The five hour day sailing cruises are great value for money and include lunch with a complimentary drink and either morning or afternoon tea. Includes Island stop at Peel Island or North Stradbroke Island.

Peel Island

The heritage listed Peel Island is only about an hour sail away from Cleveland. Horseshoe Bay which is on the southern side of the island and provides sheltered waters and a sandy beach to explore which provides a wonderful location to go for a walk, play beach cricket or volleyball. Also within view is the rusted, partially submerged wreck of the Scottish built dredger ‘Platypus’.

North Stradbroke Island

North Stradbroke Island is an island that lies within Moreton Bay just 30 kilometres southeast of the capital Brisbane. It is the second largest sand island in the world. On the island there are three small towns, a number of lakes and beaches along most of the seaward coastline with rocky outcrops at Point Lookout. The One Mile anchorage at Dunwich is a great place to stop and relax with a drink at the Little Ship Club.

LAND WHALE WATCHING

Witness the majestic gentle giants of the sea from Point Lookout which is considered to the best land based whale watching viewing platform in Queensland

Embark from Cleveland on a purpose built sailing catamaran and enjoy a leisurely sail to North Stradbroke Island.

Feast on a buffet lunch which includes roast chicken, beef, ham, cheese, pasta salad, bread rolls, garden salad and a complimentary drink.

Once at the island you will be taken to Point Lookout’s sea gazing platform where thousands of Humpback Whales past by the during the annual migration north starting sometime in May through to July to breed in the warmer waters during winter and then travel back south with their calves from August to October.

The North Gorge at Point Lookout is a one km walk that explores some of the most beautiful spots that the Queensland’s coastline has to offer. The Gorge is home to many different types of Australian wildlife such as kangaroos and koalas. End the day with a sail back to Cleveland as the sun sets and enjoy some afternoon tea.

Whale Watching is for a limited season only

  • This is my fourth cruise with Rob and the crew from Aria and once again, couldn't fault it. If I could give 6 stars I would. The service is incredible (as always) with Rob making a special trip in the tender to give me a bottle of water, and upon seeing me snorkeling in the wrong area, took me to the reef area of Peel Island and waited while I snorkeled - just in case I should get into trouble. If that isn't 6 star service, I don't know what is? The boat is spacious, clean and new, the food is great and Rob's knowledge of the bay is outstanding and his jokes - well you will find out. It's so relaxing and enjoyable, I would recommend this cruise to everyone (and I do!) Thanks Rob and Steve for a great Australia Day! See you next time!
  • Thanks Rob and team! That was a fabulous cruise to St Helena. Perfect conditions for relaxing cruise. Great selection of food. Informative and fascinating guided tour of the Island. Will be back for the Peel Island Cruise for sure!
  • Thank you Rob and the team. Trip to Peel Island this morning. Crew are friendly, not sure about Rob's jokes though lol! Here's one for you... "This morning, I signed up to a Ukranian Dating Agency, I now have a chick in Kiev!" Highly recommend Aria Cruises, morning tea and lunch provided, a great trip. Richard
  • This was by far the best day! It makes a 5 star seem too limiting! If your looking for a cruise where you are made to feel welcomed, relaxed with adventure and breathtaking views this one’s for you! The owners take such care and pride in the boat, whisking you away from the busy Brisbane sights. After spending time on the water we toured Stradbrooke with views and info on the humpback whales, gorgeous trail around the cliffs and a visit to a local pub before returning to the ship. The journey back was a blast with a delicious lunch, great company and lots of laughs. We will be back!!! Thank you so much!
  • We had an amazing 40th Birthday with Aria Cruise. Rob his staff & crew were excellent and kept in the loop all the times. The facilities,food, drinks no issues at all. We had a great time and the Aria cruise made it a memorable day of our lives. Thank you once again Rob & Aria Cruise. Keep up the good work.
