Darwin Sunset Dinner Cruise Aboard a Traditional Ketch
Ride into the sunset and enjoy tropical breezes during a 2.5-hour Darwin dinner cruise aboard a traditional fishing ketch. Enjoy freshly shucked Coffin Bay oysters or sink your teeth into succulent Northern Territory Banana prawns followed by your choice of fresh-caught fish or Scotch fillet steak in a 4-course meal provided by the onboard chef. Drinks are available for purchase at the bar, or bring your own.
What to Expect
Board your two-masted ketch, a traditional fishing boat, at Stokes Hill Wharf and set out on your Darwin sunset dinner cruise. Enjoy a 4-course dinner, served at a shaded outdoor table in the intimate setting of this smaller sailing vessel. 

Cast your gaze over the coastline while your expert crew shares informative commentary as you sail out of the harbor. During harbour, be sure to keep your camera on hand to capture the tropical colors of a classic Top End sunset.

To start dinner you are served a selection of tasty homemade dips and delectable seafood appetizers. Choose from banana prawns, Coffin Bay oysters or hot-smoked Spanish mackerel — the boat’s signature dish. Select the fresh catch of the day or rib-eye beef steak (Scotch fillet) for your main course, accompanied by a selection of breads and salads. Espresso coffee or tea accompany homemade dessert. 

Enjoy beverages purchased from the bar on board, or feel free to bring your own; the crew will provide you with glasses and ice at no extra cost. 

After you’ve had your fill of amazing food and sunset views, your Darwin cruise ends at the wharf.

No Senior's Concession. Thought it reasonably priced & worth the money anyway.
