JO COLLISON took these photo of a croc cruising the waters off Sunset Beach near Airlie Beach yesterday.
The calm conditions made it easy for the photographer to spot the crocodile.
Ms Collison said it looked like a large croc given the distance from shore.
"Spotted this big fella making the most of the perfect day in paradise, cruising the current past Sunset Beach heading towards Glocester Passage around 7am this morning," she posted.
"Seriously though we will definitely be keeping the kids out of the water today."
