Departing: Magnetic Island

Magnetic Island Sunset Sail and Dinner
  • The ferry trip from Townsville to Magnetic Island is quite scenic
  • Relaxing on an idyllic sunset sail and then enjoying a 2 course meal at Peppers Blue on Blue on Magnetic Island.
  • The big yacht passenger numbers make the sun set sail feel intimate and private with plenty of space as you cruise around Magnetic Island.
  • Sample locally produced organic wines and local craft beer as you relax on the upper deck of the sail boat and watch the sky colours transend before you.
  • Ther are multiple places on the yacht for the perfect selfie and the perfect sunset with Magnetic Island in the background.

Leave Townsville behind for an evening and ride the Sealink ferry to Magnetic Island to meet your yacht for a sunset sail and dinner for two at Peppers Blue on Blue Resort on the Great Barrier Reef.

Sealink Ferry Townsville to Magnetic Island

The Sealink ferry from Townsville will take around 30 minutes or so to reach Magnetic Island so you can sit back and relax with a drink in hand and watch as the beautiful scenery of the islands of the Great Barrier Reef drift by your window.

You could come over to Magnetic Island earlier in the day and explore the islands attractions for yourself in a rental car or even book a night in the Peppers Resort and make a short break holiday.  

Sunset Sail Magnetic Island

At 4.15pm our crew will be there to meet you on the corner of the Peppers Boardwalk restaurant and the Fantasea car ferry ramp, right next to the Nelly Bay Ferry Terminal and they will show you the way to our  beautiful custom built 58 foot sailing yacht.

Once all guests are settled on board you will have a choice of places to sit - on the foredeck, on the beanbags in the middle or in one of the two cockpits at the back of the boat.  

Our 58 foot yacht has plenty of space for everyone to spread out and with a maximum passenger number of only around twelve guests it feel like you are on your very own private charter boat tour.

Once everyone is settled in and we are under sail, our crew will begin serving a selection of Tamburlaine Organic Wines, which include Sauvignon Blanc, Vintage Blanc de Blanc, Chardonnay and a Petit Fleur (Rose).

For those non-wine drinkers, there is a locally brewed beer and soft drinks.

To accompany the beverages we have a delicious cheese platter with homemade pumpkin chutney.

Our Magnetic Island sunset cruise will be for 90 minutes in Cleveland Bay dependant on the wind (strength and direction) and the skipper, Paul will ensure that it is the most comfortable ride for the prevailing conditions.

A highlight of the trip or the best selfie opportunity is when the skipper lines the boat up for the perfect view of the sun setting over Magnetic Island.

Once the sun has descended behand the island, we drop the sheets and motor back into Nelly Bay Harbour in time for your dinner reservation at 6.15 pm at the Boardwalk Restaurant at Peppers Blue on Blue Resort
