SeaLink Northern Territory
SeaLink Northern Territory connects remote communities and creates brilliant experiences for locals and tourists alike on our passenger ferries and bus services in the Top End.
Built especially for remote locations, the SeaLink NT ferries are capable of beach landings, carrying large numbers of passengers in comfort, and are all equipped with kiosks, toilets, air-conditioned cabins, and spacious outdoor decking.
SeaLink NT connects the Tiwi community to Darwin up to 4 days a week in the peak tourist season as well as offering visitors the opportunity to explore and experience the rich and wonderful art culture of the Tiwi Islands.
The SeaLink NT Mandorah ferry service runs up to 14 times a day and connects residents of the Cox Peninsula to Darwin by a fast and hassle-free ferry service. Wagait Beach, the Cox Country Club, and the Mandorah Jetty are all local and visitor hotspots for fishing, exploring, and just ‘getting out of town’.
Tours are available to Crab Claw Island Resort in Bynoe Harbour for an all-Australian seafood buffet, private charters can be booked to secluded beach and sandbars, and harbour cruises run every day for visitors to get their bearings as they arrive in Darwin.
