Sunset cruise
Glenys_L, Jan 2023
Seeing the sunset under sail. The crew was helpful and friendly. We even got to help put up the sails. It was great fun. Being greeted with a glass of bubbles on arrival was lovely. We all had a great time. Watching the sunset was fantastic.

Ripped off
Stephen_C, Sept 2022
Poor experience, a tablespoon of woolworths dips and cheese slopped on a plate. No sailing as owner of boat did not want the sail up ??? I believe i booked a sunset SAILING cruise..
Response from Host, Sept 2022
Sorry to hear this Stephen, I have spoken with the owner and there seems to have been a misunderstanding between him and the captain. We do always try and get the sails up as much as possible. Please call us if you would like to speak further. Many thanks.

We went on the sunset sailing cruise on our first full day in Airlie Beach. The captain and crew member were inviting and friendly. The views were so pretty and we couldn’t stop taking so many pics and videos. The snacks provided were ok. Meeting point easy to find. Would highly recommend this tour for everyone. Thanks again.

Beautiful boat, gorgeous...
Allison_K, May 2022
Beautiful boat, gorgeous sunset but staff smoked and gave little interest in being there and had poor manners. Could have been an amazing night.
Response from Host, May 2022
Hi Allison, Thanks for taking the time to give us a review. Our staff should not be smoking onboard so we will follow this up. Our apologies this happened and the appropriate action will be taken with the staff member.
Very disappointing and waste of money
Piper_D, May 2022
Went on the sunset cruise with friends. Disappointing is an understatement. Oscar was nice enough but Pete’s attitude was beyond disgusting. The weather was wet, which is understandable, but instead of admitting it and cancelling it we still paid $79 to trek out to the sea to be surrounded by clouds, drenched and cold. We had barely left the marina before they began handing out paper plates of cheese platters. We HAD to eat it then, in the rain and wind with barely any room. The wet seats were covered in wet rain coats, they wanted us to stay up top as long as they could until they had no choice but to tell us we could go downstairs. That wasn’t even the worst of it. When we got off, pete threw the shoe basket off the boat, so carelessly and shoes fell in the water. He told everyone that it’s wet season and we’re going to get wet so that’s how it is. Worst manners, disappointing cheese platters and over priced drinks. I know the rest of the boat can agree with me.
Response from Host, May 2022
Hi Piper, I think we responded to your google review and issues have been discussed with refund issued. Many thanks
