Join South Passage for a weekend of liturature and stories, as we join forces with the Island Storytellers Festival! This voyage departs Manly from William Gunn Jetty on Friday 6th October at 5pm and sets sail for Peel Island. Over Saturday and Sunday, we will collect more people from the Southern Bay Islands, who will join us for “Whodunnit” and “Sea Shanty” sessions during the day. On the Saturday evening, you will have a private star-gazing session on board South Passage with our guest, the Astronomer Professor Duane Hamacher, who will unravel the night sky of the bay. After Sunday morning’s session, you will sail South Passage home to Manly Boat Harbour, disembarking by 4pm.Book Now
