I took my grandchildren on this tour. We didn't realise how expensive it was until we lined up for tickets and would have pulled out except they would have been disappointed. What we saw was interesting but not good value for the money.

We didn't see nothing , we lost 1 hour and 40 $ each. We drive 3/4 on the road and 1/4 on the water. They say you can see crocs but it's a lie don't go . It's a advise.

Love, love, loved the duck tour. Was a terrific way to check out the city and then go out on the water. Kids and parents had a great time, kids loved having a drive, they can't stop talking about it. Would definitely recommend.

Great cruise. We did the "Splash & Dash". Our captain & our tour guide Sharon were good fun & very informative. Good to see Darwin from the harbour. Such a pity you can't swim in the most inviting water! Good value.

My partner and two young children done the 1&1/4 hr trip around Darwin . It was a lot of fun especially whilst cruising around the harbour . The tour guide onboard was very knowledgeable and fun. Would recommend to all family's.

This "Splash & Dash" tour in an amphibious vehicle is an excellent way to see Darwin from land and sea, and at a good price. The commentary from the driver and guide is excellent. After seeing a number of the city highlights you go down...More
