A unique opportunity for non sailors and families to get the feel of being “before the mast” when convicts were sailed out to the great southern land. Cheerful crew under a Kindhearted skipper made this a memorable outing while showing the challenges in raising sail and making way.A unique opportunity to steer a tall ship and climb the mast etc .
The crew was wonderful. We had problems getting to the pier & arrived after the gangplank was lifted. They saw us running, waited for us, then lowered the gangplank so we could board. They had tried to call us twice but my phone wasn’t working. They ere so gracious about our mistake.
It was a great way to see the harbour. Even though smokey, could still see all the main attractions. The guide was very interesting, but you were free to wander about the ship as well.
This was an original ship with some activity provided, such as pulling on ropes to haul sails. Allowed access to lower deck to see where crew lived.
My Father has difficulty with steps and unenven surfaces. The crew were amazing in helping him and this made the experience reassuring for all.
