Linda_E, July 2022
Great day, thank you Jeremy for taking us on the Darwin pub crawl. Our first stop Crab Claw Island was a great start. Beautiful beach and cold beers. Highlight was spotting the wildlife, buffolo, brumbies, crocodile and wild pigs. Lunch at the Darwin River pub was great, although a little plentiful for a lunch. And thank you to Simon and Jeremy for keeping us company while waiting for cab back to Darwin. Best day ever....

Trina_W, May 2022
Best day ever! What an unbelievable experience! From pick up to drop off the adventure was top notch. Our pilot Jeremy made the day even better with his down to earth, friendly and professional nature. Every pub had its own unique twist with Goat Island and the infamous King Kai, one you can not miss! An adventure like no other I’ve ever seen or heard about, this is a must do!!! Such a great day out that we’ll be reminiscing about for years to come!
Experience of a lifetime
David_C, June 2021
As a first time traveller to Darwin I was looking forward to soaking up everything the top end had to offer. I also love a beer and meeting people so when my wife told me she had purchased a heli pub crawl I was pretty keen to give it a go. From the moment we met our friendly cab driver Nic I knew we were in for a great day -?our pilot Mick was just fantastic- great sense of humour - informative- and a perfect ambassador for top end tourism - stopped at crab claw island , Darwin river pub, goat island and noonamah pub - all terrific spots with something unique to offer whether it was food, view, characters or just the ice cold beer - the views of Darwin and surrounding area from the helicopter were marvellous- I would recommend this trip to anyone - costs a few bob but worth every cent
