What a wonderful evening
“I went on the champagne cruise on my own. I was made to feel very welcome and enjoyed the very tasty food. The champagne was cold and plentiful. The breeze and views were spectacular. I even came away with a new friend. I can recommend this cruise to anyone.”

Wonderful way to celebrate a birthday
“My partner and I celebrated his 25th birthday with these lovely people, from start to finish it was a beautiful and fun night! Really relaxed vibe, with everything running with out a glitch and always with a glass of Champagne in hand. Cathryn made some delicious salads which are worth a mention (being a vegetarian I sometimes miss out in catered situations, but this BBQ + salads was great) - watermelon and mint salad, a rocket salad, fresh tomato salsa - oh and olive bread! While my boy was happy with the addition of steak, halloumi veg kebabs and market fresh fish too. It was a fabulous night and was a great way to experience Darwin in a different way. Thank you again to the crew!”
Great night out on the harbour
“Great night on the harbour good food, bubbles and company. Lovely to be under sail with friendly crew warm evening had a great night on a beautiful yacht.. Darwin is so beautiful from the water. Must do when ever you visit darwin...”
Pure relaxation and indulgence on Darwin harbour
“Last night I had the priveledge of going on a 50ft Catamaran for a Sunset Dinner Cruise on the Darwin Harbour. It was one of the most amazing experiences! The whole experience was one of pure relaxation and indulgence.
The friendly, warm, welcoming attentive crew Cathryn, Paul and Dave were there at your every beck and call looking after you like you were guests in their own house. As soon as you board the boat you are given free Champagne. There are a selection of beers, wines and spirits to purchase as well. We gently sailed out into the harbour with other guests having hands on experiences on how to work the sails. We anchored just off the East Point coast line with full view of the sunset and sat and chatted in the cool breeze and soaked in the gorgeous scenery. Excitement errupted when a guest spotted a Dolphin swimming off to the side of the boat and we all watched this gentle creature make its way through the waves. Cathryn and the crew prepared and served us and entree of fresh prawns, camenbert cheese and a selection of pate. Soon came dinner time and the spread presented to us was so fresh, delicious and satisfying. We were served lightly grilled fresh reef fish, BBQ chicken pieces, perfectly cooked nuggets of beef, mango rocket and pistachio salad, fresh tomato basil and balsamic salad, and a refreshing watermelon, mint and feta salad. After everyone had had their fill it was time to return to shore and we all joked about getting out of work the next day and staying on the boat overnight (if only). If you are in Darwin I highly recommmend this experience for relaxing, appreciating our harbour and just generally treating yourself. Give the guys and gals at Sail Darwin a call to book your next adventure. Happy eating everyone”

Our best experience in Darwin!
“By far the most memorable of our activities in Darwin was jumping on board the 50ft ocean-going luxury catamaran for a cruise. For three magic hours we felt the wind and revelled in the silence, enjoying an unforgettable tropical sunset cruise on Darwin Harbour. Organic meats, delicious salads and decedent champagne in abundance are provided to enhance the truly enchanting experience.”
A wonderful evening.
“Thanks for a wonderful evening out on good, old Darwin Harbour. She's a very well appointed vessel and would be quite comfortable to live aboard for a multi day and night cruise. Food was first class too! Great idea to offer overnight stays on board in a quiet part of the harbour. Beats the idea of a city hotel stay hands down. Good luck for the season and fair winds.”
“Awesome sunset sail tonight! 360 degrees darwin harbour views, wonderful hosts, great food and bubbles flowing. Thanks heaps, will be back for sure!”
The ONLY cruise to take!
“The ONLY cruise to take and I've done 20 years worth!
You could not imagine better crew, colder bubbles, more delicious food and a cataram of luxury.
Thank you to all for last nights magical journey. I will be back!”

Absolutely amazing experience
“One of the best nights that we have had on our holiday. Paul, David and Denise were fabulous - couldn't do enough for you and were so much fun. The food was an experience on its own. Cruising Darwin Harbour couldn't be better and to witness the fireworks display for Territory Day celebrations just set the night off. rnWill not hesitate to recommend Sail Darwin to anyone.rnThank you for such a memorable evening.”

“The BEST cruise I have been on in Darwin ! Forget the rest as this is the BEST !! It is just Awesome. David, Jo, Kyte and staff make you so welcome. You do not want for anything - it is a clean, casual atmosphere with a non-stop food and refreshment service. The food is just scumptious, the Bubbles are cold the bathrooms clean. My staff and I had a ball - you can not fault it. THE BEST AWESOME CRUISE EVER. I will be back”

“The sunset, harbor, boat, champagne and meal were all excellent! The crew were so friendly, efficient and professional. I was on my own but the other guests were also very friendly. The perfect evening made even better with the appearance of some dolphins! Awesome!! Definitely the highlight of my Darwin trip! Thank you.”
Lots of fun
“Last Saturday night we went on the SailDarwin Sunset cruise for my friend's birthday. It was a lovely night with lots of laughs. Our captain Dave and crew were very friendly and made us feel special. The food and champagne was great and well worth the price. Another group was also celebrating a birthday and we all ended up celebrating together. Such a good night!”
