Took the upstream cruise one afternoon and whole family enjoyed the experience. We saw three crocodiles and some great bird life. Length of the tour is good and the boat feels safe and is well designed for all to see.

Great! The skipper was super knowledgeable and passionate about what he does, clearly loves his crocs and the role he plays in their conservation and public awareness. Made a SUPER NERVOUS traveller (me) at ease during the cruise.

The guide was very knowledgeable, giving us a really good insight into the life of the crocodile. He managed to find about 4 during the 1 hour trip, plus some interesting birds.

The boat holds 50 so deal with them directly and you should be okay with a booking
