Loved the experience!
, Jan 2021
It was interesting doing the cruise in the wet season. Very beautiful. I look forward to doing the cruise again in the dry for comparison. We still saw a couple of crocs and birds nesting and the tour guide was very knowledgeable as well as entertaining.
Guide, scenery, wildlife in symphony
, Jan 2021
The guide (Dennis) knew his stuff, spoke from an indigenous perspective and used a soft humour to engage with those on the boat. The scenery was stunning, alive, soaked with water from recent rainfall. The wildlife - crocodiles, a range of water birds and eagles - was plentiful and apparently unconcerned by us.

The yellow water cruise is a kakadu must do. We did our 4th cruise recently, this time in wet season. The best time to go is the dry but still we love the relaxing 2 hours on the billabongs near Cooinda. We stayed in a clamping tent and woke early to view sunrise at this fantastic location.
Great tour

Stunning views, a great experience for the whole family. Knowledgeable, funny tour guide. We’ll definitely be back.
Relaxing cruise in a stunning setting
, Jan 2021
The scenery, the cool overcast wet season day and the cheerful, informative guide. I took the cruise with a wheelchair passenger and although the ramp onto the boat wasn't wide enough for the chair, the guide did his best to accommodate us.

Excellent tour. A must in Kakadu. Very relaxing experience with a great tour guide. Dry season best time if you want to see crocs. Wet season best if you want to see lots of water.

Dennis the tour guide was incredible. Made the whole experience interactive and educational. Watching all the native animals come to life during the 2 hour experience was amazing.

We saw lots of crocs and birds, which we couldn't fine by ourselves. He is knowledgeable, answered all questions from us and also very funny. He kept us entertained all the time.
