Overview

Darwin Harbour Cruises have two luxuriously restored vessels, the “Charles Darwin” and the “Tumlaren”. We offer a wide range of harbour cruises to suit all budgets and tastes. The “Charles Darwin” is a 25-metre tri-level Catamaran, she has been lovingly restored and now offers a range of harbour cruises and all the facilities of a floating restaurant. The delicious meals are prepared on board by the top quality staff and only the freshest Australian Seafood and local products are used. The “Tumlaren” is a 20-metre schooner that has also been restored to immaculate condition. The “Tastes of the Territory” Sunset Cruise includes complimentary sparkling wine at Sunset and delicious light Territorian style tasting platters. Our experienced crew share interesting and informative commentary on the sites and rich history of Darwin Harbour, Cyclone Tracey and WWII. Both vessels are available for private charter.

Had a ball tonight with my family. A great way to relax and fantastic food and wine. The service was really good and the staff very friendly. Perhaps some live music or something like a quiz or bingo for those who were interested?
