Here at Snapping Tours, not only do we operate wildlife tours, but we also operate SUNSET 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 2.5 hours and the bar will open at 5:00pm, enough time for you to purchase your drinks and get ready for the Sunset 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 Sunset Cruises, so please make sure you gather your mates together and book!
