Before sunset as the day begins to cool, you walk out along the magnificent Cairns Marlin Jetty, marvelling at all the reef day trip boats that have returned from a great day out. As day passengers walk by, you are walking out to start a wonderful evening on board the only sunset dinner cruise in Cairns. As you approach the multi million dollar catamaran you will notice the sails raised and lit in gorgeous evening colours enhanced by the pending sunset.

Friendly staff are waiting to greet you at the boarding entrance and again on board. Once on board you will be greeted with a choice of sparking white wine, red wine, local beer, or a soft drink. Whilst sipping and chatting the sun begins to set and great photo opportunities abound. Have the city scape and mountains, or harbour restuarants, or even the harbour yachts as backdrops in your photos to send to family and friends. 

As it becomes dusk we head inside to be seated and enjoy the melodic songs being played by the solo guitarist/singer. With a lovely central dance floor you can choose to dance before or after dinner. You won't even notice the boat moving until you see the night lights of the habour moving by outside the windows.

Dinner is a sumptuous selection of cold and hot options, of entrees, mains and desserts. Oysters, fresh local prawns, savoury roasted vegetables with dips, tasty cured meats, a huge range of salads, butter chicken, stir fried vegetables, local fish with chili/ginger and soy, crispy skin pork belly, crispy salt & pepper squid, rice, pumpkin and spinach tortellini to name sample selection. Warm fresh baked buns with condiments are in plentiful supply. 

Dessert offers a lovely selection of petit cakes, pastries, pavlova, fresh cream, custard, cheese selections with crackers, breads and dried fruits.

The bar is well stocked with local beer, wine and soft drinks plus tea, coffee and cappucino available. The attentive staff will run a tab for your table.

Wonder upstairs to sit on the rear viewing deck. You can sit in chairs, or laze in the bean bags, or enjoy a quick chat with the captain of the boat. 

Fellow passengers on this trip are very relaxed and always willing to chat with people they don't know, this is the ambience the cruise exudes.
