Cruises & Events


Here at Snapping Tours, not only do we operate wildlife tours, but we also operate BOOZE CRUISES! Now this is a little different to spotting wildlife; it more so involves bringing your mates on board, heading to our on board bar and purchasing your favourite beverages, whilst enjoying the spectacular scenery the Johnstone River has to offer! From cocktails to spirits, beers to wine, there is plenty available for everyone! If you don’t fancy a drink, we have you covered! There are also non-alcoholic drinks to purchase, such as soft-drink, juice and water!

We are the only floating bar in Innisfail, located only 1 hour south of Cairns and 40 minutes from Mission Beach. Our 50ft catamaran is big enough to comfortably fit 30 people on board, with plenty of walking space, to view the Johnstone River from different angles.

The cruise runs for 1.5 hours and the bar will open 30 minutes before the cruise departs, enough time for you to purchase your drinks and get ready for the Booze Cruise. As we arrive back, the bar will remain open, so you are welcome to stay on board to purchase more drinks from our on board bar!

How does this sound? Pretty good to me! We would love to see you on board the Booze Cruises, so please make sure you gather your mates together and book!

The ‘ Cruise Event’ operates each friday. We also operate these types of cruises during the month too, so make sure to stay tuned on this page, as we will list the monthly cruises below. Alternatively, please check out our Facebook Page for upcoming cruise events.
