New charter boat for Sunshine Coast pelagics

We will be trialling a big new boat for pelagic birding trips off
Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast. We will be able to take up to 23 people
in what would be the largest and most comfortable boat doing pelagic
birding charters in Queensland waters. The deal I have hammered out gives
us 5 hours out on the shelf during a 9-hour day trip at reasonable cost.

We’ll have a huge deck, plenty of seating, hand rails and roofing for
protection against the elements. The deep-keeled, high speed monohull will
permit a relatively smooth ride, allowing us to go out in wind speeds of up
to 25 knots at least, reaching the continental shelf in as little as 2
hours.

The costs will be between $110 and $140 per person, depending on the
numbers. The inaugural trip will depart Mooloolaba Marina at 6.30am on
Sunday, July 30, returning at 3.30pm. Please let me know if you are
interested.
