What You Can Expect

Cairns Shore Excursion: Cairns Harbor Cruise

Trinity Inlet - Cairns Harbour Cruise

After your ship docks in Cairns, enjoy a cruise through Cairns’ tidal estuary on the air-conditioned MV Crocodile Explorer. Follow the waterways of this stunning estuary, backed by the picturesque rainforest and mountains, and see magnificent views usually reserved for fishing boats.

You might see crocodiles basking on the shore as your cruise boat makes its way through the mangroves, especially in the cooler mid-year months. Your knowledgeable crew will share interesting facts about the crocodiles’ breeding habits and their mangrove environment.

See points of interest on the Cairns waterfront, and learn about the harbor’s history while you cruise. With a mix of indoor and outdoor viewing areas, the cruise suits all weather -- sit in the air-conditioned cabin or find a viewing area outside.

Snacks and souvenirs are available for sale from the fully licensed bar on board (own expense), and afternoon tea is included on your cruise. Children can take a tour of the wheelhouse and all kids receive a Crocodile Certificate and crocodile coloring-in sheet.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your excursion ends with ample time for you to return to the Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal for your ship’s departure. In the extremely unlikely event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.
