The Denison Star, a magnificent 107-foot motor cruiser hewn from Tasmanian Huon pine, glides out of Hamilton Island Marina most evenings for Cruise Indigo's small-group, starlit dinner cruise around the island's sheltered waters. As night falls, the skipper drops anchor in a scenic, secluded spot so that there's no rocking as you dine. You can start with sunset daiquiris and canapés, and then order from a four-course à la carte menu of Modern Australian dishes
as your complimentary bottle of wine is uncorked. Stargaze from the upper deck as you cruise back to base. Leave your high-heels at home and bring a jacket; it can get chilly on deck during the cooler months.
