Sunset Sessions

CoastXP’s Sunset Sessions showcase the breathtaking Hunter River and Newcastle Harbour from our custom-built boat. Our sunset sessions are the perfect way to unwind at the end of the day and witness the sun sink into the horizon over the Port of Newcastle.

The tour focuses on the history of the working port, with plenty of time to witness the resident dolphins and other marine life. Enjoy a complimentary locally-sourced cold beverage while you hear commentary about a number of key destination landmarks around the port.

The Port of Newcastle handles a staggering 4,000 shipping movements per year. This tour provides the opportunity to view the Svitzer tugs and visiting ships up close from the water. See the flora and fauna and surrounding mangroves as we cruise along the Hunter River up to Stockton bridge.

Sit back and relax as we pass the Newcastle Foreshore, Stockton and Kooragang Island. Check out some of the Hunter’s most significant Aboriginal sites, as well as getting plenty of photo opportunities as the sun sets. Our Sunset Sessions are perfectly timed if you wish to continue your night and watch the harbour light up from any one of Honeysuckle’s excellent bars and restaurants.
