A harbor cruise provides the best way to explore the unique tidal estuary that surrounds Cairns. Enjoy pickup from your Cairns, Palm Cove or Northern Beaches hotel (if option selected) or make your way to the Reef Fleet Terminal in the early afternoon. Climb aboard a river boat and settle in on one of the outside decks or in a comfortable enclosed cabin.
Get a new perspective on the city of Cairns as you cruise along the waterfront, and then make your way into meandering waterways of Trinity Inlet. As you glide along the mangroves of this tidal estuary, keep an eye out for birds, reptiles and crocodiles basking in the sun. A friendly crew will help you spot the massive crocs and provide live commentary about crocodile lifecycles and harbor history.
Enjoy complimentary afternoon tea onboard, or treat yourself to a selection of snacks and beverages from the fully licensed bar (own expense). Young passengers are treated to a tour of the wheel house and can commemorate their voyage with a ‘crocodile certificate’ and coloring sheet.
To enhance your experience, select the option to have a pre-cruise lunch at Dundee’s Restaurant, considered one of the best in Cairns. Enjoy a 2-course meal right on the waterfront with a menu highlighting grilled meats, pasta, fresh salads and seafood selections like soft-shell crab tempura, garlic prawns and seared barramundi. Kids can choose from a special children’s menu, and drinks are available to purchase from the bar.
