Darwin experience like no other
This is an absolute must do! My family & I loved every single minute. All of the staff we came in contact with Dallas, Dave, Carla, Jack & Jacko you guys rock! I wouldn’t normally remember everyone’s name but that just shows how amazing, knowledgeable & passionate these guys are. True blue Aussie’s that love their country & happy to show some of Darwin’s outback beauty with you. If you want to experience something with your children that I don’t think you will find anywhere else please don’t hesitate, just book. Hotel pick-up, sea plane, boat cruise, float boat & a helicopter ride you will never forget! Our kids 8 & 10 still talk about it with a huge smile across there face!

Absolute must do
This tour was by far and away one of the very best tours I have ever done.
We were picked up at our motel and taken to the airport where we boarded our float plane. The views were stunning and the trip comfortable.
The plane landed silently on the lagoon which was shrouded in smoke which added to the mystery.
As we cruised around the lagoon the boys cooked up a storm and pointed out crocodiles and bird life.
The airboat was fabulous and Jack is a master of his craft while whispering to the crocodiles. His knowledge of the area was great.
We then took off in the helicopter for a quick flyover of the area. Checking out the devastation of the recent fires and looking out for crocodiles who needed to be moved on.
I also got to go fishing however no joy.
Overall the experiences were fantastic and the boys were knowledgeable and great fun. Definitely worth the money

The overnight adventure with the lot
Float plane, airboat, helicopter, wildlife - oh my! Even though the adrenalin is pumping the professional team always makes you feel safe.
Camp hosts Faye and Max were so welcoming and they put on an awesome spread. Unwinding with a diverse group of people around the fire pot was a great way to relax after an eventful afternoon. And the stories that were shared ...
The next morning there was a sumptuous breakfast, opportunity for a dip in the pool and more crocs to meet.
So much packed in at the end you just sit back and think ... WOW!!! ... did we just do that or what???
I'm told the experience at other times of the year is different. So, would I do this again? In a heartbeat!
