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
