We can access the calm water areas near Port Douglas so there is no chance of seasickness or interruption due to strong winds. Lady Douglas also has a toilet on board.

Friday Night Live Music Cruise

Friday Night Live Music Cruise runs in peak season (June-Nov). Enjoy local, live acoustic tunes as you meander along the waterfront, soaking up the night lights and ambience of the waterfront and the township. A complimentary beverage, fresh local prawns and nibbles are included. This is a great social option for groups or parties. 


Port Douglas is a perfect place for a romantic wedding – especially at St Mary’s by the Sea or under the palms by the waterfront in Ana Park. Both are adjacent to the historic sugar wharf and right next to the public wharf.

Lady Douglas can collect passengers from the public wharf, providing an enjoyable river cruise with beverages and nibbles, then transfer guests to reception venues such as the sugar wharf or waterfront or marina restaurants. Drinks can be provided and catering or live music can be arranged if necessary.

In addition, Lady Douglas proves to be an exceptional and original venue for ceremonies or receptions.




Lady Douglas is fully licensed and can cater for both day and night-time events. A music system is on board or live music can be arranged.

We've had memorable parties on board ranging from children’s birthday parties croc-spotting in the morning, to hens or bucks nights, corporate events and company Christmas parties.


Groups, clubs, large families and corporate teams have included Lady Douglas in their Port Douglas itinerary as a private and easily accessible river cruise, departing right in the heart of town for convenience. 

Small groups can also join one of our scheduled cruises.
