I enjoyed a beautiful sunset dinner cruise aboard the cape adieu November 5th and enjoyed every moment. From the amazing array of fresh seafoods to delicious salads for entree to incredible fresh fish and tender steaks. The sunset was beautiful and the staff were so happy and welcoming it made my night one of the best spent in Darwin.

I highly recommend this cruise to anyone who is in Darwin.

Best thing we did in Darwin. Skipper Shane did a great commentary on the way, and the rest of the staff were fantastic. Food was delicious, steak, fish, prawns, oysters, smoked mackerel was the best smoked fish ever. Salad nice and fresh. We took byo drinks and they supplied ice bucket, and glasses. Highly recommend.

After a bit of researching all the Darwin Sunset cruises I decided to book with Cape Adieu for my husband & I while holidaying in Darwin. So glad I did as the cruise wasn’t over crowded and there was plenty of spaces to take our drinks and enjoy the views on our own. Nibbles were bought out straight away to accompany your drinks, lots of yummy food - all guests had seconds and thirds, the fresh seafood (oysters, banana prawns, fish etc) was some of the best on our Darwin trip & the oysters were so good especially with our BYO champagne. With the stunning sunset it just made for a perfect night ❤️.
You had a choice of main dish and it was cooked to order, which I think made it a higher standard dinner cruise.
The commentary was informative but low key which we preferred and the rest of the time a relaxing playlist played in the background. The cruise was well organised and the service was excellent, the whole crew was really friendly, Gillian was awesome.
Drinks were well priced and being BYO (they provided eskies) was a bonus.
Chatted to guests after dinner at the bow of the boat which was nice and dessert was bought out to us there. A highlight of our holiday, would definitely recommend and would book again when we’re back!
Thanks to the crew for an amazing night.

Fantastic tour. Great sunset at a relaxed pace. Food was quality, oysters and prawns and great fish for the main course.

I forgot to bring any drinks and was worried that the cost would be massively inflated, but a bottle of red (I’m admittedly not a wine connoisseur and just like drinkable wine) and two soft drinks only came to $41. Bargain.

Would definitely recommend as it was the highlight of our long weekend in Darwin.

Everything about the experience was AWESOME. Management could not have been more helpful in assisting us to make and change our booking (especially during Lockdown situation). The ship and fit out for dinner was the perfect setting. Dinner was sensational: home made dips, freshest and most delicious prawns, oysters, fish, salads etc. The crew and their service was so professional, friendly and we felt immediately welcomed and completely relaxed once onboard. The vista (sunset like no other) was stunning (so many photo ops and crew and friendly fellow guests more than happy to assist). Being able to bring along our own beverages was an extra added bonus appreciated by all. This was definitely our Darwin highlight. Thank you Cape Adieu for such amazing an memory for our family. So enjoyable that we have booked again for our next visit in 12 months time!

What a great cruise. BYO plus licenced onboard. Food was fantastic. Dips as starters. Prawns, oysters and smoked Mackrell for entree. Main was cooked to order steak or fish. Fruit and coffee to finish. Cruise was very leisurely with plenty of opportunities for pictures of the setting sun. Great experience all round.
