Owner description: Sailaway Local and Visitors favorite, the original and authentic Low Isles and Sunset experiences since 1985. Sailaway sisters IV & V luxury 'Lagoon' Catamarans sailed from France offer luxury reef and island day trips at 8.30am and 1.00pm, only 1 hour sail to the protected Coral Cay Great Barrier Reef Island. Relax on the white sandy beaches, snorkel over the magnificent coral gardens in the blue lagoon and swim with turtles in their natural habitat. Take a trip on the glass bottom boat, enjoy a superb buffet lunch, before pure sailing back to Port Douglas. NEW Afternoon Cruise; Sail, island, snorkel and sunset combined, adults only. Absolutely the most relaxing experience on Great Barrier Reef 3 departures daily to suit you perfectly. Go Sailaway! SAILAWAY #1 SUNSET SAILING "MUST DO' $60 New Hot/Cold Canapes menu, complementary drink and fully licensed bar. Highly recommended for Adults, amazing value and ambiance

Snorkel day at the low isle. Crew were great, boat is lovely. Small group size was fantastic. Setting was beautiful. Full day snorkelling. Saw turtles, lemon sharks, numerous different kinds if fish. Great sail to and from the island. Would definitely do the same reef trip again when back at port douglas and would recommend it to friends and family.

I had an amazing day on the reef, my 5th trip out to the reef but by far the best. The small numbers are great - we had just 20 people on the boat so the service was very personal. The staff are extremely knowledgable and so very friendly!

We did the sunset cruise for our honeymoon, it was a lovely cruise on beautifully calm water.

The crew were lovely, supplying a drink on arrival and canapés throughout the evening.

It went really quick but we still had a lovely time, definitely worth doing :)

We were recommended this trip by a Palm Cove local and it did not disappoint.With a small group on board we sailed to the Low Isles for a fantastic day.The sailing trip there and the beach and the coral reef were amazing.
My wife and I and our two daughters had not snorkelled before and were shown the way by Stephanie who was lovely and very patient.The day included morning and afternoon teas as well as a seafood lunch.
This trip is a 'must do' and Sailaway is a class act. Thank you so much for a very memorable day.
