Your Sail

Let us show you why we are the longest running and friendliest Harbour Cruise in Darwin! A warm welcome from the friendly Captain and Crew as you board the Spectacular “Spirit of Darwin.” On boarding make yourself at home on the comfortable bean bag chairs on the bow and soak up the last of the day’s sunshine, alternatively have a seat with a view on our spacious decks, ready to set sail on a 2.5 hour cruise showcasing the magnificent tropical Darwin Harbour.

As the Sun sets watch the sky light up in magical colours reflecting off the water and showcasing the coast line of Darwin in a way you've never seen before!

Enjoy a great local buffet meal prepared with fresh produce, the perfect accompaniment to the spectacular sunset view! This unique experience features amazing fish feeding from the bow of the “Spirit of Darwin,” where the Bat-fish of the Darwin Harbour meet the Boat to be fed. The Bat-fish come right to the surface within view and awe of all passengers on board to show off their magnificent selves! Some tours have been lucky enough to spot Queen Fish, Trevally, Barramundi and even Sharks! This experience is exclusive to the Spirit of Darwin’s Sunset Dinner Cruise’s Guests.
