Cruises operate seven nights a week.
Starting at Marlin Marina, Spirit of Cairns takes you on a journey deep into the interior of Trinity Inlet and its winding tributaries. The cruise passes along Cairns’ waterfront and Esplanade precinct, delivering panoramic views of this tropical port city.
Depending on the time of year, our dinner cruises offer stunning views of the sun setting over the rainforest-clad mountains, and the twinkling lights of the city as dusk deepens into night.
Yourself and your smile, for a great evening ahead. We suggest tropical cocktail attire, with a light jacket for the winter months. Footwear is mandatory, with suitable shoes for boating recommended. While this is a calm water cruise, you will find it more comfortable moving around the boat in flat rubber-soled shoes.
Don’t forget to bring cash, or an EFTPOS/credit card for your bar purchases onboard.
Good food, great service, nice evening cruise. Definitely worth the money.
It was a great night out with a wonderful variety of great quality food. The staff were awesome and brought out a little cake and sang happy birthday to my better half. We both can’t wait to do this again.
Pleasant cruise with professional staff and plenty of good food and drinks.
