Overview
Travel in luxury on a Darwin Harbour cruise in a three-deck catamaran with air-conditioned indoor seating, an outdoor top deck, and optional dinner service. Your crew gives commentary packed with humor and local history while you take in views traveling from Stokes Hill Wharf to Fannie Bay and back.
What to Expect
Your cruise starts from Dock 3 at Stokes Hill Wharf. Spot the large white umbrellas and meet your crew. Boarding begins 20 minutes prior to the cruise departure time. Your three-deck catamaran tour boat, the Charles Darwin, has air-conditioned seats inside and outdoor seating on the top deck. 

Depart Stokes Hill Wharf and travel along the Esplanade past Larrakeyah Naval Barracks, Cullen Bay, and Fannie Bay. Your captain may change the route according to weather and tidal conditions.

While you cruise around Darwin Harbour, listen to onboard commentary from the crew about the history of Darwin, including stories about Cyclone Tracey and the bombing of the city. Keep an eye out for crocodiles, dolphins, turtles, and dugongs. Purchase drinks and snacks on board or opt for a buffet dinner.

See the sunset, and then Darwin’s illuminated skyline.

Your sunset cruise ends with a drop-off back at Stokes Hill Wharf.

Twilight cruise on Darwin Harbour

An excellent cruise in beautiful weather around Darwin Harbour, Dinner was buffet style and of excellent quality and plenty of it. My 14 year old granddaughter and a Japanese exchange student also enjoyed the experience.
