Dennis with a double nn was the absolute best! And Johnn the buffalo. What an absolute treat this tour is!
Great and interesting

The guide knew his stuff and was very good and friendly, also loved the access to fresh cold water. Would recommend
Don’t risk it.

We saw more than a dozen crocs in the wild. We learnt that up here in the top end, that swimming or even just being close to water was a dangerous activity. Crocs are cunning patient powerful predators that will see you well before you see them.
Great tour, terrible booking experience
, Jul. 2022
The cruise in itself was fabulous however our experience booking has been questionable, being charged more in American dollars when we are in Australia then also getting charged a fee from our bank has really disappointed us. In order to get a refund for the additional cost was a lot of work from me and I wouldn’t get the refund for 7 days and I can’t afford to pay for the cruise twice so we just dealt with it. Will not recommend people to book through Viator when it is miss leading… not once was I told it was American dollars until the confirmation came through… extremely disappointed but clearly these reviews don’t get looked at as I have previously said this in a booking review
Amazing informative tour which was worth every cent
, Jul. 2022
Fantastic trip, we were very lucky and saw lots of fabulous wildlife and amazing flora. Seeing lots of crocs in their natural environment and not being ‘taunted’ to get a reaction was pleasing. Our guide Adam, was so knowledgable and provided us with wonderful, thoughtful and extremely interesting commentary. Great to hear the history of the area and learn about negative impacts and how this could be averted in the future. Sunset was amazing
Highlight of our Trip to Kakadu
, Jul. 2022
I can fully recommend this tour, Jess was very knowledgeable about the history & wildlife of Kakadu. I ticked off my bucket list, by seeing lots of crocs on the tour, lots of other interesting wildlife to see along the way. A great way to see & experience The Yellow River. The Lodge, which is the pickup & drop off point is also a great base for lunch & coffee.

our guide Dennis was great, funny and knowledgeable made the cruise fun, the scenery is amazing. We saw lots of cross and birdlife as well as pigs and buffalo although they were inthe distance
Crocs in the wild not on show like others
, May 2022
Our guide was a local, growing up in the area and his commentary was interesting and humorous. We saw 4 crocs which was great. The bird life and vegetation was spectacular as was the sunset. If you are in the area you need to book this trip.
