Are you ready to join us for fun and adventurous marine expeditions?
Spending time building up our crew, we can achieve so much together!
Learning sailing skills and seamanship is fascinating and enables the “level up” from knowing a heap of useful knots. What do you think might be most memorable? Smelling the breath of a dugong? Starting a fire with sticks? Reefing the sails before a white squall? Gazing at the night sky with your new friends?
We believe that personal development best happens through really intense, adventurous experiences, teaching us about positive communication, supportive teamwork, careful decision making and shared leadership.
These are vital skills, needed in all parts of our life!
The “Blue Peter” is a maritime signal flag as 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!
The flag has long been used as a symbol of maritime activities for youth development; such as Sea Scouts, Outward Bound, (ahem, a British nautical themed TV show) and other great programs that have evolved from the expeditionary learning approaches espoused by Kurt Hahn.

We keep these important traditions alive, by developing tailored, partnered expedition style training programs for Rites of Passage, Adventure/Nature Therapy, Learn to Sail courses, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Paddle Australia, Skipper training and School based curriculum outcomes.
“I felt safe and comfortable at all times when aboard each boat because there was always a leader who knew what they were doing.”
“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!”
