While you’re in the tropical far north of Queensland there’s nothing quite like the relaxing and often invigorating experience of a Port Douglas sunset cruise on the Coral Sea.
Book your place on either Aquarius or Sailaway IV seven days a week and enjoy the luxury of these amazing catamarans as they ride the waves on a thrilling sunset sail off Port Douglas.
Both yachts depart around 4:30 and return around 6:30 for an awesome late afternoon sailing experience.
Or how about an afternoon trip to Low Isles on Sailaway V with a sunset sail returning to Port to meet up with her sister ship Sailaway IV?
All three yachts depart from Port Douglas Reef Marina and can be booked at The Mango Tree or online here.
