Darwin Sunset Cruise, Including Fish 'n' Chips

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
As the sun sets over Darwin, take to the water for a scrumptious serving of fresh, wild caught Northern Territory fish and chips. Accompanied with a complimentary drink, this Australian favorite comfort food is the center piece of this award winning Sea Darwin sunset cruise. You'll be taken to the best places on the harbor to relax, unwind and enjoy a famous Top End sunset. Watching the sun set over Darwin while enjoying Fish’n Chips, is a truly Territorian experience.
  • Unwind on a sunset cruise from Darwin Harbour
  • Your captain picks up a fish and chips dinner made with fresh local fish
  • Travel to the best spots to view the sunset
  • Your cruise includes beer or wine and a souvenir
What to Expect
Your sunset cruise starts at Stokes Hill Wharf at Dock 2. Board your boat and ride north to Cullen Bay Beach, where your captain stops to pick up your meal of fish and chips made with fresh, wild-caught fish. (If weather conditions are adverse, your captain may decide to stop at the Marina instead to pick up your meal.) Then, enjoy your dinner with a glass of sparkling wine or beer. Cruise around the harbor and bay to find the best spots to see the sunset and take photos. Afterward, your captain takes you on a fast ride back to Stokes Hill Wharf. Your captain gives you a souvenir stubby cooler or wineglass, and bids you farewell at the dock.

Hi there. There is definitely a toilet on board. As for the accessibility issues you raise, why not give the operators a call and have a chat with them directly. :)
