After a full briefing to ensure everyone feels comfortable and safe, we'll have a chat to find out what you are looking for from the day, then head out of the marina and pull up sails and go sailing.

3.   Lunch is served on disposable (& compostable) platters

THE CRUISE

Enjoy a leisurely sail to one of the bays of Magnetic Island. We'll sail for about an hour before dropping anchor in one of the bays.  

You are welcome to have a go at steering the yacht or just striking the pose behind the wheel for your new profile pic! If you are interested in sailing, the crew, Clare & Paul, would be delighted to get you involved pulling ropes or teaching you a little bit more about the sport. Alternatively, you can just kick back and relax in one of the bean bags.

The destination will depend on the wind conditions on the day but is often Radical Bay, Florence Bay or Arthur Bay.  

Once at anchor, you'll have some time to yourselves, when you can chill on the boat, explore the beach, have a swim or play/relax on the giant inflatable mat. If the weather permits (on light wind days) you may be able to go for a snorkel and check out the fringing reef and fish.

After you've had some fun or just kicked back and relaxed, we'll serve lunch on board, buffet-style. 

Lunch includes a selection of BBQ meats and locally caught prawns served with homemade salads and bread rolls. Also included are Australian organic wines, premium beers and soft drinks with lunch and on the sail back to Nelly Bay.

After lunch, we'll pull up anchor and sail back to the marina enjoying the Magnetic Island scenery as we go.

During the cruise, we usually spot some of the local wildlife - the beautiful brahminy kites, the batfish or large Cod and in season, if we're lucky we'll see one or two of the migrating humpback whales.

 

THE YACHT

Pilgrim is a luxury 58-foot yacht and is perfect for guests of all ages.

She is large, stable and comfortable and there's plenty of space for everyone to spread out on board with seating in four main areas - the foredeck, the bean-bags or in one of the two cockpits. 

Be sure to have a peek downstairs too; she is a stunning vessel with beautiful cabinetry and heaps of space below also.

 

THE FOOD

We proudly serve quality Australian and local produce on every cruise. 

Lunch is served on board, buffet-style and includes a selection of locally caught prawns, premium sausages, and chicken skewers served with homemade salads with fresh bread rolls. Lunch is all freshly prepared on board. 

You'll also enjoy complimentary wine or beer with your lunch and for the sail back home. (Note, we don't serve red wine onboard)

Our beers are from the local brewery in Townsville, the Townsville Brewery. We serve their Legends Lager, an easy-drinking lager and their Tropical Coast Pale Ale, a slightly fruitier beer.

We serve premium wines from Tamburlaine Organic Wines in New South Wales. They are the largest organic wine producer in Australia. The grapes are grown predominantly in Orange with the cellar door and winery in the Hunter Valley, just north of Sydney. Another essential feature for us is it is a family-run winery.

If you are allergic to anything or have special dietary requirements - please advise at time of booking. There may be a small additional charge to accommodate special diets which we will confirm with you via email after booking.

 

NUMBER OF GUESTS

We keep the number of guests to a minimum (between six and twelve) to ensure plenty of room for everyone to spread out and also a very personalised service from your hosts. Pilgrim can take up to 24 guests under licence so with only 12 guests everyone is very comfortable.

We can visit up to two bays on the trip, and recommend the following bays as the best options - Arthur Bay, Florence Bay or Radical Bay.

​All produce is sourced locally, wherever possible, and is of the highest quality.  We serve lunch on board, although if you prefer we can set you up on the beach with some champagne and the antipasto platter so you can enjoy one of the stunning beaches for a little while.

Gift voucher for a Sip&Sail Sunset Cruise at Magnetic Island

Set sail aboard a beautiful 58 foot sailing yacht for a memorable sunset cruise in the magical waters surrounding Magnetic Island.  Sip Australian organic wines or premium beers accompanied by a selection of delicious cheeses while the sun sets over Magnetic Island.


HIGHLIGHTS

At 4.15pm guests will be met on the corner of the Peppers Boardwalk restaurant and the Fantasea car ferry ramp at the Nelly Bay Ferry Terminal and shown to the beautiful 58 foot sailing yacht, which is only a stones throw away from the meeting spot.

Once on board there are a choice of places to sit - on the foredeck, on the beanbags in the middle or in one of the two cockpits at the back of the boat.  There's plenty of space for everyone to spread out and with a maximum of around fourteen guests it'll feel like a own private charter.

On departing Magnetic Island Marina at 4.30pm there's a quick introduction and safety brief before pulling up sails in Cleveland Bay.  Guests are always invited to get involved, or just watch the crew, Paul & Clare, hoist the sails before turning off the engine to enjoy the peace.

Once under sail, a selection of Tamburlaine Organic Wines is available, which include Sauvignon Blanc, Vintage Blanc de Blanc, Chardonnay and a Petit Fleur (Rose). For non-wine drinkers, there is a locally brewed beer and soft drinks.  There is also a delicious cheese platter to enjoy with the wine - and of course the infamous homemade pumpkin chutney!!!

The route of the 90 minute cruise in Cleveland Bay will depend on the wind (strength and direction) and the skipper, Paul will ensure that it is the most comfortable ride for the prevailing conditions.  Paul will also line the boat up for the perfect view of the sun setting over Magnetic Island - perfect for photo opportunities!

Once the sun has dropped below the island, the sails will be dropped and after a quick motor back into Nelly Bay Harbour in time for dinner.  For a special dinner after the cruise then look no further than Peppers Boardwalk Restaurant.
