Sunset Cruise Port Douglas
Step onboard this authentic Chinese Junk Boat and relax on a Sunset Cruise from Port Douglas.
Setting off from the Crystalbrook Superyacht Marina, sail out into the Coral Sea as the sun sets. With this beautiful twilight cruise, you will certainly be in for a treat. The views from the teak deck and cushioned lounge area of Shaolin are breathtaking. So take in the nearby mountains, picturesque coastline, adjacent islands, and the world-famous Four Mile beach of Port Douglas.
Along the voyage, the Captain will provide a casual, educational, entertaining commentary. With only a small group onboard, there is plenty of space on the deck! As you travel on one of the first classic boats in Port Douglas, soak in the boat’s enchantment and rarity. You will also enjoy the complimentary Yum Cha canapes and a drink! But there are other drinks available for purchase.
Originally built in 1969, the Shaolin was named “Gloria Maris”, meaning “Glory of the Sea”. The original owners sailed her around the world on many adventures. So she certainly has a rich history worth sharing! Purchased in the mid-’80s, the new owners brought her to Port Douglas, where she has become an icon of this seaside town.
Delight in the stunning views of the surrounding rainforest mountains and rich mangrove habitat. And even maybe spot an elusive saltwater crocodile!
Lounge on the teak deck, enjoy cushioned seating or the indoor cabin area – all with spectacular scenery on this ‘one-of-a-kind Far North Queensland boat tour.
