Four of us up in Darwin on business found ourselves with a spare two hours in the afternoon during the rainy season. Everyone says don't bother going out during the wet. But we did with Jim Smith skipper of Sea Darwin, a fast and comfortable...More

My friend and I did the turtle tracks tour and it was terrible. Specifically, these people are crooks who are more concerned about taking your money than they are making sure you get a good tour. On our tour a few weeks ago it rained...More

We enjoyed a wonderful relaxed evening on the fish & chip sunset cruise. Cruise commentary was informative, food was delicious, sunset was fabulous with ideal viewing standing on a sandbar in the middle on the harbour. Highly recommend this sunset cruise.

We really enjoyed the cruise. Our guide was friendly & informative & we got great insight into the bombing of Darwin. We were offered water & biscuits which was fine but would have preferred bottled water rather than the small paper cup. Overall a good...More

We booked at short notice to do the Bombing of Darwin and didn't realise we get to do a cruise. This should have been about an hour but we got to do 20 mins longer. The guide was really friendly and he knew his history....More

How is it that Australians don't know the extent of the war coming to Australia!!! Months of bombings and great stories of Aust. and allied forces defending Darwin from constant bombings. A terrific range of story telling.

The history combined with the Flying Doctors was an amazing museum. Holograms, movies, etc made for a great interactive history lesson. Recommended for sure.

We enjoyed our Fish & Chips on the Sandbar & the cruise around the harbour. It was beautiful weather & due to some Naval activities we also got very up close to a submarine. A very relaxing evening on the harbour. Highly recommend.
