On Monday 21 February 2022 join Sea Darwin for a very special sunset cruise to pay tribute to the lives lost on Darwin Harbour during the Bombing of Darwin and through the WW2 years.

Departing iconic Stokes Hill Wharf at 5pm we we will take a fast boat journey to the back of Darwin Harbour to visit the Catalina Flying Boat Base and the wreck site of Catalina A24-1.  As stories are told we'll cruise through the Harbour proper to the resting place of SS Zealandia and the USAT MEIGS.  And then, as day ends we’ll hover over the watery remains of the USS Peary taking time to pay our respects to all the Mariners who lost their lives, done in the most civilized way possible with a G&T sundowner in our hand. 

Your Sunset Commemoration Cruise includes:

  • 2.5 hour sunset cruise
  • Site Commentary by Dr Silvano Jung -  Archaeological Consultant
  • Canapes and a G & T Sundowner at sunset 

Additional drinks can be purchased on board.
