    The sea is MUCH more choppy than you would expect, even if it looks calm, it's not. Makes it really difficult to walk around. It was so cloudy over the mountains that we didn't see the sunset which was a shame. The staff were very friendly and helpful though and it was still a pretty look out. Definitely need to be there early to get a good seat.

    Wonderful experience! We could not fault it. The crew were friendly, informative and helpful, canapés delicious and the vista perfect. The boat wasn’t crowded it was really a lovely evening

    We have been to PD many times and really enjoyed the Sunset Cruise. It's a great opportunity to relax, breathe in the fresh salty air, enjoy a drink and good company whilst sailing around the calm waters off PD. But this time round it was anything but enjoyable. There was 28-29 knot winds and waves that looked to be around 3m high. No one could sit out front of the boat (without being completely drenched and thrown around) and no one could sit inside for fear of becoming seasick. So everyone scampered to the rear of the boat but there was limited seating options for the 50 people on board to use. Many were forced to sit (and get drenched) along the back row, some braved the side deck, hanging onto the railing for dear life and others braced themselves against the stair rails or whatever else they could get a good grip on. For a solid 60mins we rocked from side to side and up and down. No one moved. No one relaxed. A brave few continued to drink (they at least had their hands free, being in a seat) but most abstained. People were clearly NOT enjoying themselves (one girl was sick) and we couldn’t wait to get back into the sheltered waters of the inlet. This so called “sailing experience” could be likened to a Sydney to Hobart experience – only for the serious sailor! We had friends who did this cruise the day before us – and experienced exactly the same conditions. Three people on their cruise were sick. We were only told once aboard the yacht that things might get a “little rough”. No one was given the option to leave and we were never told just how rough and uncomfortable the trip would be. I’ve never been so disappointed in a cruise, and I survived it better than many other older people on board. I think it was quite irresponsible of the company to proceed. They could have chosen to stay in the calmer protected waters of the inlet, and just puttered around there for 90mins, and I think everyone would have been happy with that. Next time I consider going on this cruise I will not trust Sailaway to make the call – I’ll be personally checking the local wind and wave report. The only positive I will mention, is that the 2 female crew members did a great job in trying to make everyone feel safe and comfortable. Sailaway - please consider your customers next time - and do the right thing by them.

    Absolutely loved it. The sunset was beautiful, got some great photos. Glad I was sitting it was a little choppy. Food and drink service was all good. The small spread was all really nice. Worth the $75 each.

    Excellent cruise , lovely light lunch to start the cruise. Enjoyed the snorkeling. Would take up offer of wet suit if doing again as got a bit cold. Wonderful to see the turtles in their natural environment. A real highlight. Good selection of food and alcohol for the journey home. Great staff,who were very knowledgeable. Child free cruise with romantic sunset to set the scene.

    What a way to cruise inside the Reef! Gentle cruising the waves under sail was wonderful. Enjoyable and relaxing experience in the waters between the Low Isles and Port Douglas. Crew were wonderful making the experience special and personal. No hiccups and everything went smoothly from booking in to getting bak to the marina.

    We can’t thank Sailaway enough. Our 60th birthday celebration sunset cruise charter on 9/7/22 was everything we had hoped for. Every aspect of dealing with Sailaway was seamless from my initial enquiry in early 2021 (with covid concerns addressed): admin, accounts, front-desk staff & the wonderful crew on the day (including I think Zac, Isaac & a young lady whose name I can’t recall sorry) made this a perfect celebration. Highly recommended.

    Enjoyable day, bit of rough weather on the way back. Staff extremely friendly, informative and knowledgeable about the reef. Everything went well and hopefully next time we will get a bit of sun too!

    Staff were friendly and helpful. The scenery was excellent despite it being cloudy. It was very windy. so not for the faint hearted on such a day. We had a seat so that was most helpful.

    What a great crew of positive, friendly souls who have an obvious love of the sea and a passion for their work. When the weather wasn't kind on open water they took us back in to sail the river where it was calm and the scenery was beautiful. Good music playing on deck and plenty of food and drinks to bed had. Well worth the experience, if you're interested in sailing these are the guys to choose.
