Coral Trekker

Nothing matches the feeling of standing on a square-rigger with the wind in your face and the smell of salt in the air as you watch the huge red sails billowing aloft.

Feel the warm wooden deck beneath your feet and the tropical sun above as the Coral Trekker sails you away for the adventure of a lifetime. All distinctions of age, gender and nationality disappear in a communion of yells and laughter as you haul ropes and prepare to set sail for the Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands aboard this lovingly restored 23 metre sailing ship. Built in Norway in 1939, this traditional sailing ship displays a unique and interesting character. With topsails, t’gallants and yardarms she has all the old world charm and romance of yesteryear.

Action packed or relaxed! Join the crew in the rigging or just sit back on the wide decks and relax in the tropical sunshine. The itinerary is flexible and unhurried setting aside lots of time for strolling secluded beaches, snorkelling, scuba diving and hiking national park trails. Coral Trekker has a scuba diving compressor and gear on board. An independent dive instructor can cater for novices as well as qualified divers.
