Awesome adventure

Fantastic trip on both the air boat and jet boat 👍🏻 Only one word of advice- wear swimwear and preferably dark swim wear as by the time we finished we were drenched and covered in mud flecks 😂

Very Disappointing

Way overpriced for what the experience turned out to be. Hugely disappointing unfortunately. In my opinion experience fell short of description.

An Amazing Experience
Laraine_R

I expected to have fun on the Jetboat & Airboat Ride... and l certainly did - racing through the harbour, bouncing over wake and doing sharp 360 turns which caused us to get splashed. The airboat was slower but a great ride. What l DIDN'T expect was to learn about the importance of mangoves on the water's edge, see different birds, check the water for animal life (unfortunately the stingray wouldn't co-operate and come to my side of the boat), see a crocodile trap and learn about how and why they are used and have a chance to taste an oyster from a mangrove branch that l thought was dead! I went alone, but judging by the delight expressed so often by the young children (about 6 and 3) in front of me, l am sure a whole family could enjoy this activity. I would recommend it to anyone. Our driver/guide Rowdy was great. Laraine

Honest company

Can't express enough how excellent this company is. We had a boat breakdown and staff and owner did well above to minimise the stress and gave a immediate refund with no hassle. In times like these they stepped up and did the right thing straight away. Will rebook this trip next we visit Darwin

Skim across the mud

This was our first time on and Airboat and it want be the last. Just amazing how little water or mud it can skim across. Highly recommend this little tour, get to see some wildlife and get to experience a burn out or 2.

Way way too expensive

While my husband, daughter and I enjoyed the boat ride it was way way too expensive. It cost us $558.75 for 3 adults for 1 hour. Definitely not worth the money

Must do when in Darwin! We had a wonderful time learning about crocodiles, fish, birds, mudflats and mangroves. We went into places you can’t go at low tide on a normal boat. We saw 2 crocodiles which was a bonus.

If my son Adam liked the ride then it must be good. The driver Lee was very informative about the area and the wildlife. Should of taken some water with us as it was hot. The ride back to the jetty is a little boring but overall it is very good. Learnt a lot about the local wildlife and the culture of the NT people. Loved it
