The cruise was lovely from start to finish. I would use them again. The sky was beautiful to look at as the sun set. Bring your good camera!

Darwin Harbour Sunset Cruises - With Ala Carte Seafood Plater for 2 (our own add on), and Ice cream. The bus Driver (David) is also the guide on this cruise. Easy going guy, is funny and candid.
