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!!

Rough seas but great fun. Crew fantastic made trip enjoyable. Views from boat sailing out were very picturesque and quite stunning at times. Very appealing to the artistic mind.
Perfect way to finish our holiday
Robert_M, May 2023
We did the sunset cruise on our last night at Port Douglas. It was a lovely way to finish off a wonderful holiday. Crew were friendly & knowledgeable. Drinks & nibbles perfect. Even though we didn’t get to see the sunset because of the clouds we still really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this cruise.

Matt_P, May 2023
Sunset cruise, was expecting the usual out of the harbour and a quiet trip. What we got was strong winds and some swell, instead of turning back the crew have us a proper sail. Great fun and a very competent crew
Sunset cruise, with a surprise twist!
Karen_H, May 2023
The weather was a little windy, the seas choppy, we would not be seeing any sunset as it was overcast... and we were somewhat apprehensive. It turned out to be a fun and authentic cruise. The all lady crew were professional, positive and friendly. We had the good fortune to be seated on the top level and able to watch the captain and crew skillfully sail the yacht out to the ocean and back. The smiling crew kept us supplied with drinks and snacks. We loved it so much, we will probably go again!! Thankyou Sailaway cruises.
Well organised sailing...

Well organised sailing adventure with professional staff! 90 minutes was perfect amount of time to see the sunset. Craig and Tar
Excellent sailing experience in Port Douglas.
WilliamAlan_N, Apr 2023
Fun trip on the Catamaran. Lovely vessel with plenty of seating around for a different experinece level of the "adventure". Sitting at the front is as exciting as any fair ground ride for the adrenaline. Even along the back with 38 knot winds is exciting while the seats around the table before the cabin offer a little gentler experience. Lovely staff, smiling and friendly with nice hit and cold canapés.. well worth the experience.
Very relaxing and...

Susanna_B, Apr 2023
I fell ill whilst on holiday last week in PD and had to change the date of our booking from Tuesday to Thursday. I was still extremely unwell on Thursday but my husband was told he could not change the date again so hugely disappointed at having to miss out on our pre-paid cruise.
Pleasant cruising
NINA_A, Mar 2023
We were welcomed aboard a very comfortable boat with room for everyone. We were offered a great selection of canapes which included local prawns which was enjoyed by all. Great views of Port Douglas and the crew were really friendly & helpful. All in all a very pleasant trip.
Wonderful crew and experience
Abbey_J, Mar 2023
The experience was great. The cruise was better than we expected, only because we booked online as a last minute extra activity to do whilst staying in Port Douglas on our honeymoon. The staff were super friendly and so relaxed which made the overall experience enjoyable and chilled. Even though it was a little rough, the catamaran was still incredibly smooth whilst sailing. Thanks for having us. 🙂
