Obviously tides like this affect all sorts of things around Darwin. If you want to launch a boat here, it probably pays to know where the water will be.
More information on Darwin Boat Ramps - there are about half a dozen places to launch a small boat in the Darwin/Palmerston area.
The Jetty area is a popular place with people coming to watch the tides and the sunset in a cool breeze.
There is a takeaway food van here on Saturday evening and it's hard to find a more pleasant place to spend a few hours.
THE Nightcliff Jetty and walkway gardens also provide the venue for the annual Seabreeze Festival
