Thank you for an enjoyable night. I wish we had left 20 minutes earlier to capture the sunset though.

Response From Barrier Reef Australia

Thank you for your review Barb and we are delighted you enjoyed your Cairns Sunset Cruise. The cruise does offer beautiful views of the waterways, mountains and city scapes but does not always provide the mix of beautiful sunset colours each afternoon (somethings are just out of our control) We do look forward to seeing you travelling to Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef again soon.
