Swimming with the Crocodiles!
Ever think about visiting Australia? They are known for their pristine beaches and amazing wildlife. It is one of the top destinations for travelers and on our bucket list for sure! No matter what your fancy this island will deliver unique experiences that are impossible to find anywhere else in the world. Take a dip in the Cage of Death this Summer! This is not an adventure for the faint of heart but for thrill seekers only. This 30-minute adventure has you in an acrylic tank that dangles above the crocodiles while they enjoy a feeding frenzy. Then you are lowered into the water (yes you are still in the tank) while the crocodiles get a closer look at you! This bucket list adventure will require a trip down under to Darwin, Australia and about $200. Well worth it to take a closer look at these majestic beasts!
