Overview

AIRBOAT Come for a cruise down the lower Ord River in our new purpose built airboat. The amazing capabilities of the boat will have you gliding through the shallows over rocks and mud banks that would stop any other boat that dared to try. From the safety of the boat you are likely to see fresh and salt water crocodiles and have a good chance to take in the diverse plant and animal variety that so much water can attract. Tours run 7 days a week departing from the pickup point. Times 1:30pm 2:30pm 3:30pm departures for a 35 - 40 minute tour Min 4 max 8 passages HELICOPTER TOURS Heli-Fishing Experience A bird's eye view of Kununurra and the Ord Valley is what you will get as we make our way down stream to the island area. Make sure you keep your eyes open to spot the big salty's that inhabit the Lower Ord River. Once on the island try your hand at hooking the ever illusive barramundi while your guide prepares you some billy tea and a scone. After morning tea you depart the island for your journey home via the Disvion Dam Wall and Carr Boyd Ranges. We also offer on the return leg the chance for you to cool off in a natural spring before continuing on home.

My wife and I just did this and we rate it very highly. The driver was great and made sure everyone was able to get some great photos of the crocs. The actual ride itself was also great fun, worth every penny.
