South Passage

Adventure Under Sail



We have a proud tradition of fulfilling our vision:


"To create positive change in the lives of everyone who experiences South Passage - Adventure Under Sail".


During the last 10 years there have been 13,440 school students and 7,251 public passengers - a total of 20,691 people - sailing on Queensland's Tall Ship. We want that proud tradition to continue.


We will be commencing Day Sails soon, but multi-day School Voyages are our core business and what keeps us financially viable. Unfortunately, due to social distancing requirements, multi-day voyages are still some time off.


We are hoping to raise $50,000 to offset four months of operating costs (Insurance, mooring fees, safety equipment maintenance and compliance, audit fees and utilities).
