Locally owned and family operated, we have been operating cruises on Darwin Harbour since 1996, making us the longest running operators in the Top End cruising business.


We founded Darwin Pearl Lugger Cruises in 1996 and expanded the business in 1999 with the purchase of our 19-metre sailing schooner “Tumlaren”.

For the past eighteen years we have entertained both visitors and locals with cruises from Breakfasts to Dinners, and Birthdays to Weddings.

In 2010 we again expanded our business with the purchase of the “Charles Darwin”. She is a beautiful 25-metre luxurious catamaran with amazing facilities to suit any group of clientele. With two air-conditioned deck levels there is a huge range of cruises to suit every budget. Choose between the air-conditioned "Captain's Deck" where lunch and dinner Buffets are served or cruise the "Bridge Deck" upstairs in style for the Sunset and Day Cruises. All passengers have access to the top level "Sun Deck" where the best views of the harbour are seen.
She is able to seat 100 guests for Dinner and is in survey for up to 270 passengers for corporate or private functions.
