A beautiful way to end the day, whilst no sun setting that evening due to being overcast, the cruise was awesome. Joel and the crew were first class, very informative and lots of fun! The catamaran was very spacious, there was 45 passengers on board and lots of space for everyone to sit down and fully relax! Great music playing, canapés provided with first drink free of charge. The whole 90 minutes was relaxing and enjoyable- full of information and something I’d recommend doing!

Great little sail. Skipper Joel, and his crew were fantastic. Full of information, and happy to chat and engage with passengers sharing details about the area and the vessel. Only problem was 90 minutes felt a little short, and you rarely get to see the sunset over the cloud cover in the hills. Still well worth it for a peaceful cruise.

My wife and I spent an hour and a half aboard the Sunset Sailing Cruise and it was a great experience.

Not only was the sunset the the boat stunning, the friendly staff were fantastic, offering to take photos and serving extremely well-priced drinks. The picking plate of cheese and biscuits was also great.

The staff were extra supportive of my wife who started to feel seasick towards the end of the trip, due to the rough weather.

Would unreservedly recommend

It was a relaxing sunset cruise off the Four Mile Beach with canapés, drinks and music. We found ourselves a lovely spot on the upper deck with great views.

Ambience: Very Good
Food: Average
Service: Good

We took this tour as part of an offer from Sailaway when we made a booking for the Sailaway Mackay Cay Snorkelling Tour (please see separate review).

We absolutely loved this experience. The crew was exceptional and they provided great service. The view back to the mainland was spectacular and being on the water and watching the sunset was amazing. Remember to dress for the possibility of windy conditions and you will be asked to take your shoes off before boarding. Totally recommend this as it is also great value.

As the Founder of Atlas Wellness I make wellness a priority and have wanted to experience one of the seven natural wonders of the world for some time.

I did a lot of research to get this right, and happy to say Sailaway didn’t disappoint on this half day trip and snorkel to the reef, returning at sunset.

They accommodated my gluten free request with a number of options and provided a straight forward but special experience to the reef. Unforgettable and memorable, I recommend this to all - young and old.

Check out the Alas Wellness video to see more about my experience with Sailaway.

We did the sunset sail with Sailaway is was so relaxing and the staff were happy and enjoyed chatting with all guests on board. The views are amazing. A great thing to do on our honeymoon
We spoke with Steve the owner of the company and it was great to hear not only passion for his company initiatives but for Port Douglas tourism in general.
We were happy to support a local family business. Highly recommend and I have also previously done their Low Isles tour which highly recommend too.

My husband and I did this cruise as a Birthday gift for him. We could not have asked for a more perfect time. The two crew members were fantastic, a welcome drink on arrival and finger food. An hour and a half was a perfect amount of time to experience sailing on the water and watching the sun set.

Jumping aboard the catamaran, the crew said we had ideal conditions for sailing and the sunset. Unfortunately, once we were out on the ocean, the sky turned dark and it became very windy. I regretted sitting out the front and not tying back my hair! The views of the coastline and horizon were lovely while the sun was out. The crew was great, very helpful, and the canapés and drinks were good.
