Harbor / Marina
“Lady Douglas is a beautiful riverboat that has been taking tours of the Dickson Inlet since 1989. Most Port Douglas locals know this as a gem of a cruise, and many visitors have been coming back for over 25 years! If you're not a hardy sailor then this calm water cruise is an ideal option. taking in the wilderness and scenery of the mangroves, and the coastal and harbour views around the inlet entrance. Lady Douglas has 4 scheduled cruises that depart daily from the Port Douglas Marina. The 1.5hr relaxing cruise travels up the Dickson Inlet in search of wild crocodiles other wildlife in their natural habitat. Enjoy an informative and entertaining commentary by the skipper, accompanied by a cool drink and snacks onboard. The inlet is very calm and sheltered, perfect for those who tend to suffer with sea sickness but want to get out on the water. We highly recommend the sunset cruise too!”
