Our son loved been given the chance to drive the boat and a great photo opportunity for parents. The commentary was good and we were lucky to see a pod of dolphins for quite a while. The small tour through the city is OK and the boat component gives you are good look at the harbour. Even though I think... More

We took the 75 minute tour. My husband and I thought that this was an average tour, was nothing exciting.. We sat at the back of the bus and couldn't really hear what was being said. So the kids got bored and we had to entertain them with our own food! My daughter did get to drive the "boat" but... More

This is an amphibian vehicle adapted for the road. Originally American was narrowed to fit our roads. After a little tour of Darwin with an interesting and amusing commentary we make a splash into Darwin Harbour. The tour around the Harbour is informative and so comfortable it is hard to believe you had just come off land! Then out of... More

We know darwin pretty well but decided on this tour with our toddler, who we thought would get a kick out of a bus turning into a boat... And we weren't wrong! The tour guides take you through some historical parts of the city with some interesting commentary, then all of a sudden you're driving down the pier and cruising... More

Did this trip over the weekend and really enjoyed it! Lots of info given but still time to sit back and relax and take in the scenery. A bit bumpy on the road but fine once in the water, family loved it and the young tour guide was excellent with the kids!

Had a few relatives arrive from Sydney & have wanted to take my son on this tour for some time so finally did it over the long weekend, This is a great idea to show a bit of Darwin & see it from another perspective (in the water) my only issue with it was it lacked enthusiasm from the "host"...

Relatives came to Darwin and took the kids to the Duck About Tour which they had been looking forward to for a long time. There was not much commentary and very little information about the area such as bombing of Darwin seeing as they took us really near there. Could have had a lot more humour and interaction with the... More
