Darwins Original Jumping Crocodile Cruises Since 1985

Unmatched Safety, Quality, And Comfort

Nothing comes close to this 1-hour unforgettable experience viewing Australia’s deadliest reptile, the famed Australian Salt Water Crocodile Crocodiles are often viewed in cages or enclosures, however, the chance to view the majestic jumping crocodiles 100% in the wild and their habitats is one not to be missed.

Adelaide River Queen Cruises interacts with hundreds of different crocodiles offering both educational and exciting whilst being brief enough to ensure there is minimal impact on the surrounding ecosystem.

#1 Boat Tours In Darwin

Top Notch

Previously used this company a couple of times now so it was a no brainer to have my eldest daughter and her boyfriend go on the same tour and they loved it. The guides are friendly, welcoming, full of information. Only company to use A++++

What a fabulous tour!

Connie our guide was pretty up front and honest that the heat and the time of year meant that it may be difficult to spot crocodiles. However, we got really lucky with coming across four on the hour tour. Some history on each of the crocs was given, as with the local area. Very enjoyable! Thanks team 🙂

What a fabulous Experience!

Highlight of our holiday! The tour guides were informative (and very funny + friendly), the animal came out to play and star employees who held up the fort, made our day. Absolutely recommend!

A Croc-ing good time

The staff were so helpful with having a one month old on the cruise. Connie the tour guide was funny and very informative about the local wildlife. Even though there weren't many croc's out on the day due to mating season, Connie was still able to get a few croc's out and did a fantastic job of making them jump out of the water. Highly recommend and would do it again.
