Cairns Sightseeing Cruise

Sit back and relax on our Cairns sightseeing cruise, as we take you on an adventure cruise in Trinity Inlet. This watery landscape will impress you with its diversity of life and mangrove forests, a world away from the nearby city but only a few minutes by boat. Saltwater crocodiles can sometimes be seen basking on the muddy banks, before silently sliding into the water to hunt some of the many fish species that live here, including mangrove jacks and barramundi. The tidal watermark is a tangle of roots, reaching into the waters to stabilise their parent plants. Your friendly and knowledgeable captain and guide will ensure you don’t miss a minute of it, providing an engaging and informative commentary throughout your 75 minute Cairns sightseeing cruise.

Come one, come all for a sightseeing cruise in Cairns’ Trinity Inlet. We take you into the mangroves, for wildlife watching and waterfront views.

The generally sheltered waters of Trinity Inlet provide a calm river cruise. Depart the marina, cruise past the waterfront hotels and naval base and head into the mangrove estuary. Your seat is shaded, your surroundings are scenic and we explore some of Cairns’ hidden treasures.


This is a place where the wild things are, so make sure you keep your camera at the ready. Saltwater crocodiles cruise the waterways, sea eagles soar above and there’s even abandoned boats. This is seeing a different side to Cairns, learning more of its maritime history.


Every good adventure includes a guide. Yours is also the captain, and our captains are locals who are passionate about sharing the history and nature of our beautiful home with you.


Our Cairns sightseeing cruise is fun for everyone. There’ll be smiles, there’ll be jokes and for sure, there’ll be lots of interesting stories. We even provide a soft drink drink for you.
