My whole family enjoyed a great cruise out around the harbour, seeing dolphins and fish, a beautiful evening with a cloudy sunset at a relaxing cruising pace. The only disappointing thing was the skipper flicking his cigarette butt into the harbour before he got on the boat to leave, and a group of guests smoking at the back of the... More

We chose to do an afternoon cruise - I can only imagine the sunset cruise being more spectacular. The boat was very clean and spacious. Our was 4 hours along the coast of Darwin and the owner of the boat took time to tell us about the local flora and fauna - which I really enjoyed. As we cruised around... More

Clear blue Darwin skies, calm waters, nearly 3 hours blissfully sailing in light breezes on the Arafura Sea. Relaxing, with maybe 20 others, largely locals with their family visitors. From 4pm till 7pm one afternoon in the school break, it was a delightful family activity. I loved reclining with nothing better to do than catch the breezes. My 12 year... More

We booked through red balloon and it was easy to get our preferred date. We saw flying fish and dolphins, and the commentary about the harbour was great. Arrive early to get a good spot, you can sit undercover or on the nets out front. Nibbles were lovely but we were the only ones staying for dinner so we ate... More

This is a 10 day cruise seeing and experiencing the Kimberley from the water. Three highlights were the helicopter flight to Mitchell Falls, going through the Horizontal Falls, and sailing close to Montgomery Reef and seeing the wildlife there. The cabins were spacious, clean and comfortable and made up every day. The crew could not do enough to help especially... More

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... More

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,... More
