Maria Island and East Coast Five Day Cruise

Kettering Trip Overview

The spectacular National Park offers magnificent  bush walks, challenging climbs, snorkelling, swimming and abundant wildlife.

Being on the ocean at night and away from the city’s glow is spectacular. When looking at the water’s reflection stars beam back at the twinkling stars above. You may even see the glow of phosphorescence as our boat glides through the waters that team with marine life. You will have time to reflect and relax after an adventurous days activity on water or land.

The trip allows time for those who want to expand their sailing experience and knowledge. Our qualified skipper and crew will happily provide instruction on all facets of sailing and cruising in coastal waters. Alternately you can  just sit back and relax in comfort and take in the sumptuous scenery.
