Adventure sailing about a 50ft luxury catamaran

Designed for exploring the remote Northern Territory coast and limited to small groups we offer a personalised experience with opportunities to enjoy the diversity of the Territory’s marine life, including dolphins, crocodiles, barramundi, mud crabs, turtles and an array of bird life.

Our aim is to leave guests with an exceptional “real sailing” experience and memories to take home, in comfort and safety aboard Sundancer NT.

Enthusiastic guests are welcome to assist the crew in settings the sails, taking the helm, and learning the ropes under the patient and expert eye of our skipper Dave, who is a certified Yachtmaster trainer.


Get a taste of our beautiful harbour, 5 times bigger than Sydney Harbour, with our signature CHAMPAGNE SUNSET SAIL, a 3 hour cruise that includes free champagne and delicious dinner aboard. If you're lucky we'll have a pod of dolphins join us, surfing the bow wave. And of course you'll witness some of the most spectacular sunset skies you’ll ever see from the best location in town, aboard Sundancer 50ft catamaran.

We also offer a daytime sail that takes us WHERE THE WIND BLOWS. If you like the idea of sailing with the wind; an uncrowded easy-going atmosphere; feeling the sun, salt and wind on your skin; the opportunity to spot dolphins, dugongs, turtles, and crocodiles; sharing fabulous food; and a very friendly and knowledgeable crew, then this is the cruise for you!


HEAVENS ABOVE: Spend the night aboard in a private air-conditioned cabin, or swag it on deck under a sky of diamonds.

- Stargazing away from the city lights
- Comfortable accommodation with private amenities
- Sensational sunrises over the ocean
- Do as much or as little as you like – fish, sail, read, relax, sleep
- Return feeling refreshed, invigorated, and relaxed.
