Our cruise experiences provide one of the best ways to experience Darwin Harbour. Enjoy and experience a famous Darwin sunset, a city lights cruise or a half day sailing bbq lunch tour. Our new Seawind 1160 Resort is specially designed for the tourist market providing cushioned and shaded seating. It is a perfect vantage point close to the water to catch a glimpse of wildlife. Enjoy the cool afternoon breeze filling the sails that propels Kuru around the harbour. Our route incorporates a relaxing unique sailing tour showcasing points of interest about the harbour’s ecological attributes, snippets of WWII on the harbour, early settlement and heritage. Guests can take away an informative strip map that shows some of the history we will point out. Our friendly crew are always available to chat with guests during the cruise. Please note that both the BBQ Meal and Nibbles option are on the same vessel. Mid week cruises will require a minimum number/cost to cruise. Cruise experience choices 1. 3 hr relaxing sailing sunset cruise with nibbles or a bbq meal and free drinks (4.30pm to 7.30pm), bbq meal, nibbles accompanied with free red/white wine and mid strength beer or; nibbles cruise accompanied with free red/white wine and mid strength beer. 2. A Half day BBQ lunch history and ecology tour (12.30pm to 4pm), A relaxing bbq lunch accompanied with free red/white wine and mid strength beer. 3. Chill out after a busy day with our City lights cruise (7.45 to 9.45), After a busy day or if you cannot make the sunset and want to experience a very pleasant end to the day then this cruise is for you. A cheese platter accompanied with free red/white wine and mid strength beer and the pleasant atmosphere aboard Kuru at night. Enjoy the city lights from the harbour and when the moon is low the Top End stars.
