A Cairns Dinner Cruise is the perfect way, to end a perfect day in paradise. Boarding our sailing catamaran at the Marlin Marina, you’ll enjoy an evening of calm water cruising on Trinity Inlet, taking in the sights and sounds of this tropical port city and its surrounding tributaries, as they transition from day to night. Every journey begins with bubbles, as all good dinner cruises should. With your glasses charged, stroll the interior or exterior decks and admire the view as the sky transforms from blue to red to orange and finally a silky black, filled with thousands of sparkling stars. Your journey takes you deep into the heart of Trinity Inlet and across the waterfront precinct of Cairns, from the Cruise Liner Terminal to the Esplanade. The water is calm, the weather mild and the night is yours to enjoy, with entertainment and a delicious buffet featuring some of the region’s best produce, including seafood. This is the ultimate in waterside dining.

Amazing experience. We found out about the cruise chatting to a local who highly recommended it. We promptly booked and did not regret it. Friendly staff, fantastic atmosphere and the food was top notch. My only regret is that I couldn't fit another serve in!

A beautiful, relaxing time. Being Cairns locals we were given a discount on our booking. The atmosphere was fun with live entertainment that wasn't too loud so we could still have a conversation. In our family of 7 we had all ages: my parents in...More

Absolutely terrible experience. We booked this in thought that we would be dined in luxury but no, we were presented with a hideous array of buffet style foods. Oysters were the worst we'd ever eaten, bland and tasted refrigerated. Prawns difficult to peel and so...More
