Very little cruising
Felicity_S, Aug 2022
The cruise was very short we didn’t see much of Darwin and we just sat moored for 1-1/2 hours and then travelled very slowly back to dock.
A magical last night in Darwin
kellykgreen, Aug 2022
We had the most wonderful evening on this sunset cruise. It was a magical way to spend our last night in Darwin. The meals were fantastic and they ensured that as non seafood eaters that our needs were met and there were plenty of options for us. The service was excellent. I would highly recommend this cruise to visitors to Darwin.
A little disappointing
jennifer_m, Aug 2022
A little disappointing Too long, first hour was interesting as we could see Darwin from the harbour but the cruise itself was far too long.
Worth while doing

Good value cruise
BARBARA_U, July 2022
The excellent service. Quality of food and drinks. We were on the top deck which I recommend for the views. We were surprised that we had table service for the duration so we didn’t have to trek down steps to the bar. A lovely night.

Sunset Cruise
Fraser_W, June 2022
Family visiting from Perth, booked sunset cruise, there was no sun out & it started raining but staff moved everyone to tables inside. Staff waiting on the tables were great, did a fantastic job. The only negative was a lady telling everyone to be quiet while the commentary was on, she was very rude!
Dolphins in harbour,...
