Your experienced skipper reserve the right to change the route subject to tidal conditions, guest’s safety and comfort. Tidal conditions determine how close to the coast the ‘Charles Darwin’ can operate.
Hear knowledgeable commentary from the crew on Darwin History, Cyclone Tracey and the bombing of Darwin. In the past there have been sightings of crocodiles, dolphins, turtles and dugongs, however there is no guarantee you will see wildlife on your cruise.

The Vessel – Charles Darwin
The ‘Charles Darwin’ is a steel-hulled tri-level catamaran originally named Shangri-La Princess. Built in Adelaide in 1990 for the Stannard family, a well-known name in the boating industry. ‘Charles Darwin’ was built for use on the Gold Coast “Broadwater” taking passengers from Surfer’s Paradise to the Shangri-La resort on Stradbroke Island. After many years’ service, two further owners and two name changes, she became part of Darwin Harbour Cruises family in April 2010. After extensive re-build and refurbishment in Brisbane, she sailed for Darwin as the ‘Charles Darwin’ in August 2010.
