Cage of Death

Normally when someone says they’ll have you swimming with the fishes, you run your ass away. Now it may just be a friendly invitation to Australia’s dangerously fun underwater enclosure. Unless some Italian guy with a ring and cigar speaks those words, then it’s still a death threat. But it’s not any more of a death threat than swimming in the so-named Cage of Death, home to some of Australia’s largest crocodiles. Each diver is basically held prisoner for approximately 5 minutes in each of the 3 enclosures, where they are submerged with the massive saltwater beasts.

Why is Australia the source of prisoners and torture? The Cage of Death brings new meaning to the phrase “up close and personal” because the over-head monorail by which your cage is operated can only support up to two people, and nothing is more personal than being butted up against the last person you will ever see in your life. Crocosaurus Cove, basically the Seaquarium of Australia located in Darwin City, provides an on-site photographer to get 360 degree shots of both your extreme fear and the crocodiles’ extreme amusement.
