Crocodile hops onto fishing boat, interrupts couple’s adventure

A spine-chilling video shows a crocodile hopping onto a couple’s fishing boat.

Kathryn Dyball and Cameron Bates published a video of their terrifying encounter on YouTube. They said that they were fishing on their 15-foot longboat in northwestern Australia when the incident occurred.

Their YT channel is called “TIDES — Kat and Cam’s Kimberley Adventures”. 

The video was posted with the caption: “We packed our 4.6m tinny with 7 jerry cans and a swag and sent it over 400km away across the King Sound, and island-hopped our way through the Buccaneer Archipelago in the remote Kimberley. Ft. goldys, northern jewfish, mudcrabs, coral trout and even a cheeky saltwater crocodile that tried to jump into our boat!”

While they were having fun on their adventure, they sensed a predator loitering in the water.

The couple caught the moment on camera when the reptile was attracted to them because of the lure for the fish. He quickly swims towards the boat and hops on the boat.

The crocodile follows the fishing line thrown into the water by the couple.

It rams into the phone recording the incident. For a moment, the animal holds onto the edge of the boat but fails to do so and slips back into the water.

The video has almost 160,000 views on YouTube.
