Get into holiday mode with a sunset cruise

Sundowner is a fully covered, purpose built catamaran designed for socialising. Unlike a yacht, we have a flat surface and no trip hazards. There is ample room to move, and high heels are welcome.

Our Airlie Beach sunset cruise departs Tuesday to Sunday evenings and circumnavigates Pioneer Bay. As we have very little draft we are able to get up close and personal to many points of interest along the Airlie Beach coastline and enjoy a bit of turtle spotting in Turtle Bay.


What Our Guests Say

Such an amazing experience on the Airlie beach at sunset. The crew were amazing. Thanks for the great vibe you created on the cruise. Thanks to the captain for letting my wife steer for a while. Great music and lights. Free bubbles, yay, and snacks. The view was amazing and so romantic.

We did the cruise and dine sunset package and cannot recommend enough! The cruise was amazing, with lovely staff and drinks, nibblies and music which created a relaxing yet fun experience. Definitely great value for money and will be doing it again next time we are here!

Im a local of Airlie Beach. I’ve been on this trip 3 times in the last 4 years or so when family come to stay. We have never been disappointed. The crew are fantastic and it’s a peaceful way to watch the sunset with friends and family. It’s great to see the town from a different perspective. We will go again!
