Very informative. Also great fun out on the boat which was expertly handled on choppy water. I would recommend it for all ages.

Hi Deborah, thankyou for taking the time to post a review. We're pleased that you enjoyed the Bombing of Darwin Cruise. We do like it when the harbour provides us with smooth, sheltered water (which is most of the time), but when the wind does get up our crew are Master Mariners who can ensure passenger comfort.
