A Cairns Lunch Cruise is the perfect way, to spend a perfect few hours in paradise. This is absolute waterfront dining at its finest. Board the 26m luxury sailing catamaran, Spirit of Cairns, at Marlin Marina before casting off for a 2.5 hour Cairns lunch cruise around Trinity Inlet and the waterfront precinct.

Wander the exterior decks to enjoy the fresh sea breezes and panoramic views of this coastal port city. Taking you from the marina, the Spirit of Cairns lunch cruise heads deep into the heart of Trinity Inlet with its winding tributaries and Admiralty Island. This is a side of Cairns not often seen.

Then enjoy the cool, comfortable air-conditioned interiors, with plenty of windows to ensure you don’t miss the passing scenery of this tropical port city with its Cruise Liner Terminal, marina and Esplanade precinct.

Our Cairns lunch cruise menu changes regularly, to take advantage of the freshest, local produce. It caters to vegetarians and has a range of gluten free items as well. The Lunch Menu can be downloaded here and although it may change, it will always include hot and cold dishes, as well as dessert items. The luxurious Spirit of Cairns sailing catamaran is fully licensed, selling a range of beverages, including tropical cocktails.

With our Spirit of Cairns Chef Extraordinaire Zee taking off on maternity leave soon, we wish to introduce our new Chef Jeff to the team!

"With over Twenty-five years of culinary experience, sixteen years of these in leadership roles, I am an ambitious and creative chef who has a genuine passion for food.

I am methodical and organized with a solid understanding of safety procedures and HAACP. My leadership is collaborative and inspiring and I have a passion for team and self-development.

From 2008- to present, I have been the primary care giver for my two children, hence I focused on consulting and catering via my business Jetfood as this enabled a balanced approach to my two key passions – Food and Family. Now that my children (Cooper 10 and Grace 8) are older, I am excited to be back in full swing. I believe the opportunities are endless with the Tusa group and Spirit Of Cairns, I believe this will continue my career journey, and hope to be part of the catering team with the other boats.

Am I funny, the funniest guy you will meet… No not really, I can’t tell jokes, so I’m not starting off as a good pirate?!!

My Career is endless and I feel it isn’t over just yet, Ben O’Donoghue, Jamie Oliver, Curtis Stone Pete Evans and Manu, just some of the chefs I’ve been around. I did Ready Steady Cook on ch10 for 12 episodes. Did 120 cooking demonisations for LG around the country, have been the private chef for Adam Scott (professional golfer) for 4 summers. Cook for the 20 world leaders at G20 summit in Brisbane, private access to the best president America have had in 3/4 decades Barack Obama.

I love the beach, surfing, endless powder runs on my snowboard, the snow, riding bikes with my family. Love dining out when we get the chance and my favourite food ramen and pork!!"
