We loved the Sunset Fish and Chip cruise. The staff were lovely, couldn't do enough for us, and very knowledgeable about the area. The fish and chips were lovely. All the different areas the cruise took us to were great so we got to see a lot of the coastline and harbour that we hadn't seen. I would recommend it... More

Was a nice trip on the ocean hugging coast and dinner of fish and chips was good too. Enjoyable and relaxing couple of hours that went really quickly. Would recommend for families to.

What can I say? Bloody amazing! Trip around to Cullen Bay departing from Stokes Hill Wharf. Fish and Chips along the way with a tour of the mangroves off Francis Bay, then off to watch the sunset. Thank you so much for an awesome experience.

The sunset fish and chip cruise should probably have more emphasis on the "fast boat" and less on the "fish and chips". Great staff, looking after everybody from start to finish, and establishing a very friendly atmosphere on the boat. A very tasty bubbly to start, which I was hanging on to during the "fast boat" component of the trip... More

90 minute trip on a fast boat from Stokes Hill Wharfe. Excellent staff that are there to please - Jim and Georgia. Great commentary about the Wharfe and the area. A whizz around to Cullen bay to collect yummy fish and chips served piping hot on the boat with a selection of sauces (ketchup, tartare etc) plus wine/beer - one... More

We took their last tour of the calendar year and it immensely exceeded our expectations. It is not a tour for everyone, but we loved it. The biologist and apprentice educated us on sea turtles on the way to the island. They served us a good meal while we waited for the sun to set. We saw sea turtles coming... More

Our trip left 15 mins late and we only just made a good spot for sunset set. It seemed to be a boat trip to pick up fish and chips which was interesting enough but there wasn't much of a "tour" to it. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Hi Louise, Thanks for your review. It is always a challenge for us when customers are late for boarding, and ordinarily if the decision is made to wait then we make up the time at the other end. I believe you cruised with us on the evening of the late rain, so on that night the Captain had nature to... More

A friend and I booked in for the Sunset Fish and Chips Cruise. We stupidly read the start time incorrectly so were very thankful that the Captain (didn't get his name) and Ella waited for us, with the rest of the passengers. (Note: read the instructions so you're on time : D ) We headed out onto the water and... More

Thanks for your review Abs0007. This was absolutely not the experience we usually provide for our guests, but nature dictated! We appreciate your tip about the start time, as the sunset waits for no-one and it is important that we get away on time. Thanks for coming out with us - maybe you could come back one day and have...

My son in law organised a small group boat cruise around the Darwin Harbour. I was a little uncertain about going in the first instance. Had the greatest of times, the tour guide was very interesting and informative. We had 60 year old people to 2 years of age in our group and everyone enjoyed the experience. Would recommend this...

Thanks Gardensrfun1 for your review, and thankyou for complimenting our guide and our company. We agree that the crocodile dip is a great experience. We try and "do different" and we honour local, so the croc dip is a way of introducing visitors to something uniquely Territorian, and at the same time supports a local supplier, Darwin Fish Market. Hopefully... More

This is a special tour that only operates on the full moon as this is when the turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. It is also the time when the eggs hatch and the baby turtles make a dash to the sea. We were lucky enough to see both things happen. This is a professional run operation with a... More
