We will leave Cairns in about a week to explore the reefs
to Cooktown; take a day or 2 there; then up to Lizard Island for 2 or 3 weeks.
Cairns is great for provisioning
and boat work. But very poor for marinas
close to town. The main marina is expensive and wont have uninsured boats, and has no public dock
. Cairns Cruising Yacht Squadron is nice and relaxed and right in the heart of all the marine
industries... but has precious few berths. They do, however have a good visitors berth for 1 hour. Good enough to load water
and duck out to the chandelry.
We provisioned today for 3 months. Ouch! LOL it was fun.
We just can't wait to be in the clear waters snorkeling every day and relaxing meeting cruisers.
And drinkin beer
