This magnificent Sunset Cruise is a definate must!!! My hubbie and I loved every moment. We actually didn't want to go back in. Loved how those on shore waived to us! Very well organised and we didn't have to pay as we had already booked the Daintree Trip with Daintree tours. Thank you to Rob at Le Cher De Monde... More

There were only a dozen people on board the 62 foot cat leaving plenty of room to sit and or lounge on the upper deck, foredeck or rear lounge areas. We brought our own liquid refreshments which were placed in refrigeration and they complemented the nice canapés served during the cruise under sail...left on time, returned on time and was... More

As someone who is afraid of water/boats and cannot swim, needless to say, I was terrified to take this trip. The boat, was clean & very nice. The trip was smooth sailing, there and back. On both the small and large boats. The hosts were nothing short of amazing. Down to earth and very accomodating. Whilst being very professional. They... More

We sailed on a sunset cruise with Captain Alicia and crew, Shay and Rochelle on a recent girls trip to Port Douglas. The cruise was so much fun, the crew were so friendly and made everyone feel very welcome. Canapes and champagne watching the sunset over the Daintree was spectacular. Cannot recommend this activity highly enough.

Sailed out to Low Isles on this beautiful catamaran, expertly handled by the (female) captain. Choice of snorkelling or a trip in glass bottomed boat to view of the Great Barrier Reef, one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the world . Time to explore the island and then back on board for a tasty lunch. A most memorable day

A brilliant day snorkelling with great hosts. I'd highly recommend this trip as it doesn't take long to get out to the reef and the island - about 45mins - so excellent for a day trip. The lunch was superb. The snorkel guiding and trip brilliant.

We enjoyed our “Sunset cruise” from sitting on a trampoline-like net at the front of the boat. As we sailed out of Dickson Inlet, we were served light refreshments as we enjoyed the ride. I was given special gluten-free selections, which consisted of mouth-watering Thai crab cakes and dolmas (grape leaves stuffed with rice). We enjoyed viewing the mountains in... More

If you don't do something along these lines when you're up here, you're mental! That said, these are not cheap trips (but that all depends on one's budget). Budget: $250-300 per person. We decided to take the less intensive 'snorkel-only' option (to the Low Isles), on the powered-sail boat; "Aquarius". Figured we could focus more on the reef & less... More

Incredibly high standard catamaran trip to the Low Isles. The catamaran could have catered for up to 23 people, luckily there was only 5 of us plus 2 crew. It was such a great trip, we were really looked after from the moment we stepped on board. Lunch was superb. Teas and coffees were served on arrival and further teas,... More

The Aquarius and it's staff were good, a smooth cruise throughout. BYO is highly recommended. Cold canapes are served with drinks available for purchase. Sunset cruise should leave later in the day, the sun was still quite high in the sky when we got back which left us unsatisfied overall. Was a sunset cruise with no sunset.
