Diana and Eduard, from NSW

"The sunset fish 'n chips cruise was a beautiful way to end our day in Darwin. It was well organised and informative, with nature throwing in a pod of frolicking dolphins, sea eagles and a gorgeous sunset. The boat was clean and comfortable and the fresh fish and chips, delish! It was a highlight of our NT visit. We would definitely do it again."

Hold onto your hats!

Hold onto your hats!

All aboard for a sunset adventure cruise on Darwin Harbour! Leaving Stokes Hill Wharf with a complementary refreshment in your hand, we’ll potter out from Kitchener Bay stopping to draw your attention to the magnificent expanse of Darwin Harbour and its fascinating landmarks. And then, hold onto your hats!

Delicious fish & chips

Delicious fish & chips

We’ll leave other boats in our wake as we take you up close to the sights and sounds of the Darwin city seascape. On arrival at Cullen Bay you’ll be treated to stories of this part of town while the crew picks up your dinner of deliciously fresh, local, wild caught fish with chips and tender calamari rings from award-winning La Beach restaurant.

Occasionally conditions dictate that fish & chips are picked up from Frying Nemo at Tipperary Waters.

Experience the harbour

Experience the harbour

As you eat your dinner on board, we’ll use our local knowledge to take you to the best place to enjoy the delightfully warm breeze, exquisite tropical sunset and harbour full of intrigue. The tide, wind, weather and season will be considered as the Captain turns the boat in a particular direction.

You may experience a walk on the Fannie Bay sandbar or enjoy your meal amongst a pod of frolicking dolphins or dugong. Sometimes we may visit the Sadgroves bird sanctuary and other times we'll just cruise around the glistening harbour, taking in nature's extraordinarily-coloured sky at this time of day - it's like an artwork!
