We went as a party of 4 on Cape Adieu dinner harbour cruise at the end of September. The venue, food and crew service was fabulous. Topped off by a beautiful top-end sunset. I would recommend the experience to everyone.

We had a great evening on board the Cape Adieu sunset cruise. We were on the top deck which is under shade. Food was great and alcohol reasonably priced. Our only quibble was that the commentary could have been more detailed.

We recently had a family holiday in Darwin for 7 nights. I researched online the harbor dinner cruises available and due to all positive reviews for Cape Adieu I chose this one. It was a wonderful experience, the food was fresh, delicious and plentiful. The sunset was beautiful as well. We had our 6 year old son with us and he enjoyed exploring all the decks. Highly recommend Cape Adieu

It was a beautiful night. The sunset was special. There was plenty of food. The oysters and prawns were plentiful and yummy. Both the fish and steak were also tasty. For the cruise and dinner, a fair and reasonable price. We even were even treated to "full frontal" of a local Darwin fisherman, who happened to be boating by. It could only happen in Darwin.

We, a group of six (age 17-67) were lucky enough to book 1 July - Territory Day - for our dinner cruise. It was very impressive for our visitors from Canberra to experience the Harbour,the great seafood and firework displays all in one night. The seafood was very fresh, flavoursome and the threadfin fish was exquisite as a main. We would all highly recommend Cape Adieu Sunset Cruise at any time

We loved this cruise. The food was lovely, in ample quantities, and we were able to BYO without corkage. Our waitress was friendly, efficient and managed all the tables in our section beautifully. One table at a time was invited to the buffet so there was no need to wait in line.
The length of the cruise was perfect, allowing for a relaxed dinner, and the boat had real charm. Highly recommended.

The Dinner cruise was a great experience. All the crew were very professional and polite. They went out of their way to ensure that my wife was catered for, with a dairy allergy. We did advise this in the booking, however, the message did not get through. However, they did a wonderful job accommodating us. Over all it was a great experience. we would recommend this cruise to others.

A very enjoyable evening, the crew could not be faulted, the food was great,
overall a very worthwhile trip
If it had not been for your attendance at the markets we would have perhaps not known or bothered booking
perhaps the only downside was the time we were out on the water after dinner things were quiet, perhaps because of the small amount of people on board

We had a very pleasant evening aboard the Cape Adieu, weather good for sailing, gentle breeze for most of the night. The food supplied on board was excellent & ample for even the biggest appetite. We brought BYO drinks, but selection on board was ok. The only improvement to the cruise would be to have a bit more commentary, for 1st time visitors to Darwin a bit more history would have been good.
