I thought the trip was overpriced. Yes, you get a glass of bubbly and some snacks. The actual trip is just a short way out and I felt it was a bit rushed. The boat goes out of the marina and across to the wreck, turns and comes back. No commentary, no chilling and watching the sun go down. Would... More

The skipper and crew were lovely. Enjoyed the sunset and looking back towards Airlie Beach. One hour is enough for this trip not two. But, to offer some carrots and celery sticks with Jats biscuits and a very very runny French onion dip as nibbles is just rude, along with ONE glass of champers. Too bad if you are not... More

This was a nice cruise around the bay area and the husband/wife team who run it were very friendly and outgoing. I thought they did a great job of putting the event together. This was more of a mingle and talk to other people, if you're into that kind of thing which can make it more fun. The captain was... More

Thank you for your review. It’s was a very cold evening, it actually snowed in South East Queensland. In our confirmation txt to guests we do recommend bringing additional layers in the cooler months and as you have mentioned we are happy to provide blankets. You are correct in that we do not provide a running commentary during the cruise... More

Booked a night on the sundowner on July 12 and had a perfect night with the weather and hosts. This is must for anyone staying in Airlie Beach, at $39 a head for 2 hours this is a must. The best night we had

My husband and I had such an amazing night on the sundowner. The boat was comfortable and very sturdy. We were welcomed with a glass of sparkling and a brief safety intro. We then spent the next two hours cruising the harbour listening to a really good playlist and taking in the beautiful sunset. There was nibbles on the boat... More

Love this relaxing cruise that offers a unique aspect of Airlie Beach that you otherwise don't really get to see. The crew are terrific - Nicole & Jeremy (owners) are fantastic people. Altogether great value experience owned by Whitsunday locals!
