Get into Whitsunday holiday mode with an Airlie Beach Sunset Cruise on Sundowner

Unwind in the ambiance of a Whitsunday sunset, as you see in the evening from dusk to dark. Watch the lights of Airlie Beach while enjoying your favourite tipple from our fully licensed bar. Sundowner Cruises offers a relaxing social atmosphere for connecting with new friends and sharing experiences. 

Sundowner is a fully covered, purpose built catamaran designed for socialising – a floating bar. Unlike a yacht, we have a flat surface and no trip hazards. There is ample room to move, and high heels are welcome.

A glass of sparkling or soft drink is included in your sunset cruise ticket price, and the bar is open throughout the cruise for you to purchase further drinks. Cash or card welcome. Sorry, no BYO.

Sundowner departs from Coral Sea Marina, North Village, which is only a short walk from the main street of Airlie Beach. Coral Sea Marina is a vibrant award winning marina which includes the Garden Bar & Bistro with uninterrupted views across the marina and Sorrento’s Restaurant & Bar located alongside the boardwalk in the North Village.

We circumnavigate Pioneer Bay and as we have very little draft we are able are able to get up close and personal to the many points of interest along the Airlie Beach coastline, and enjoy a bit of turtle spotting in Turtle Bay. After the sun sets, enjoy the lights of Airlie Beach at night, while we slowly make our way back to port.

Airlie Beach and the Whitsunday islands provide the perfect backdrop for our sunset cruises. Sundowner is also available in the afternoon for private charters for birthdays, corporate groups, weddings, hens and bucks parties, or any celebration.
