Your Full Moon Cruise begins at Magnetic Island Marina, Nelly Bay. One of the crew will meet you on Pepper's Blue on Blue restaurant deck and show you to Pilgrim, the beautiful 58-foot sailing yacht.

The Cruise:

After a full briefing to ensure everyone feels comfortable and safe, we'll head out of the marina and pull up the sails. Once under sail, you’ll be served a seasonal cocktail while you kick back and enjoy the scenery and the sailing.

The route of the cruise in Cleveland Bay will depend on the wind (strength and direction). The skipper will ensure that it is the most comfortable ride for the prevailing conditions and will also line the boat up for the perfect view of the sun setting over Magnetic Island and the moon rising over the ocean.

During the cruise, you’ll enjoy a local cheese platter served with a range of Tamburlaine Organic Wines, locally brewed beers from the Townsville Brewery, and soft drinks. (Wine selection includes Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Sparkling and Rose, please note we don't serve red wine onboard)

After around an hour, the sun will be starting to set and the sky will light up in beautiful colours, presenting the perfect opportunity for some photos. Shortly after this, you’ll be presented with another spectacle of the full moon rising over the ocean (subject to weather).

A few important things to note:

• The cruise times change each month depending on the sunset and the moonrise times. 

• Please remember we are at the mercy of mother nature and clouds may limit the visibility of the moon rise and/or the sunset. We cannot guarantee perfect conditions, however, we will do our best to ensure you enjoy a beautiful evening on the water with sailing and some nice nibbles and wine.
