Cruise into a lost world!

Top End Eco Cruise

This iconic multi-award winning voyage of discovery is the only one north of Port Augusta past the stunning red cliffs of Redbanks, up to the top of the gulf, over flats dry at low tide, into the salt works conservation zone among an unparalleled setting of mangroves and outback red sand dunes with the Flinders Ranges as your back drop.

Top end eco cruise 

For optimum experience this cruise departs in the morning giving:

  • Best light on Redbanks
  • Best chance of light winds
  • Best tides to get further up
  • Best chance of seeing dolphins

To complement the scenery you will enjoy an informative commentary from a 4th generation local with the experience of over 2000 cruises in the area, giving a fascinating insight into the land, its people, its past, present and future. You will marvel how over 1000 million years the landscape has evolved and be astonished how a tide flowing for just 6 hours will transfer 10 billion litres of water out of the top of the gulf making it inaccessible and unrecognisable at other times.

Our custom built vessel ‘DekyZayne’ allows close up views and access into secluded areas of the Northern Waters (also known as the DekyZayne Waters).

As the tour gets back mid morning it allows those travelling to get back on the road or enjoy the regions’ other attractions, as increasing numbers of visitors are doing.
