Magnetic Island Twilight Sailing Cruise

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your 58-foot sailing yacht is perfect for a twilight cruise. She's a beautiful 58 foot sailing yacht with two deep cockpits and a large foredeck with plenty of space for everyone. For twilight cruises numbers are limited (up to 12 guests) to ensure a very personal service for all guests on board.
    At 4.15pm you will be met on the corner of the Peppers Boardwalk restaurant and the Magnetic Island Ferries car ferry ramp at the Nelly Bay Ferry Terminal and shown to the beautiful 58 foot sailing yacht, which is only a stones throw away from the meeting spot.
    Once on board you'll have a choice of places to sit - on the foredeck, on the beanbags in the middle or in one of the two cockpits at the back of the boat.  There's plenty of space for everyone to spread out and with a maximum of around fourteen guests it'll feel like your own private charter.
    On departing Magnetic Island Marina at 4.30pm you'll receive a quick introduction and safety brief before pulling up sails in Cleveland Bay.  Guests are always invited to get involved if you wish, or feel free to watch the crew, Paul & Clare, hoist the sails before turning off the engine to enjoy the peace.
    Once under sail, you will be offered a selection of Tamburlaine Organic Wines, which include Sauvignon Blanc, Vintage Blanc de Blanc, Chardonnay and a Petit Fleur (Rose). For non-wine drinkers, there is a locally brewed beer and soft drinks.  There is also a delicious cheese platter to enjoy with your wine - be sure to try the homemade pumpkin chutney!!!
    The route of the 90 minute cruise in Cleveland Bay will depend on the wind (strength and direction) and the skipper, Paul will ensure that it is the most comfortable ride for the prevailing conditions.  Paul will also line the boat up for the perfect view of the sun setting over Magnetic Island - make sure your cameras are ready!
    Once the sun has dropped below the island, we will drop the sails and motor back into Nelly Bay Harbour in time for your dinner plans.
