Come immerse yourself in the rich culture of the region. The history is so rich with tales of the early head hunters and culture more akin to Papua New Guinea than mainland early Australians. From the site where captain cook claimed the continent for Mother England, to embattlements still in place from World War 2 and pearling history which continues to this day. The place where aboriginal native title emanated from with the now famous Mabo claim, an incredible list of well-known achievers from a small part of our population! (latest census 7000). Couple all the above with spectacular scenery, world class fishing and snorkelling, our experienced crew, many of whom have spent a great deal of time in the area and in conjunction with local guides and you set the scene for a very memorable journey of discovery into a part of our country that is largely unknown to the majority.
