Destination: Darwin's Sandbar

Visit Darwin's Sandbar with Sea Darwin

The fluttering of dragon flies reminds us that the dry season is just around the corner. Dry season for Sea Darwin means memorable visits to Darwin’s Sandbar. On select days and evenings through out the year the sandbar is open for business, and for those who want to do Darwin differently the sandbar is the perfect location for weddings, parties or anything! Not that you have to organise a special event, because if the saltwater spirits allow, we visit the sandbar on our Fish’n Chip cruise just so that our guests can have first hand experience that the sea temperature in Darwin Harbour is really around 31 degrees.

In looking back over the years we’ve transported some very special guests, and we’ve been the chariot for awesome events on this little strip of sand that pokes it’s head out of Darwin Harbour every now and then. There have been some wonderful weddings with specially made “rising tide” stubby coolers, lots of cricket matches, hen’s nights, corporate events and beach picnics. We’ve taken ladies in stilettos (not a good idea), men in tuxedos (with the bottom of their pants rolled up) backpackers in bikinis (the Captain’s favourite) and international grey nomads who’ve stripped off their clothes. Ask that Captain about that one! Whatever the occasion has been, fond memories of Darwin and our beautiful and pristine harbour have been made.

Destination: Darwin's Sandbar

So in moving to this year, Darwin’s sandbar will continue to be destination of choice for those who like to go places where you think things that you like to think. It will be a destination of choice for those who would like their own private island for an itty bitty chapter in their life. It will be a place that provides front row seats for our amazing Top End sunset; it will be a pitch for the cricket match to end all cricket matches, it might even be a place where proposals are made, and where decisions are decided.

If you think Darwin’s sandbar is a place where you might like to visit, then contact us on 130 0 065 022 or [email protected], and we’ll discuss the options. Similarly, if you’re visiting Darwin and just want a casual visit, send us a message to see when our Sunset Fish’n Chip cruise might be calling in to Darwin’s sandbar.
