What you can expect

Your epic journey commences as our Jet boat transports you from the Stokes Hill Wharf across Darwin Harbour (at some serious speed) towards our city’s scenic mangroves. With a few spins along the way, your heart is sure to be pumping! Once you reach the mangroves, you will jump aboard our Airboat where you will cruise along the mudflats and take in the beautiful surrounds. Enjoy the local birdlife and keep an eye out in the waters below for sharks, crocs, dolphins, mud crabs, even stingrays. Then it’s time to REALLY get your adrenaline pumping. You’ll be left smiling from ear to ear as you spin and glide across the mud, powered by that huge V8 engine! Once you’re all muddied up, you will jump back into the jet boat to soar across the Timor Sea, with picturesque views of the Darwin Harbour in plain site to end your epic journey.
