Our 108 foot (32.92m) Charter Boat departs Mackay or on request the Whitsundays or Cairns for groups to dive, snorkel, fish with 16 Guests on extended liveaboard charters of 4 days or more. We explore some of the most remote and beautiful destinations on the Great Barrier Reef others never see.
We have been plying the waters off Mackay on the Great Barrier Reef for 30 years and have discovered some of the world’s most amazing diving and snorkelling locations others have never experienced with the commercial group charter boat tours.
Our private charter boat tours are highly personalised and our speciality is catering for big family groups, corporate fishing charters, dive club groups, and groups of friends wanting to get away for a special occasion and to see the wonderful remote locations of the Great Barrier Reef off Mackay.
Our minimum daily rate is based on 16 liveaboard guests and we can fully cater for up to 24 guests in our 12 comfortable cabins.
All private charter boat tours are for a minimum of 4 days at a time and guest rooms are serviced on a daily basis just like a floating hotel.
All cabins are ensuite and air-conditioned with hot showers making it the perfect mother ship for any type of charter.
Our charter boat is permitted to ply the length and breadth of the Great Barrier Reef from our home port of Mackay or we may re-locate to another location of our guests choosing.
We also provide extended fishing charters from Cairns for 7 days or more for remote region fishing up north towards the Torres Strait Islands.
We head up near Lizard Island and move north toward Cape Melville, the Flinders Group and Princess Charlotte Bay.
If you are a group who like to fish then choosing our private charter boat is your first good decision as we have been fishing the Great Barrier Reef for 30+ years.
Guests are permitted to bring along their own fishing gear or we may provide fishing equipment on request.
Some of our guests like to go spearfishing others are happy to trawl, beach fish or bottom bash for the big reds.
Due to our longevity of chartering boats on the Great Barrier Reef we know the locations that look amazing both on film and in real life so we are the perfect partner for film crews, researchers and photographers.
Wildlife Tour on the Great Barrier Reef
Whale watching, seeing dolphins, swimming with turtles and Mantarays and the occasional dugong is all in a day’s work here on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
We know the time of year and the destinations to find the marine life on the outer sections of the reef.
Diving conditions are great all year round on the Great Barrier Reef with visibility running between 15m to 30m and the water temperature usually between 24c and 30c.
We have the unique opportunity of wreck diving, night dives, deep dives in trenches and swim-throughs as well as ravines and canyons.
Snorkellers are also well catered for on both shallow waters around coral bommies and island walks.
Snorkelers enjoy themselves just as much as the divers on the Great Barrier Reef.
If you simply cannot get enough seafood you certainly will on one of our liveaboard private charter boat tours as we have a fresh catch every single day.
Your morning begins with a continental breakfast then a cooked breakfast.
Morning tea is always something to look forward to with hot scones, pikelets and cakes.
Lunch is another feast by the onboard chef with a selection of salads and accompanients
In the afternoon its bar snacks with some finger foods like fresh caught fish and seafood
And for dinner it’s a more formal affair in the dining room for a 3 course meal
