The half day tour includes Darwin city pick up and drop offs. The CBD includes the Darwin City area as far out to Stuart Park and Skycity. Please contact Sea Darwin on 1300 065 022 if you are located just outside these boundaries, as pick up outside the CBD will depend on numbers on the day.

The pick up and drop off is an inclusion only for the half day tour. For those doing the Australia’s Frontline cruise at 11am, the departure point is Dock 1 at Stokes Hill Wharf.
