Peaceful cruise with plenty of wildlife
, Oct 2020
This was an awesome day out in the Kakadu wetlands. We saw plenty of crocs and birdlife and the skipper was super informative about all flora and fauna. We were lucky enough to see a croc catching and devouring a large fish.

Sunrise tour

The sunrise cruise was enjoyable but we felt it was too expensive for what it was. Our tour guide was full of interesting information.
Yellow Water- Must do NT experience
, Oct 2020
We had a really great experience thanks to Woody. From picking us up at Cooinda and commentary on the cruise. His knowledge was first class. Lucky we also saw more Crocs than we could count, lots different birds, buffalo, wild pigs and ducks galore. A MUST do! well worth the money and just a fantastic experience 😀 Take drinks/sunscreen and hat🔅

We absolutely loved this - so much so that after the early morning cruise we booked on the late afternoon cruise as well!! Such a peaceful, serene place and our guides were very knowledgeable.
A must do.

A beautiful way to see the real Kakadu. Woody was a very informative and funny guide. We saw and heard about so many animals due to his expertise. Just stunning. Would do it over and over.
Fantastic experience

This is an excellent cruise, great operators and amazing scenery. Highly recommended. We went with our three young adult children and all thoroughly enjoyed it.
Dennis with 2 Ns
, Oct 2020
Dennis with 2 Ns was the star attraction. Loved hearing about his childhood lessons learned from his elders- bush medicine, the punishment tree, how to scare crocs by beating the water. Great with kids, had a boat full of them! “ good hunter gatherers “ Loved the theatrical delivery. He deserves a pay rise for sure!!
Wonderful fabulous sunrise tour. Well worth it and highly recommended.

We did the sunrise tour which was totally fabulous. It was teaming with wildlife (Lots of crocs!) and such variety in bird and plant life. Greg, our tour guide was so informative and interesting. Thank you.
