Darwin Harbour Cruises

Cruises, Sailing and Water Tours

To appreciate Darwin’s pristine and expansive harbour, step aboard the 25m multi-level catamaran, the ‘Charles Darwin’ and enjoy a delicious Territory-style buffet on a Sunset Dinner Cruise. If you prefer, you can simply relax with a drink on the Bridge Deck on a Sunset Cruise, with beverages, platters and snacks available to purchase at an additional cost.

The ‘Charles Darwin’ plus the beautifully restored schooner ‘Tumlaren’ are both available for private hire and are perfect for weddings, events and charters.

Darwin Harbour Cruises have been operating cruises for many years, making them one of the longest running operators in Top End cruising, and have entertained visitors and locals alike.
