FAQs

All cruises depart from our mooring at A Finger, Cairns Marlin Marina.

Spirit of Cairns Map

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. 

Yourself and your smile, for a great afternoon 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 a little cash, EFTPOS or a credit card for your bar purchases.
