We just hopped off the sunset cruise and it was incredible. We highly recommend this company, and the drink on arrival was a very nice touch. The food (which was all included in the $50pp) was beautiful. Definitely a must do in Port Douglas and was very well priced.

After heaps of research to find the best possible trip to suit our family needs we certainly chose the best! Sailaway was the most amazing experience ever. From Alex the salty sea-dog captain to the very professional, friendly and ever helpful crew Tammy and Bianca the day was faultless. Excellent food, service and snorkelling! what can we say - swimming with turtles, reef sharks, stunning reef fish and finding Nemo! The boat was truly beautiful and very well equipped.
If you are reading this wanting the best experience possible of the great barrier reef and great value for money then this is it. Small groups with personalised service! Our kids loved it and have decided it is the "best day ever!" Thank you Sailaway - life is about the experiences and the memories created!

The sunset cruise on the Sailaway is one of the most romantic and peaceful cruises ever! A beautiful boat with lovely staff and the canapés were first class! A very enjoyable 1&1/2 hours - thoroughly recommended!!

The crew of Jacky, Tammy and skipper Scott were the perfect team for my recent snorkelling day trip to Low Isles. They left nothing to have chance, provided personalised service and instruction where needed, and were very warm and engaging with all on board. I would definitely tour with them again! Don
