Immerse yourself in the history, habitat and modern-day intrigue of Darwin, a tropical city nestled at the top of Australia. Enjoy a 1-hour interactive cruise through the largest natural harbor in the Southern Hemisphere and be stimulated by contemporary stories as well as those from times gone by. Board your vessel at Stokes Hill Wharf, one of Darwin's iconic historical locations, and enjoy vistas of Darwin's Waterfront Precinct from Kitchener Bay. Transit between Stokes Hill and Fort Hill Wharfs, and then allow your local crew to use the tide, the wind and the season to select a route to maximize your Darwin Harbor experience. Cruise past Fisherman's Wharf into a mangrove waterway to explore this intriguing environment, home to a wonderful pristine eco-system. Your Captain will then turn up the speed to take you out into the harbor proper, where you will hear stories of WW2, Cyclone Tracy, Darwin's Naval history and the buildings of the Darwin City Seascape.
