What can we provide with our cruises
Our specially designed tourism catamaran Kuru, provides an enjoyable way to experience Darwin harbour. This unique harbour experience allows you to sit back and enjoy cool sea breezes, precious time with family, friends, work colleagues and your work clients.
Some on the harbour say they sail, we actually do! Our harbour route is governed by the wind as well as the strong tides experienced in the harbour. Obviously if there is no wind we cannot sail. This happens occasionally.
A great venue to connect with your family, friends or work colleagues.
Relax and take in the harbour’s natural beauty, while enjoying a cold beverage on one of our daytime, sunset, or city lights sailing cruises. We provide one of the best venues in town for social outings with our sailing catamarans on Darwin Harbour. Our catamarans provide a unique venue for you to get together with your friends, workmates or family. If you are visiting Darwin or live here, our unique “on the water” venue experience can help you celebrate that special social occasion.
If you are interested in Darwin's early history, heritage points our crew are more than happy to chat with you and point out these harbour sights. They can provide a complimentary history strip map on the cruise to allow you to discover where these points along the harbour foreshore.
