Maximum of 8 passengers on board ensuring a more tailored experience for our guests. 

Our crew consists of a qualified Skipper, Dive Instructor and Cook/Deckhand.

All 3 of them are Dive Instructors and are there to help you in any way they can and to ensure that you have the experience of a lifetime.

Enjoy freshly prepared meals on board, including our specialty - a lamb roast dinner that is cooked in our “Marine Hangi” (pronounced hungy).

The Hangi is a traditional New Zealand Maori method of cooking in an earth oven; we have adapted this concept with our own marine version.


During June through to September each year, a vast number of whales migrate from Antarctica to the Whitsundays to give birth to calves and mate. 

The most common whale that you will see during this period are Humpbacks although occasionally other types such as Minkies can be spotted.

During this time, you may experience the pleasure of waking up to the sound of them playing near by.


Being a deep draft vessel, our vessel is particularly roomy below decks. 

All cabins and the saloon area are fully air-conditioned to ensure comfortable temperatures in the heat of the tropics. 

We offer single and double accommodation in the shared cabin. 

If you would prefer more privacy you can upgrade to one of the private double or twin cabins for a fee.

There are two large bathrooms with electric toilets and freshwater showers. 

Our high capacity hot water system ensures that hot water is always available.

The tropical sun can be very severe, particularly on those with fair skin from cooler climates.  We provide the best of both worlds with ample deck space for sun baking and a huge permanently shaded rear deck where you can cool off. 

The rear deck also provides protection from the elements on those rare occasions when there is a tropical rain shower.
