Low Price Guarantee
Spend an enchanted evening in Cairns with a sunset cruise along the scenic Trinity Inlet. Sip a glass of sparkling wine and enjoy nibbles as city lights come on and the fading sun casts a colorful glow across the water, mangrove swamps and mountain ranges. Extend your night with an optional 3-course waterfront dinner at Dundee’s Restaurant — a local favorite where you can enjoy a bounty of fresh seafood, pasta, salads and grilled meats. 
What to Expect
Get a new perspective on the coastline and waterways of Cairns on this enchanting sunset cruise. Make your way to the Reef Fleet Terminal in the early evening and climb aboard a comfortable boat, where you’ll be welcomed with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine and appetizers.
As you head away from the dock and through the waterways of Trinity Inlet, watch the surrounding tropical scenery become bathed in the rosy hues of sunset. Admire the diverse landscape of mangroves and mountains in the distance from the open-air decks or an indoor cabin.
After a tour of the inlet, return to the terminal just after sunset. If you choose the dinner upgrade, take a short stroll along the waterfront to a well-regarded restaurant. Savor a 3-course meal of regional cuisine highlighting fresh-caught seafood like garlic prawns, seared barramundi, and soft-shell crab tempura.

A great little evening cruise

Taking this cruise was a last minute decision. I found out my day tour returned me to central station at 3:30 and did not want to spend the afternoon wandering around. This was a lovely surprise. No large groups, masses of tourists, loud noises or...More
