Full description
Experience one big day of adventure in the Northern Territory. Start the day with a scenic flight over Darwin and its surrounds. Get lost in the blue of the sky and the sea. Witness the landscape as it changes dramatically from city to wetland rainforest. See unique aerial perspectives including breathtaking views over Darwin and the floodplains. Spot incredible outback sights before descending for an exciting water landing on Sweets Lagoon where you will disembark on a Pontoon. Whizz past trees and foliage as you come to a stop. 

Then, get ready for the speedy airboat ride of a lifetime. The iconic supercharged airboat will maneuver over the water - a thrilling ride indeed. Get up close with the big saltwater crocodiles and other unique wildlife of the outback which your local guide will introduce you to. Try your hand at fishing for the elusive barramundi or cool off in the croc-safe pool, the only place in Australia you can swim with wild crocodiles. This exciting adventure is conducted by skilled pilots and professional staff.
