Crocodile Hunting

One of the major tourist attractions in Darwin area is undoubtedly joining a "hunt" for crocodiles. Of course, there is the Crocosaurus Cove. But to see these reptiles in the wild, you need to head out from the city centre and join a boat cruise on the Adelaide River, well know for its high concentration of Saltwater Crocodiles. There are, in total, more than 100,000 reptiles of this species in the northern Australia's rivers. However, it is actually really rare to see them. On the Adelaide River, they are used to the boats and they know that they will be fed, so they do not hesitate to leave their place of hiding. Even if we are on a boat (read "relatively safe"), it is still pretty impressive to see them approaching. When close to the piece of meat waiting for them, they do not hesitate to jump out of the water (photo), showing visitors their incredible power. There are many cruises available. We experienced the activity offered by Spectacular Jumping Crocodile Cruise which claims to have the most experienced staff on the river. This is one of the most exciting activity we have done so far. This cruise, which lasts for about an hour, is to put on your To-Do List right away!
