“Sunset cruise was AWESOME! Do it!”
We loved everything about this cruise. It’s great value for money with loads of charm, a friendly crew, cheap drinks and delicious nibblies. Had there not been cloudy skies this would have been perfect but we didn’t enjoy it any the less for the lack of a perfect sunset.

“Low Isles snorkelling trip”

Our trip to Low Isles aboard the Chinese junk Shaolin was an amazing and charming experience! The crew were very attentive and couldn’t do more for us . The morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea was delicious! Imagine seeing whales breaching , reef sharks , large Bat fish from the deck of this beautiful boat whilst under sail . Imagine enjoying a fruit platter on the deck sailing back to port ! Just perfect! We can recommend this trip to anyone who wants a wonderful day on the reef without the crowds . Thank you so much for a magical day out.

“Must do in Port Douglas”
Beautiful ship and lovely sunset cruise. We were lucky enough to happen upon a flier for this and were extremely glad we booked. Crew was amazing. Very friendly and offered great appetizers, beverages, and very laid back atmosphere. Felt like getting to go sail with good friends. :). Would definitely recommend and would take this trip again in the future.

“Great trip & great hosts”
We did a snorkelling tour out to the low isles and we had an absolutely fantastic time. Despite us being a large group Flynn and Paul made us all feel welcome and well taken care of. I’d recommend a trip on the Shaolin to anybody.

“What a day!!!”
We were lucky enough to have a friend who lived in Port Douglas (and had done all the reef cruises on offer here) recommend Shaolin. We are SO glad we went with the recommendation because we had such a beautiful day on what is an awesome boat with a great history.
