“Great night”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

This was a fantastic night. Boarded at 4.30 for a 3 hour sunset cruise. A total of 14 on board including 2 crew. We had our 8 &9 year olds with us. Really enjoyed the cruise it was relaxing and interesting. Unfortunately it was a bit overcast so didn't make for a great sunset but it didn't matter. There was plenty of food and we bought our own drinks but you could have the package that included drinks. Just a really enjoyable experience and a highlight for us.

“Perfect evening cruise”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

We went with a couple of friends and had an amazing evening cruising the harbour in a catamaran. There were 16 people on our boat plus 2 staff.
Staff were friendly and the boat was clean and well maintained. It was a little expensive for a byo cruise at $100 each and the food was pretty basic:
snacks= jatz, cabanossi, cheddar cubes, carrot/celery sticks and cream cheese dip
Dinner= 2 small meat skewers, small fish parcel and bowl of lettuce.
I was a little disappointed with the dinner portions and was still hungry afterwards. But overall it was a magnificent evening and these were only minor issues. I would recommend it as a must do if visiting darwin in dry season.

“Great host, good afternoon on the water”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Jav was our host, he was great company and very knowledgeable about the harbour and surrounding environment. Pit the wind was not a bit stronger for a better sailing experience but we can not control these things.
