We had perfect weather on the day! Sunset was spot on. Drink and canapes on arrival were a treat and we also met great company on the boat. The hosts were also very friendly and welcoming and ensured we were ok through out the experience. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Port Douglas.
AWESOME Experience
, May 2021
AWESOME experience.... loved watching all the smug peeps who raced onto the boat first to get the ‘best seats’ on the boat scramble to the back of the boat when things got a little rough ! Hanging on to the side was a great viewing spot & so much fun! The crew were fabulous- looked after us all. The sunset spectacular!!
Great Sail
, May 2021
Loved it, great Sailing, canapés were perfect and an ice cold drink. Even saw the sunset and the moon came out.
All at sea

Not clear from reception where we were to join the boat. No shoes policy is not age appropriate e.g. we sat next to an 84 year old recovering from a stroke scared to move from her seat due to bare feet and a wet deck . Suggest you review this policy and make it age appropriate. Canapés and staff friendly and helpful on board. However the safety briefing was cynical and didn’t Instill confidence that staff were concerned at all about our safety. The boat was not set up for this type of trip with not enough seating & seating provided on the lower deck did not facilitate views of the sunset the purpose of the trip! A very average experience not to be recommended.
