About the Journey and our Vessels:

Sea Darwin has fast, open vessels with canopy cover.  We travel to the island at 25 knots, weather dependent, and we have clears to drop in the event of rain or sea spray.  In the many years that we have transversed the Timor Sea to the Tiwi Island, we've had glassy seas, we’ve dodged storms and we’ve ocean rafted across. At times we’ve been accompanied by dolphins, we’ve seen whales and we’ve had flying fish land in the boat. We’ve rescued a ghost net and had white horses gallop around the boat! It's been idyllic conditions, wet and wild, and everything in between.  But whatever the journey has been, those on board have always been on a mission. The mission has been to witness one of the iconic events in modern Australian history, the annual Tiwi Footy Grand Final and/ or to cast their eves over some of the nations most intriguing and evocative art work, all for sale for a fraction of the price charged in mainland art galleries.

Sea Darwin has the fastest boats, we’re a local company, we’re the most affordable option for travel to the Tiwi Islands Footy Final and we’ve a licensed bar on board.

Tickets from $249 pp and you can Book online or call 1300 065 022:  Terms and Conditions:
