Are you ready to join our fun and adventurous marine expeditions?
Together, we can achieve much more that you might imagine…
Developing sailing skills and seamanship is really interesting; beyond just learning to tie a range of knots! What do you think might be most memorable? Smelling the breath of a dugong? Starting a fire with sticks? Sailing through a squall? Gazing at the night sky with new friends?
We believe the most important part is genuine personal development that happens through intense experiences. Adventures teach us about positive communication, supportive teamwork, careful decision making and shared leadership. These are vital skills and they are applicable to all situations…
The “Blue Peter” is a maritime signal flag for the letter P, which also has a secondary meaning; calling the crew to action when it is flown by ship in harbour, being… ready to sail!
Consequently the Blue Peter has been long been used as a symbol of maritime activities for youth development. Sea Scouts, Outward Bound and many other programs evolved from this approach which was popularised by Kurt Hahn.

We are working to keep these important traditions alive, by offering tailored expedition style training programs eg. for Sea School Certificate, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, School based curriculum, Skipper training and Adventure/Nature Therapy approaches.
Our four day school holiday adventure programs are a great way to try it out, as a fun way for digital detox and building real friend/nature connections! We conduct at least one trip every school holiday… so get on board!

“When something is really hard, I think back to something I did on the camp and how it challenged me and then it gave me the awesome feeling….I did it and it felt great!”
