Go Swimming with Killer Crocodiles

I could lie to you and tell you I love water and enjoy swimming, but I’d be lying.

It must be the chow chow that drives my H2O fears rather than the golden retriever coursing through my veins.

Or it may just be that accident I had when I was five, where I had mistaken a leaf on a water for a rock and nearly drowned after stepping on it. My parents’ laughing at me didn’t help.

In return I’d like to offer them a vacation to Crocosaurus Cove, where they can go swimming with Crocodiles.

You read that right, humans in water with crocs, on a voluntary basis.  Check out this story about this latest attraction.

If you want the adrenaline boost of sky-diving but the sensation of swimming with dolphin, why not take a dip with some crocodiles?

An Australian tourist attraction is offering people the chance to go swimming with massive – and very dangerous – saltwater crocodiles.

They say thrill seekers will be perfectly safe as they enter the crocs pool in a clear acrylic cage … that said they do call it “the cage of death.”

Correct me if I’m wrong, but if you are going to be perfectly safe there really isn’t much there from a thrill seeking standpoint. If you ask me, this is geared more to grandfathers, with bad hearts, than to the Evel Knievels of the world.

Just 4cm of acrylic separates brave holiday-makers from the feisty crocs at Crocosaurus Cove in Darwin, Australia, and there are plenty of deep croc tooth shaped scratches in the cages walls.
“The purpose built acrylic cage is lowered from an overhead monorail into any of the four separate croc enclosures for your ‘up close and personal’ dive encounter with Croc Cove’s massive salt water crocodiles,” they added.

You know what would be great? After lowering the tourists into the water, the acryclic enclosure is lifted up. Now that’s a tourist attractiong I’d pay to see.


Got something to say?
