Owner description: Outback Floatplane Adventures is the only way to see the Northern Territory! Designed by Matt Wright, National Geographic's 'Outback Wrangler', the Ultimate Outback Tour is a once in a lifetime experience that is designed to allow you to see all that the Northern Territory has to offer in one action packed adventure! AIRBOATS - HELICOPTERS - FLOATPLANES - SCENIC CRUISES. Suitable for everyone, this half day tour begins with a courtesy air-conditioned coach transfer to Darwin Airport, from where you will depart on a 30-minute scenic flight complete with a spectacular Floatplane landing on the waters of our remote lagoon. Sit back and relax as we cruise along the waterway enjoying a hearty breakfast or BBQ Barramundi lunch, encountering various wildlife along the way. Next, we whisk you away on a helicopter flight from the roof of our vessel, flying over the local wetlands and on to our off-road buggy. Touchdown and take off on a journey through the ancient rainforest canopies as we head down to the airboat. Of course we save the best until last, with our exhilarating ride aboard Gale Force, our state of the art airboat. Gliding over the wetlands and through the rainforest channels, getting up close and personal with big saltwater crocodiles. This experience ticks all the boxes, and being a half day long, action packed adventure, it's the perfect way to experience all that the Top End has to offer in the most exciting way possible!

When in Darwin don't miss this amazing adventure.
From wo to go it was fantastic!
Starting with Emma who piloted the float plane. A beautiful early morning scenic tour of Darwin & the perfect landing on the lagoon, followed by a relaxing cooked brekky while cruising the river with the friendliest crew.
Then came the hovercraft ride, checking out the Crocs sleeping on the river banks. Loved the speed ride. Topping off an already great tour was the helicopter ride. What a fantastic experience!! Just wish it could have been longer.
Thank you to one & all for a very enjoyable look & experience of Darwin! It's a must do!

From the friendly staff who booked our tour to the pick up and drop off at our front door - could not fault the day. Float plane out to boat, barramundi lunch - Yummy, tour of Sweets lagoon - teaming with wildlife, airboat tour of hard to get to waterways, helicopter flight for a Birdseye view of lagoon, termite moulds and wildlife and return to darwin in floatplane. Staff were exceptional, Lee with her infectious welcoming smile and delightful laugh, Steve our informative helicopter pilot, Emma our floatplane pilot - the take off and landing on lagoon was awesome, Dom our driver - most informative and to Matt - an amazing outback tour operator and so much fun in the airboat. Thank you the best tour ever!
