Sunset Cruise Port Douglas On a Private Charter Yacht

Our private charter yacht is based in beautiful Port Douglas on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and each evening we head out of the harbour to sail the ocean and watch as the sunset puts on its colourful display in the sky and on the ocean’s surface.  

Our private charter sunset cruises depart from the public boat ramp in the centre of Port Douglas guests are greeted by the private charter yachts skipper and deckhand and made welcome aboard the 51 foot catamaran.

A short briefing will be given on the proceedings of the two hour sunset cruise and then you are underway for a delightful evening.

Once the yacht makes it’s way out of the Port Douglas inlet and heads out to the waters of the Great Barrier Reef the deckhand will provide the 10 guests with beautifully presented canapes and nibbles specially prepared by our French chef. 

As our yacht is not licenced to sell alcohol, guests are permitted to bring along your own choice of beverages, and preferably no glass bottles.

Guests find a place to settle in and relax as we sail along the waters of the Great Barrier Reef and witness the dazzling display in the late afternoon sky as it goes from brilliant blue to a myriad of dancing colour pallets.

This display of moving colours repeats itself on the ocean just like a mirror that makes the perfect Instagram photo. This is one private charter sunset cruise you will never forget.
