We spent most of the 2 hours holding the same position just out of the port. The nibbles was one communal bowl of dip. Felt this was just about you buying drinks on a boat!

I am not really sure how to respond to this comment. First of all we cruise for a total of two hours and do a circumference of Pioneer Bay, from the Port of Airlie to Mandalay Point, cruise over to Cannonvale to view with ship wreck, watch the sunset and then in front of Airlie Beach to see the lights,...

This was a lovely evening and a great way to see Airlie from a different point of view and gave us time to point out and plan other venues and areas of the beach we would have missed otherwise. A cracking place to get some great photos, well priced bar menu, lovely staff, and a special visit to the local... More

My girlfriend and I were very impressed with the service given whilst we relaxed with our champagne, taking in the amazing sites of Airlie Beach and viewing the beautiful sunset. We met some lovely people on board who we spent time with on other trips. The evening encouraged us to continue on with a night out in Airlie - thanks... More

Relaxing on the calm water with sun setting and a glass or 3 or bubbly was great! Fun crew and yummy nibbles. Great to do before dinner.

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

I thank you for your comment. We feel our cruise price is good value for a two hour cruise around pioneer bay (immediately in front of Airlie Beach) and is designed to take in various points of interest, the sunset and the lighting up of Airlie Beach as pointed out on our website and also by other guests comments on...

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
