    There is a good chance that I might be working in Darwin during the month of April, although we will be working 12 hour shifts 7 days a week, (I am considering taking my dive gear), if there is, I will be working night shift which is usually 6 to 6 or 7 to 7 so we would like to be able to dive right after work a couple of days a week, at least that's the idea. I don't think boat diving would be an option due to our need to get some sleep, but maybe a 1 tank dive could work, if there is an operator that would be willing to do this.
    I thought I would see if any Scubaboarders have any info on diving in Darwin. Like favorite dive shops, dive sites, diving conditions at this time of the year, water temp, etc. etc. I like to hear about it.

    Thanks

    I believe diving in Darwin is a tough gig - they get large tides and can only dive at specific times each month.

    Best to contact the shops there directly and you'll likely have to do a search - a quick google found Welcome to Diving in the Top End with a funky web site and this info...doesn't sound promising with your tight schedule maybe...
