Join us for fun and adventurous marine expeditions!
With the energy created by everyone in the crew, we can achieve so much together!
Learning sailing skills, skippering and seamanship is fascinating, exciting, and enables a “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?
Small ship sailing is the best adventure activity for developing teamwork in an authentic learning environment. We are careful to provide supported and sequenced experiences that enable complex skill development and a capacity for self efficacy.
We believe that personal development best happens through really intense, adventurous and challenging experiences; teaching us about positive communication, supportive teamwork, careful decision making and shared leadership.
Paying attention to our physical, social, mental, spiritual and emotional wellbeing as an expedition community, we learn to grow and to contribute the unique skills we each carry – and forward into all parts of our life!
We aim to keep these important skills and traditions alive, by developing tailored, partnered expedition style learning programs for Digital Detox, Sea School Certificate, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Rites of Passage/Adventure/Nature Connection, Skipper Training, Paddle Australia and School based curriculum outcomes.
“Papa” or the “Blue Peter” is a maritime signal flag representing the letter P; and has a long history as meaning “ready to sail” – calling the crew to action, when flown by ship preparing to get under way.
Maritime activities for youth development; such as conducted by Sea Scouts, Outward Bound, The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and other great programs are still evolving from the solid foundation of expeditionary learning approaches popularised by Kurt Hahn a lifetime ago.
