....you really don't realise how powerful these creatures are until... More

Great for all local and tourist and kids and adults. Go on the smaller boats as the crocs are huge and even more scary when you are up so close.

We have been twice,with both Harry and Morgan. Slightly different trips but both "best ever". Their very professional, but still laid back approach and genuine love of their environment adds to the wildlife and scenery experience. Saw amazing things. This was as good a day out as any I have had anywhere in Australia or overseas. Took 5 friends with... More

See the crocodiles leap out of the water as well as the big ones lying on the bank. Its a short and informative tour that had the kids loving being scared of crocodiles.
