Fantastic experience: A really wonderful day with Ivan, our pilot and guide - excellent scenic flight from Darwin to Cooinda, time on land and on water in the area, then return flight to Darwin. Ivan shared much knowledge and looked after us so very well! Kevin of Yellow Water Cruises did the same during our time on the water. Lunch at Cooinda Lodge was perfect and displays in the Warradjan Cultural Centre very informative. For us, a perfect introduction to Kakadu - such a great perspective from the air; got to see and learn so much in a short period of time. A very special day! Thank you, all!

Fantastic experience: What a fantastic experience and something you have to do once in your life. Great service from Tegan, and our pilots Declan and Cian were fantastic with lots of information, humour and talented flying. I would thoroughly recommend this experience if you have the time and are able to.

Fantastic experience: Seeing Kakadu from the air was amazing. Perfect perspective on this huge landscape. Yellow Waters cruise was beautiful with lots of birdlife. Expanses of water lilies and a few shy crocodiles. Kakadu Air were friendly and helped make my tour happen in spite of date and time changes to my cruise itinerary.

Fantastic experience: Exceptional! A very professional, friendly experience - our pilot Myles made it great with such a smooth, enjoyable flight over some of best scenery of the Top End. The sheer expanse of the area can only be captured from the air, and the aircraft itself has clean, comfortable leather seats and clean windows. Highly recommend for locals and visitors to the area

Fantastic experience: This trip was truefully amazing. Steve (Pilot) was sensational all day. He was able to provide great commentry and local knowledge throughout the tour. The Yellow River cruise was also great. The wildlife, habitat & cultural incites were first rate. Overall the scenery experienced from the air & ground is truely spectacular and the images will last my life time. Although the day is somewhat expensive it is worth every cent.

Fantastic experience: There was no flight on that day, i booked the flight on my own (had to pay a bit extra) but wow was it worth it, the low level flight to Kakadu is next level. The perspective you get from the air is amazing. Nice twin engine aircraft and a great pilot. Loved it!!!
