Croc Jumping Darwin: Keep Your Hands Inside at All Times


Spectacular Jumping Crocodile Cruise Review is part of the TPOL Down Under Trip Report.

The Outback Adventure Begins

I came to Darwin to see crocs. Stop one was a croc jumping tour on the Adelaide River. For the fair price of $45AUD ($32), croc lovers are taken by boat to one of the habitats of the saltwater crocodile. Stepping aboard, tourists are warned about standing during the journey and are told to keep the limbs they want to keep inside the boat. Unlike a Disney ride, I heeded this advice and here’s why: Crocodiles are huge, powerful, and fast. It’s crazy to see them use their tails to propel out of the water. We saw three cross that day. The first was a lady. The second and third were males. 

Would you swim in here?

I recommend the croc jumping tour as an appetizer for the Darwin croc experience. Just keep your hands inside the boat.

TPOL’s TIP: Here’s the website for Spectacular Jumping Crocodile Cruises.


  1. Making it so that crocodiles automatically associate humans with food. What could go wrong? Why do parks say not to feed the bears?
