Hervey Bay Sunset Cruise

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    After pickup from Hervey Bay accommodations, your Sunset Cruise departs from Great Sandy Straits Marina.

    Travel along the pristine waterways between Fraser Island and mainland Queensland, watching for dolphins and turtles as you admire the sunset over Hervey Bay.  Enjoy fresh seafood and non-seafood dishes, which include hot and cold finger foods served on the deck so you don’t miss any of the views. Items may include Hervey Bay king prawns, mixed gourmet pastries, fresh half-shell oysters, half-shell Hervey Bay scallops, kebabs, and crumbed or tempura fish bites (other items may be substituted or added). 

    As the evening continues, take in the twinkle of the city lights along the 8 miles (13 km) of beachfront that is the Charlton Esplanade. Cruise past Urangan Pier, and admire the glow of the harbor precinct as the sky darkens. Specific destinations are determined by tides and weather conditions. One complimentary drink of your choice is included - yes, even the premixed spirits.  Additional drinks are available for purchase on board at affordable prices.

    When you return to the marina, you are free to continue your night independently at a number of establishments in Hervey Bay, or head back to your accommodation.

    We love our sunset cruises too! Not much better than some great company, great music, delicious nibbles, a glass of your favourite tipple and a stunning sunset over the water. Actually, if you add a few humpback whales, it certainly adds to it. See you...More

    I think so but, like any boat, you would want to keep eyes on your toddler at all times.
