Diving in Darwin can at times be limited, due to tides and strong currents. Diving is only possible during neep tides, usually 6 to 8 days per month. Darwin Harbour does have some interesting dive locations, especially the World War 2 and Cyclone Tracy wrecks and is actually designated as one of the top 10 dive locations in the world.
