Cairns Lunch Cruise - Waterside Dining

From AUD


A Cairns Lunch Cruise is the perfect way, to spend a perfect few hours in paradise. This is absolute waterfront dining at its finest. Board the 26m luxury sailing catamaran, Spirit of Cairns, at Marlin Marina before casting off for a 2.5 hour Cairns lunch cruise around Trinity Inlet and the waterfront precinct.

Wander the exterior decks to enjoy the fresh sea breezes and panoramic views of this coastal port city. Taking you from the marina, the Spirit of Cairns lunch cruise heads deep into the heart of Trinity Inlet with its winding tributaries and Admiralty Island. This is a side of Cairns not often seen.

Then enjoy the cool, comfortable air-conditioned interiors, with plenty of windows to ensure you don’t miss the passing scenery of this tropical port city with its Cruise Liner Terminal, marina and Esplanade precinct.

Our Cairns lunch cruise menu changes regularly, to take advantage of the freshest, local produce. It caters to vegetarians and has a range of gluten free items as well. The Lunch Menu can be downloaded here and although it may change, it will always include hot and cold dishes, as well as dessert items. The luxurious Spirit of Cairns sailing catamaran is fully licensed, selling a range of beverages, including tropical cocktails.
