Enjoy a 2-hour sunset cruise on Hervey Bay that includes gourmet food and a glass of beer or wine. Cruise the waters between the mainland and Fraser Island while watching a colorful sunset, perhaps spotting dolphins and sea turtles near the boat. As the sun sets and the lights sparkle along the Hervey Bay waterfront, the crew serves generous platters of hot and cold dishes on deck. Sip a complimentary glass of beer, wine or soda upon boarding, and have the option to purchase additional drinks.
What to Expect
After pickup from Hervey Bay accommodations, your Sunset Cruise departs from Great Sandy Straits Marina.

Travel along the pristine waterways between Fraser Island and mainland Queensland, watching for dolphins and turtles as you admire the sunset over Hervey Bay.  Enjoy fresh seafood and non-seafood dishes, which include hot and cold finger foods served on the deck so you don’t miss any of the views. Items may include Hervey Bay king prawns, mixed gourmet pastries, fresh half-shell oysters, half-shell Hervey Bay scallops, kebabs, and crumbed or tempura fish bites (other items may be substituted or added). 

As the evening continues, take in the twinkle of the city lights along the 8 miles (13 km) of beachfront that is the Charlton Esplanade. Cruise past Urangan Pier, and admire the glow of the harbor precinct as the sky darkens. Specific destinations are determined by tides and weather conditions. One complimentary drink of your choice is included - yes, even the premixed spirits.  Additional drinks are available for purchase on board at affordable prices.

When you return to the marina, you are free to continue your night independently at a number of establishments in Hervey Bay, or head back to your accommodation.

Great sunset cruise on a well maintained boat, great staff, delicious food which was constantly being offered throughout the cruise. My wife who is on a gluten, dairy and seafood diet was well catered for.

Hi Rob, thanks for the great review. We know not everyone likes Seafood and many people have food allergies/intolerances, so we absolutely try and cater for everyone. We're happy to hear you both enjoyed the cruise. Many thanks, Rebecca
