What You Can Expect

Darwin Sunset Dinner Cruise Aboard a Traditional Ketch

Darwin Sunset Dinner Cruise

Board your two-masted ketch, a traditional fishing boat, at Stokes Hill Wharf and set out on your Darwin sunset dinner cruise. Enjoy a 4-course dinner, served at a shaded outdoor table in the intimate setting of this smaller sailing vessel. 

Cast your gaze over the coastline while your expert crew shares informative commentary as you sail out of the harbor. During harbour, be sure to keep your camera on hand to capture the tropical colors of a classic Top End sunset.

To start dinner you are served a selection of tasty homemade dips and delectable seafood appetizers. Choose from banana prawns, Coffin Bay oysters or hot-smoked Spanish mackerel — the boat’s signature dish. Select the fresh catch of the day or rib-eye beef steak (Scotch fillet) for your main course, accompanied by a selection of breads and salads. Espresso coffee or tea accompany homemade dessert. 

Enjoy beverages purchased from the bar on board, or feel free to bring your own; the crew will provide you with glasses and ice at no extra cost. 

After you’ve had your fill of amazing food and sunset views, your Darwin cruise ends at the wharf.

Lovely relaxed cruise to experience the beautiful sunset in Darwin over the water. Dinner was good with plenty to eat. You can BYO or buy drinks onboard.
Staff friendly, we recommend this tour to experience the sunset and the opportunity to snap great shots of the sunset, Darwin city, beaches and casino at night.

An amazing night of beautiful scenery, good food, great service. We would do it again!
The only suggestion for improvement is on top deck we could not hear all the comentry.

Beautful evening out in the water. Staff all great, as was the food. Fresh, high quality fish snd seafood plus a delicious dessert. Plenty to ea t and a bonus to take our own drinks on board. The ketch was the best choice of the sunset cruises. Smaller, more genuine vessel.

Several people recommended that we should do a Sunset cruise in Darwin and this one was the one I selected. Not the cheapest, but it sounded good. I booked online, then realised I had made a mistake with the dat so followed with a phone call - Matt had no problems sorting this out for me very efficiently.

The loading procedure was efficient and the staff seated us quickly, with water immediately as it was very warm. Drinks came out straight away with delicious dips. We were soon enjoying the cooler sea air and our Coffin Bay oysters, king prawns, house smoked mackerel and salads. Our main course was simply prepared fish or steak - we had the fish which was excellent. Dessert of a tasty cheesecake followed with tea or coffee. We were very satisfied with the food - simple, tasty and ample.

Our skipper provided all the commentary we needed, found some dolphins for us, and an excellent music playlist - what a delightful evening!
