Spotting Saltwater Crocodiles

Please be aware that spotting crocodiles in the wild is not always guaranteed. We are on the river most days, and we know where to look, but these are wild animals and we cannot guarantee sightings. We estimate a 98% success rate on cruises between May and October.

Between October and May, FNQ begins to reach scorching temperatures. Therefore, the Johnstone River becomes a lot warmer and crocodiles will spend most of their time either in the warm water or on the banks, sunning themselves.

This reduces our chances of spotting crocodiles between October and May, but we’ll do our best.
