Cairns harbour cruises

See Cairns' best side by day or night on a Cairns harbour cruise.

There's more to Cairns than the Great Barrier Reef and some of it you can only explore by boat.

Take a scenic ride through Trinity Inlet, along winding waterways and a maze of mangroves, on one of these Cairns harbour cruises.

If you're lucky you might even get to see a croc.
