Make your own way to Marlin Marina in Cairns to collect your private pontoon, then set sail on your half or full day adventure. Cruise through the Trinity Inlet, an estuary fringed by forested mountains and just a short distance from the city. Glide through the glistening waters and mangrove forests, keeping an eye out for local wildlife like pelicans, egrets and eagles. You might even spot the odd crocodile lounging on the banks!
Your day is yours to spend as you wish, so perhaps enjoy fishing or crabbing along the inlet, stop for a barbecue lunch on the waterfront or cruise out to explore the mangrove swamps around Admiralty Island. Or you could simply relax on deck and soak up the scenery.
Please note: No boat license is required to drive the pontoons, but the driver must be over 18 years. Fuel is included and fishing tackle, bait, crab pots and BBQs can be hired on the day.
