We really enjoyed the tour. John was informative, knowledgeable and value added with anecdotes and fresh information. Cruise was enjoyable. We would recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for a different perspective on an event which changed our nation.

This sunset cruise with fish and chips and a drink was very good value. The crew were very friendly and helpful. The fish and chips were freshly cooked and tasty. Plenty of time to take photos of the sunset.

We enjoyed a wonderful relaxed evening on the fish & chip sunset cruise. Cruise commentary was informative, food was delicious, sunset was fabulous with ideal viewing standing on a sandbar in the middle on the harbour. Highly recommend this sunset cruise.

How is it that Australians don't know the extent of the war coming to Australia!!! Months of bombings and great stories of Aust. and allied forces defending Darwin from constant bombings. A terrific range of story telling.

Hi Margaret, We're sorry that you were disappointed with the WW2 half day tour, but we can't agree about your pricing comments. For the cost of 50% of the tour, your entry to the Defence of Darwin Museum ($18) and the one hour cruise ($35)...More
