Whether you are married on the beach or on the boat, following on with your reception on Sundowner is the perfect choice for smaller cocktail style weddings.

Farewell Brunch
Say good bye to your guests with a simple yet unique brunch on board Sundowner. A great relaxed option, this is an experience your guests will truly remember.

After Party
Many of the venues in Airlie Beach have noise curfews and generally close from 10pm. If you don’t want your wedding to end there, charter Sundowner for a wedding after party and a dance to our resident DJ.


Sundowner can be themed to suit your wedding colours – from elegant to extravagant. With its natural, rustic timber look, you can hire a stylist to add personalised finishing touches, and Sundowner can be what you always imagined your wedding to be.

Ice Breaker
Sundowner offers a marvellous opportunity for your interstate or international guests to meet and break the ice prior to your wedding and help give a relaxed feel to your wedding day. Our scheduled sunset cruise is ideal for a bridal party catch-up, or charter the whole boat for up to 48 guests.

Sundowner is a wonderful venue for small weddings, whether it be at sunrise or sunset, Sundowner provides an intimate and relaxed option.

Beach Pick up or Drop off
If you are getting married at Boathaven Beach, why not make that grand entrance and arrive by boat. We can pick up all your guests from the beach and take them on a cruise after the ceremony and before your reception. Perfect if you want to occupy your guests while you are getting your photos taken.

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!

Jacqui Holst


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!

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.
