Swim with crocodiles in the Cage of Death, Darwin, Australia.

                    

                    

Are you brave enough? Two women smile for an underwater photo as Chopper The Croc floats in the water above them.

The theme park known as Crocosaurus Cove Darwin, opened its doors in July 2008 has set a new standard of interaction when it comes to the top End's most iconic reptiles.

                         
Visitors can come face to face with Chopper, the 58-stone crocodile at the Australian Attraction. 
 
Its inner city location, housing almost 200 crocodiles,
including some of the largest saltwater crocodiles on the planets and its aquarium like under water viewing of these prehistoric creatures, has proven extremely popular with both locals and tourists alike. However it is the Cage of Death, Australia's only crocodile dive that has firmly put Crocosaurus Cove on the map.
 
                        
Dare-devils spends 20 minutes under the water at the theme park, and get to watch the crocs munching on chicken, beef and fish.
 
Thousands of people have been thrilled & terrified by sharing the very environment of 5m plus crocodile, while the unique activity has featured in media publications around the world.
 
                        
 
Every dive includes 15 minutes in the enclosure with one of these massive reptiles. Regular feeding by the crocodile handlers when people are inside the cage encourages more movement from the crocodiles and ensures an up close and personal, face to face encounter that must be seen to be believed!
 
                        
Guests can get themselves acquainted with the 86 year-old star at the attraction, named Chopper who feeds on chicken, beef and fish.
 
Operated by an over-head monorail and designed for 1 or 2 people per cage, the Cage of Death has the dare-devil visitor suspended above the crocs before being lowered into the pen to get an up close and personal look at these amazing reptiles.
 
                                                
                                        Up close and personal, but safe from being
                                                         munched and eaten!

Don’t miss the chance of getting 360 degree views and the crocs as the Cove's on-site photographers captures amazing images both inside and outside of the crocodile enclosures.
 
                                
Two young tourists put up a gallant front to pose for the photo-shot at the adrenaline fuelled attraction in Darwin.

Meet some of the famous inhabitants of the Crocosaurus, such as Chopper and William & Kate and be wowed by this unique, once in a lifetime experience.
 
                              
                                          Look! It's making a turn to come for us!
                                                    What will happen next?

The Cage of Death operates 11 times per day, and participants can go it alone, or bring a friend. 
 


 

Under water adventure: The 9-foot-high container is known as the Cage of Death, and that protects the thrill seekers from the giant reptiles.
Feeding time ! The woman looks scared as Chopper the 58-stone reptile rises to get his meal, just inches away from the two curious guests.
