Let’s get started
Briefs commence at 8.30am on first day of charter.
On arrival you will undergo a comprehensive 4-hour briefing on your vessel, the area, anchorages, navigational and safety aspects of your holiday. We assist planning your itinerary and then take you on a familiarisation sail.
Any late arrivals after 10am on first day of charter will need to stay overnight at Abell Point Marina with relevant berthing fee charged. Your briefing sessions will be rebooked to commence at 8.30am the following day.

Daily Cruising Period & Radio Schedules
Marine Park regulations, dictate vessels to operate from 8am – 4pm daily. It is a requirement, for safety reasons, that you are anchored by 4pm each day.
We conduct twice daily radio schedules (“scheds”) to keep you informed of current weather conditions and log your daily movements and overnight anchorages.
If you would like extra sail training after your brief, an additional half day can be booked @ a rate of $250 per half day, whereby your briefer sails with you to a nearby location like Pioneer Bay before you continue to your first night’s anchorage. Full time Sail Guides can also be booked @ $350 per day if needed.
