    What to Expect
    Make your own way to Stokes Hill Wharf to board your spacious catamaran for your sunset cruise.

    Sip a complimentary welcome drink of beer, sparkling wine or soda as you set sail on your 2.5-hour cruise (additional drinks available for purchase). Choose a seat on one of the large decks or inside the air-conditioned cabin, or sink into a beanbag chair on the bow.

    Take in the sights of Darwin’s harbor, city skyline and mangrove forests as they glow in the light of the sunset. Your captain and crew share stories about the history and wildlife of Darwin Harbour and the city. Near the bow of the boat, the crew tosses food into the water so that you can see the batfish come to the surface to feed. You may also spot queen fish, trevally, barramundi and sharks if you're lucky.

    Admire the colorful sunset as the sky turns shades of purple, orange and red. At dusk, the crew serves gourmet food platters to share. When booking, you can upgrade to add a 3-course buffet dinner with fresh local produce.

    Your tour ends after about 2.5 hours, returning you to the dock where you started.

    Having read that this boat does not wait for latecomers, we arrived super early. This meant standing for some time waiting to board. First impressions were disappointing. Dinner tables featured white tablecloths which I love, however these had been washed and possibly tumble
