“Don't waste your money on this - what a ripoff!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2009

Sundowner Sunset Cruise charged us AUD75 each (2 people) for a sunset cruise and then dinner at a resort hotel called Coral Seas Resort at Airlie beach. We had one more night in Airlie so why not. Well I wish we had stayed away from this dreadful ripoff. . The open deck boat was incredibly uncomfortable and unprotected from the wind. The drinks were an overpriced(ripoff). As part of this cruise it came with a glass of sparkiling wine and nibbles. The nibbles consisted of a box of crackers and some cheap spring onion dip. You are then stuck on this pontoon for 2 hours paying $ 10 for can of beer and $ 12 per mixed drink and you are simply taken around the harbour wasting your money away!! We were looking forward to the dinner a 2 course meal at the Coral Sea Resort(big rip off people stay away!!!) We got off the boat and were told to walk 20 minutes up the road to get to the retauraunt!!. The meal was a set menu a main and dessert. We order and waited 55 minutes for it to arrive!!!(there was maybe 12 other people in there). The meal was ok but it was not a main it was and entree!!! A bloody entree!! Desert was ok but we had to ask 3 time for them to bring it us (45 minutes after we had finished our meagre entree size mains. Do not waste money at the Coral Seas Resort or this absolute rippoff Sundowner Sunset Cruise.
