Itinerary Enjoy the spectacle of a tropical sunset in an extraordinarily remote location on this eco-certified turtle tour!
This odyssey through the Arafura Sea is for those with a spirit of adventure. Leaving Stokes Hill Wharf at 4pm your cobwebs will be blown away as Darwin Harbour is left in the wake of the Snubfin. With the warm breeze on your face and the smell of salt in the air, your holiday will be surreal as you skim over turquoise waters on the way to the nesting ground for flatback and olive ridley turtles.
Your journey will take you past historic Charles Point Lighthouse into Bynoe Harbour, arriving at a remote beach in time for the sun set. Explore the island with Team Turtle, learn about the ancient mariners who inhabit these waters, experience day turning to night as you walk the bare sand.
Back on board your bento meal will delight, and then as day has turned to night, Team Turtle will conduct a guided walk to witness the egg laying ritual. For those who take this adventure late in the season you may have the privilege of witnessing the eruption of baby turtles from their home under the warm sand. A fast boat ride will get you back to Darwin, with memories that will last a life time.

It was absolutely teriffic. I didn't think so at first but as the evening went on it was clear that the organisers went out of their way to make it a really great experience. Thank you; it was.

I had a great time fulfilling a lifelong wish to see turtles nesting and tiny turtle hatchlings race down the beach for the sea! It was such a privilege to also have the benefit of watching the turtle researchers in their committed work, and to be able to ask questions of Mick Guinea, a veteran turtle researcher. All this with the backdrop of a breathtaking sunset. An unforgetable experience. Many many thanks.
