Cruise around the marine and saltwater habitats of Darwin Harbour and surrounding saltwater country, relaxing or participating in research projects.
An adventure and wildlife experience all rolled into one - this cruise is a sunset odyssey for those with a spirit of adventure.
Leaving Stokes Hill Wharf at 4.00pm on a date especially picked around the lunar cycle, your cobwebs will be blown away as Darwin Harbour is left behind. With the warm breeze on your face and the smell of salt in the air, a fast boat ride will take you past historic Charles Point into Bynoe Harbour, arriving at remote Bare Sand Island, a key Australian nesting ground for Flatback and Olive Ridley turtles.
Explore the island with Team Turtle, learn about the turtles, the unique war history and Larrakia stories as you experience day turning to night with the backdrop of one of those famous Top End sunsets.
After twilight fades, Team Turtle will take you for a guided walk to witness the egg laying. For those who take this adventure late in the season you may witness the eruption of hatchlings from their home under the warm sand. A fast boat ride will get you back to Darwin, with memories that will last a life time.
Cruise price includes dinner, drink and qualified guides.
