Darwin Harbour Cruise, Darwin
We depart 4.30 sharp from the Mandorah Ferry Pontoon, Cullen Bay Marina, CULLEN BAY.
Our luxury and new sailing catamarans are over 10.5m long and 6.2m wide. They are family friendly and suitable for small children. Sailing on the harbour provides a great platform for nature viewing. Sail with the only Harbour certified Ecotourism Australia Ecotourism sailing business.
A sunset cruise with a difference - we do not follow the rest. We sail, we look for wildlife, we are small, exclusive. We cross from Fannie Bay where we will hoist our sails and make our way to one of Darwins mangrove lined estuaries to check a croc trap then sail back into the Harbour. We will then make our way to Fannie Bay We will enjoy Top End tastes of skewers of beef and crocodile, smoked barra local prawns, 2 salads with complimentary wine and mid strength beer.
BBQ of (home marinated) beef satay, chicken satay, cooked tiger prawns, piece local fish, potato salad, green salad, with bottled red/white wine and mid strength beer. (BYO other alcohol welcome, as we do not have a bar)

We thoroughly enjoyed the EcoSailing Sunset cruise, and would recommend it. All our expectations were met, and the sunset on the harbour was spectacular. The crew were great and the food was excellent. A terrific experience.

I have previously been on wonderful cruises with this company hence why I booked again to show off Darwin to interstate guests. However for the $500 I paid for the 4 of us the evening was dissapointing. Late departure had us waiting on the dock for almost an hour, service was disorganised and food was far from satisfying.

We really enjoyed the cruise, food and wine but some things need to improve. Firstly only 8 of us were having the full mealso we had to eat in front of them. It was a bit us and them. We were under the impression the whole cruise was the same for everybody. It was a but embarassing. The only other thing was the red wine was in bottles but definitely not bottled wine (maybe casked wine)

Both my girlfriend and I had a very enjoyable evening. Food and company were both great. Was particularly impressed on the way back - I saw some rubbish floating in the harbour (a pet hate), but did not want to say anything and cause a fuss. Skipper saw it, and then proceeded to turn boat around and pick it up. One of the few tours I think that match their words with their actions (Eco Friendly).

We enjoyed the cruise very much, the anti pasta nibbles were tasty, and the the BBQ, but I had a cooked prawn and it was very salty, so I couldn't eat it, and we requested rice for the cruise which was supplied, so everyone was very pleased about this. The trip was a little disappointing that we didn't go out to the croc trap, but mainly stayed around the harbour. Overall, it was a success
