Sail the picturesque waters of Moreton Bay with Aria Cruises and keep a look out for the different marine life in the area such as dolphins, turtles, dugongs and much more.

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.


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
