Sailaway Local and Visitors favorite, the original and authentic Low Isles and Sunset experiences since 1985. Sailaway sisters IV & V luxury 'Lagoon' Catamarans sailed from France offer luxury reef and island day trips at 8.30am and 1.00pm, only 1 hour sail to the protected Coral Cay Great Barrier Reef Island. Relax on the white sandy beaches, snorkel over the magnificent coral gardens in the blue lagoon and swim with turtles in their natural habitat. Take a trip on the glass bottom boat, enjoy a superb buffet lunch, before pure sailing back to Port Douglas. NEW Afternoon Cruise; Sail, island, snorkel and sunset combined, adults only. Absolutely the most relaxing experience on Great Barrier Reef 3 departures daily to suit you perfectly. Go Sailaway! SAILAWAY #1 SUNSET SAILING "MUST DO' $60 New Hot/Cold Canapes menu, complementary drink and fully licensed bar. Highly recommended for Adults, amazing value and ambiance

My wife and I enjoyed an amazing 1.5 hour sunset cruise in early Sept. We were lucky to have a still night which provided the most pleasant trip with beautiful scenery. Well worth the price.
