Owner operators Chris and Ellen Pike have been involved in
long range passenger charter vessels based out of
Gladstone for over 26 years.
Chris has extensive knowledge of the Great Barrier Reefs – Swain Reefs, Capricorn Bunker Group, Shoalwater Bay and the Coral Sea areas.
Prior to charter work in Queensland Chris and Ellen had their own Boat Building establishment in Tasmania’s beautiful sunny port of St. Helens where they built Rock Lobster, Abalone and Scallop vessels for the fishing industry there. Chris has been a professional fisherman for over 30 years and works with the Tura which is a multipurpose vessel in Tasmanian and Victorian waters from January to August each year fishing for Rock Lobster, Passenger Charters and Research work and available in Queensland from mid September to December .
As a boat builder Chris converted both the “Tura” and “Eastern Voyager” to exacting standards for passenger safety and comfort and are both unique to other passenger charter vessels chartering out of the Gladstone harbour as our current certification allows us to work anywhere within Australia’s Economic Zone.
It's not always easy to get together a big enough group to
charter bigger vessels such as the M.V. Tura – 78ft and
M.V. Eastern Voyager 85ft
Once you have registered your interest in coming along on one of our organised charters, we can then confirm your trip once we have the minimum numbers required, your fishing trip is then only a deposit away.
If you are interested in joining an organised trip and want to experience some great fishing in some of these remote reefs.
Book your own private group on one of our long range
vessels offering extended charters to the Swain Reefs,
Capricorn Bunker Group, Coral Sea and Shoalwater Bay
areas in Queensland. We also offer extended charters in
Bass Strait and surrounding waters of Tasmania.
If you have another destination in mind please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you. Minimum nights for our charters are 3 up to a maximum of 14 nights and beyond.
Tura – offer groups of minimum 10>12 people Eastern Voyager offer groups of minimum 14>20 people. Numbers less than the minimum are welcome based on the minimum day rate of the vessels.
