Full description

Experience leaping saltwater crocodiles up close on a half-day cruise along the Adelaide River, departing from Darwin. Once on the river, your local guide will entice the prehistoric creatures to leap out of the water for an alarming but thrilling display of their mighty jaws.

Continue to the Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre, the highest point on the lower Adelaide River floodplain. From the top of the center, enjoy superb panoramic views across the scenic Marrakai Plains.

Next, visit the Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve to discover its diverse habitat and wildlife, including eucalyptus forest, open scrubland, and melaleuca woodland.

The floodplain and open water attract a significant number of birds, as well as reptiles, mammals, and marsupials that add to your wildlife adventure. Stroll the boardwalks to keep your feet dry as your wander through monsoon and paperback forests.

We were picked up at our accommodation in a modern coach. Good trip out on the highway then turned onto a dirt track toward the river. Jumped on a boat with an excellent informative patient guide Wokky who told us all about the crocs along with bad jokes and puns. Back to the coach and delivered home. Good afternoon out.

I contacted AAPT on tour day, about when and where our pick up was to be, as I didn't have access to my emails,and was given conflicting information. Luckily we did get collected at the bus stop outside our park, but on the other side of the road. Our tour was obviously running late, as we were collected by a mini bus and transferred to a big bus we meet on the highway. The bus driver was very knowledgeable which was great. We really enjoyed seeing the jumping crocs, but didn't go very far up the river, then we were returned to the jetty. We were then taken to Fog dam, and our driver gave us lots of info which we enjoyed. Sadly we never got to visit the Wetlands visitor centre, but overall we really enjoyed the tour. Unfortunately our tour was not half day (or 6 hour) as advertised, as we were only collected at 1.50pm and were returned about 6.15pm

The trip is worth it, it is fascinating to see the animals up close and also "in the air". The only minus point was the arrangement for the meeting point of the pick-up, the street name with house number was given and is also easy to find, but the bus is behind the building, which we only found out by luck. The fact that we found out during the tour that there were pick-up points that were much closer to our address surprised us a little. So maybe just ask again shortly before the trip if there are other options.
