About Darwin Adventure Boats
Matt Wright has taken fun and adventure to the next level, by combining our custom built V8 Airboat with our NEW supercharged Jetboat! Your epic journey commences as our Jetboat transports you from the Stokes Hill Wharf across Darwin Harbour (at some serious speed) towards our city’s scenic mangroves. With a few spins along the way, your heart is sure to be pumping! Once you reach the mangroves, you will jump aboard our Airboat where you will cruise along the mudflats and take in the beautiful surrounds. Enjoy the local birdlife and keep an eye out in the waters below for sharks, crocs, dolphins, mud crabs, even stingrays. Then it’s time to REALLY get your adrenaline pumping. You’ll be left smiling from ear to ear as you spin and glide across the mud, powered by that huge V8 engine! Once you’re all muddied up, you will jump back into the jetboat to soar across the Timor Sea, with picturesque views of the Darwin Harbour in plain site to end your epic journey.

What a fabulous day we had, no doubt one of the best tours I have experienced. Visited 5 Pub, all different and met some very quirky characters. Great information from our pilot Dan and a pleasure to spend the day with him.

Fun trip out on Darwin Adventure Boats. Loved the air boat more than the jet boat but thats just personal opinion. Didn't get too wet on the jet boat but be prepared in case you do.

The air boat was great but we weren’t contacted to be told the jet boat was broken so we didn’t get our full experience. The captain said someone would contact me for a partial refund but I haven’t heard from anyone or received any money back
