Luxury Boat Charters - Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef, stretching over 2500 kilometres, offers some of the safest and most beautiful cruising waters in the world. Remote and yes 'a long way to travel', but that would be to miss this rare untouched playground offering resorts and deserted islands to explore, coral cays with calm clear waters surrounded by coral gardens and brightly coloured marine life.
Cruises designed for comfort, relaxation or adventure depart anywhere along the East Coast of Australia.
Have us tailor design an itinerary just for you! Special itineraries can incorporate diving, sightseeing, bird watching, rainforest walks or just cruising the nearby or remote islands and cays. We can arrange charters for a full day or half day, or if you have a little more time, an extended live aboard charter will provide you with a closer insight to this tropical wonderland. We have vessels available for charter to accommodate either groups or individuals with varied budgets starting from $295 per person.

From Broome were planning a "Kimberley Adventure" cruise where we will visit all the classic icons including the King George river and falls, the horizontal waterfalls and Cape Levque. 2008 will be our exploratory cruise time, seeking and looking for places to include in the 2009 scheduled cruises, so if you want to come along for gentle cruise through the Top End with no fixed itinerary and at rock bottom prices, give us a call.
