Felix Andersson, Jakob Hellberg and Ulrik Bergsland were vacationing at Litchfield National Park, testing out a new underwater camera when they spotted the small crocodile, the BBC said.
When they moved in for a closer look, the croc took a leap at Andersson, landing on his shoulder.
Andersson said he was surprised but unhurt.
