My husband an I took a sunset cruise on Aquarius a few weeks ago. The cruise was for about 1 1/2 hours so just a loop out and around the Port Douglas area. Having been on the Calypso reef tour a few days earlier, I wasn't sure what to expect. It turned out to be a totally different experience, just very relaxing, as we sat back and sipped our drinks and chatted to the lovely people in our immediate vicinity, while watching the ocean go by! I think these friendly people 'made' our tour the enjoyable experience that it was. The view of the cloud topped mountains, and the sunset were quite lovely.
Food provided was adequate and nice enough, tho perhaps could have been presented a little better - maybe on a platter, rather than out of a plastic 'decor' container. Passengers could take their own drinks, including alcoholic ones, plastic glasses were supplied.
It did seem that the demographic was generally older people who maybe couldn't do any other water activities such as diving or snorkelling.
The tour was reasonably priced for what you got, fortunately we had a $20 discount each, having toured with the same company a few days earlier.
Would I do it again - yes, but when I am much older and can't do the snorkelling.
