Highlights

  • It's so romantic on your honeymoon or with friends than raising a glass together and watching the technicolour splendour of a tropical setting sun on a sunset sail on the Great Barrier Reef around beautiful Magnetic Island.
  • The small group size of 12 guests on board means you'll almost feel as if you have the boat as a private charter to yourself. Book the Sip, Sail and Dine option to make the evening last longer.

Perfect Selfie

  • A selfie Titanic style is a must. Take this selfie early in the trip as if it is taken later remember to add the flash as all you’ll see is your silhouette against the sunset. 

Share your selfie on our Facebook page and tag your best Instagram pics with #barrierreefaustralia for your chance to be featured.

Itinerary

Magnetic Island

Whether staying on Magnetic Island or just stepping off the Townsville Sealink ferry, your sunset cruise yacht is only a short walk away as it is moored in Nelly Bay. 

You will be welcomed on board by the crew and after a safety briefing your afternoon sailing trip on the Great Barrier Reef will begin.

Magnetic Island (or Maggie Island, as the locals call it) is located 8 km and half an hour ferry ride from Townsville. 

The Wulgurukab Aboriginal people who originally inhabited the island for thousands of years called Magnetic Island ‘Yunbenun’.  

It is one of the most beautiful islands on the Great Barrier Reef that trails along the Australian Queensland shores.  

After the many day time activities that you can partake in on Magnetic Island, a sunset sailing cruise is a magical way to bid goodbye to another perfect day in paradise.  

Magnetic Island has 23 stunning secluded bays and for the sunset sail you will be sailing around the coast and into Cleveland Bay.
