Sunset Cruise - Airlie Beach

Unwind in the ambience of a Whitsunday sunset with Sundowner Cruises.


  • Relax and unwind on our purpose built catamaran
  • Enjoy stunning views of the Whitsundays coastline at sunset
  • Fully licensed bar onboard
  • The perfect way to end your day!

Sundowner Cruises operates from Coral Sea Marina North, Airlie Beach, where the Whitsunday islands provide the perfect backdrop for our sunset cruise.

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

Our Airlie Beach sunset cruise departs Tuesday to Sunday evenings and circumnavigates Pioneer Bay. As we have very little draft we are able to get up close and personal to many points of interest along the Whitsunday coastline.

Sundowner provides fantastic service in a friendly social atmosphere so you can truly unwind and bask in a fantastic Whitsunday sunset whilst enjoying your favourite tipple from our fully licensed bar.

Once the sun sets, enjoy the lights of Airlie Beach from the water before we make our way back to port.

Meeting time is 15 minutes prior to departure at the North Village roundabout, 'Meeting Point B', at Coral Sea Marina.

Excellent way to end the Day

Relaxing, calming, stunning sunset over Airlie beach. Lovely hosts. A perfect way to take in the scenery and harbour before an evening out.

Relaxing afternoon cruising the waters

From the meeting point where we were greeted in a warm and friendly manner to the time we got off the boat when the cruise finished, we had an absolute ball! Relaxing with amazing views followed by a beautiful sunset captured off this great experience. Highly recommend

Overcrowded, party boat with babies and kids

If you are planning on booking a quiet cruise with drinks Nd nibblies, book elsewhere. There was a massive party of probably 30 people celebrating a 40th birthday, plus probably 10+ babies and kids boarding the boat. Boat isn't big enough to accommodate that many people comfortably. If you want a crowded party boat, these are your guys.

Sunset Cruise

The loud roudy 30th birthday party was not pleasant. Some came close to going over board. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t the best.

From Sunset Cruise - Airlie Beach

A loud, rowdy 30th party on a Tuesday night was very unexpected! Normally weeknights are quiet, relaxed, friendly affairs. Fridays and Saturdays can bring out the party crowds, but not normally a Tuesday! We do apologise that it interfered with what should have been a civilised, pleasant experience for you.
