The tour was very well presented and host were very knowledgeable and clear to understand. The whole family really enjoyed the bombing of Darwin cruise. And would definitely go on another next time we come to Darwin From Mt Isa QLD and Wagga Wagga NSW

Enjoyed the cruise ànd the informative history of a dark moment of Australia's wartime history. Politicians and Senior Defence Officer's should take this cruise listen to some of the stupid decisions made in that era. We really enjoyed the skippers local knowledge and his humour when describing some of the events that happened over those terrible few days. Well done Skipper.

Informative presentation of Darwin’s WWII history by 2 experienced relational guides. Greatly enjoyed being in the boat to view historic sites which you would not see as easily on land. Thanks for the Anzac biscuits too!

The gentlemen were very knowledgeable! I learned a lot about the whole day of the bombing. It was a bit choppy water but they tried to minimize the spray. Great job!! I totally recommend this tour.
