Adelaide River - 31st August 2009
Well, I'd been on peaceful crocodile tours before on the Daintree River and Yellow Water at Kakadu, so on this trip we opted for one of the jumping crocodile tours on the Adelaide River. The commentator on the boat assured us that it was all natural behaviour, although being rather lazy creatures and meat not often being proferred to them just above the surface of the water, I guess there's not too much danger of the crocodiles starting to do this to wary boaters and tourists. It's a pretty action packed tour, with numerous crocodiles being fed (the females are the most agile), plus some baby crocodiles spotted on the banks and the local kites also given a snack, whilst swooping down around the boat.
