Sail into Serenity

Begin your evening with a warm welcome, and a glass of bubbly, beer, or soft drink as you step onto the luxurious sailing catamaran at Cairns' famed Marlin Marina, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. As the day gives way to a star-studded night, embark on a 2.5-hour calm water journey into the heart of Trinity Inlet. Named after Trinity Sunday, it's the perfect backdrop to soak in the sights and sounds of Cairns, a city that owes its existence to the gold rush of the 1870s. As you sail from the Cruise Liner Terminal to the Esplanade, revel in the changing hues of the sky from vibrant blue to a star-studded sky.

Why Should You Get Onboard

As you admire the view, enjoy a delicious buffet dinner that reflects the region's local produce, including a variety of succulent seafood, a nod to Cairns' renowned game fishing culture. The Spirit of Cairns, known for its comfortable, air-conditioned interiors and large outdoor decks, also offers an array of beverages, including tropical cocktails. You may even have a chance to try drinks made with local ingredients, like the famed Cairns' Saltwater Barramundi.
