Darwin Sunset Dinner Cruise Aboard a Traditional Ketch

33 Reviews

  • Location: Darwin, Australia
  • Duration: 3 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 6170CASDC
Darwin is famous for its lush tropical climate, outdoor activities and fresh seafood. This 3-hour dinner cruise brings these elements together with an intimate 4-course meal on a sailboat. A northern Australia sunset serves as a backdrop to an intimate meal featuring wild seafood appetizers, rich entrees and homemade dessert. Freshly shucked Coffin Bay oysters, anyone?
At Stokes Hill Wharf, board a traditional fishing ketch–a boat with two masts–that has crossed the oceans. Smaller than other dinner cruise vessels, this ketch allows you to enjoy cruising and dining in an intimate setting. You'll be greeted by a friendly and informative crew member to show you to your seats at an outdoor table. Under the comfort of a shaded overhang, sit back and soak up the views of the Darwin coast as you sail out of the harbor.

Begin your 4-course dinner with a selection of tasty homemade dips, followed by the Northern Territory's freshest seafood. Savor hearty banana prawns, hot-smoked Spanish mackerel (the boat’s signature dish) or sample freshly shucked Coffin Bay oysters. For your main course, you’ll choose from a scotch fillet steak or the wild fish catch of the day, accompanied by a selection of salads and breads. To finish, you’ll be served a delicious homemade dessert and your choice of espresso coffee or tea.

You are welcome to bring your own drinks aboard; the staff will be happy to provide you with glasses, ice and eskies (coolers) at no extra cost. There is also a bar on board where you can purchase drinks.

While enjoying your meal, you’ll hear occasional commentary from your hosts about the sights that you pass on Darwin’s shores. You’ll want to have your camera ready for the spectacular sunset as you cruise through the tropical air of northern Australia.

After three hours cruising off the Darwin coastline, you’ll be returned to the dock.

A Brilliant end to an amazing holiday. All of us 11 people in our group from QLD commented on how we couldn't have ended the holiday in a better way than cruising with this amazing group of people on this beautiful boat. The food was out of this world, the crew were funny, the Captain was wonderful and the scenery and sunset viewing was SPECTACULAR!!!! A MUST for all visiting Darwin.

If you love seafood and a cruise on the bay at sunset, this is for you... we took a friend who loves prawns and she was in heaven...
They do a longish trip and everyone gets to take photos of the famous sunsets... only thing I felt it was just maybe a tad long... about half an our less would have been perfect.
