Such a beautiful experience to go for a cruise on Darwin Harbour after a stormy afternoon. The seas were calm, the sky was a 100 shades of grey, the fish and chips were great, the welcome drink was very welcome, the take-home stubby coolers and cups were a great touch, and you couldn't ask for nicer guides. The seats were a bit wet from the earlier storm but this is Darwin in the build-up and it just added to the authenticity of this experience. Thoroughly recommend this if you want to see Darwin from the sea.

This cruise was excellent. Rob, our guide was really informative and had lots of stories to tell from his own experiences and those of others. We initially wanted to do just a Harbour Cruise but this gave us the best of both worlds. The boat was comfortable (even when the wind picked up) and spotlessly clean. Highly recommended.

Great hosts, beautiful scenery and weather. We also got a bonus as the navy was heading out to sea today.

We visited in October 2018 and we thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. It was great value and we really enjoyed spending the evening on the water, exploring the Darwin waters. 100% recommended. Lovely family run, laid back cruise. We were given some lovely stubby holders, which as tourists, we still love!

Cheers Roison, It's a wonderful thing that our stubby coolers are finding a use on the other side of the world. Thankyou so much for your kind review and for tracking us down.

Cheers Susan, you must have been on one of the last tours pre-COVID. We've emerged now and getting back in to the swing of it. We appreciate your review, and so glad that you thought the cruise and RFDS combo experience was excellent.
