One member of our group was unable to attend the cruise due to illness and the crew made every effort to make the family feel better by also taking them to the island.

The skipper/guide was very knowledgeable and clearly very passionate about the boats he was pointing out and describing to us. The harbour itself is lovely of course.

I thought it would be nice to have a harbour cruise, to feel the sea breeze in my face on a hot and humid day. I did not expect it to be so interesting! Friendly crew, interesting commentary and an invitation to the bridge to learn a little more... Most enjoyable! (We went on the 45 minute harbour cruise.)

It would have been nicer if the guy doing the tour had the volume turned up a bit more. Hard to hear what he was saying sometimes. Would have been great if the tour was a bit longer than 45 minutes

Hi Steven, Firstly, our apologies for the delay in responding to your review and our thanks for leaving your helpful feedback. Your comment regarding the volume of the commentary has been passed on to our Operations Manager to check the levels on the vessel PA system. Regarding the timing of the harbour sightseeing cruise, I'm afraid we are restricted in that regard as we only have a one hour gap to utilise the vessel when it's not required for it's normal ferry service between Cullen Bay and Mandorah. Hopefully you found the tour enjoyable during your time on the water and we look forward to welcoming you back to experience another SeaLink tour in the future.

Had a beautiful day for this cruise, saw tug boats, carriers and the odd leisure boat. Information over the speaker was good, we know a bit more about Darwin now. We'd tell others to go on this cruise too. Well done

This tour was a wonderful idea to take. We went around the Darwin Bay while the captain explained the landmarks of the land from the boat. Large big glass panel windows with air conditioning or no air conditioning sitting on the outside of the boat. Very comfortable. Free water. Captain and assistant answer all your questions. Very easy to check-in at the terminal. A very nice trip to watch the beautiful ocean.

This tour has the potential to be really good. The Darwin Harbour is big and has plenty going on. The tour boat is very well set up and the crew are good and helpful. The tour commentary by the Captain is informative and plentiful. On our cruise which was the first for the dry season the sound system played up and needed adjusting which they did. The cruise takes about 45 mins and sticks to the Darwin side of the harbour only. To improve they could include more over on the other side of the harbour. Darwin harbour is normally very calm water so use the speed the boat has to visit some shipwrecks and view the big docks and warves on the outer side.
