Nice cruise
Oct 2021
Great little sunset cruise on something a little unique. Drink and nibbles were a nice touch, and the skipper gave a good commentary on the history of the boat and Port Douglas

Very poor customer service
Sep 2021 • Couples
Sadly we didn't get the opportunity to do this as even tho advertised we got a text message ( not even a phone call ) to say they had cancelled our trip that my partner had been organizing as a surprise for our honeymoon . They then told us it was up to us to chase our own refund and after some very unhelpful messages basically said they wouldn't help us .. never have I experienced such bad customer service whilst in port Douglas .. we visit here regularly and do a lot of these cruises but this is one I would never recommend to anyone .....0/10 👎🏻

Hi there, Unfortunately booking through a third-party can get a little bit tricky when it comes to cancellations, due to booking policies differing with different agents, and sadly who you booked through required the customer itself to reach out for a refund - we are gutted we couldn't be of assistance but the terms and conditions weren't ours. We wish we didn't have to cancel your Sunset Sail with us - it was out of our control due to our Annual Refit being delayed, which was explained over both phone call and text message. We are sorry you feel this way about our Customer Service.

Well worth it
Jul 2021
Enjoyed a lovely sail which we couldnt fault at all. Crew were very friendly and interesting to talk to. As it was a little choppy, we started with a river cruise then out onto the ocean to see the sunset. Totally loved the experienced of sitting out the front of the boat (you do have the option of sitting inside if you wish).

A sunset cruise with a difference.
Jul 2021 • Family
We did enjoy this, the hosts were friendly.
We didn’t realise we’d be sitting on the top of the boat on cushions. Navigating to go to the toilet whilst cruising meant walking along the outside rails of the boat which was a bit tricky! Didn’t feel that safe and it was a do at your own risk type activity! First drink complimentary and snacks good. I’d suggest a microphone for the captain to use when providing the commentary as it was heard to hear him.

Glad to hear your overall experience was enjoyable. We do have an indoor seating area available for guests to enjoy on our Sunset Sail and walking along the gangway is extremely safe. Thank you for your feedback.

Great sail!
A really beautiful boat and it felt like a special experience. Perfect amount of time. Forgot to give my 10year old that gets seasick his medication which was a mistake but crew were really helpful. Would recommend the Shaolin.
