Speak to a local expert
Sail aboard one of the last operating Pearl Luggers in Australia.
"Willie", a 67’ Gaff Rig Schooner, modelled on the designs of early 1900 pearl luggers, was built to fish for Mother of Pearl shell Pinctada Maxima, which put Broome on the map and shaped the history of the region. "Willie" allows you to see how a traditional gaff rigged sailing vessel operates with all sails heaved up manually just as our forefathers did.

Now sailing through summer between Busselton, Meelup Beach and Eagle Bay. "Willie" offers an authentic sailing experience taking you with the winds to enjoy the beautiful southern coast.

Thank you for an amazing Birthday & Anniversary cruise on the 01/08/23 We enjoyed the net swim, sunset and relaxed atmosphere. The crew were great and the history of the Willie told by the Captain was interesting. It was great being picked up and dropped off at our accomodation which allowed us to have a few drinks on board.

If there was a 6th star on this system I'd be given Arthur and his crew every little bit of it! Hat's off to this professional team for making our job an absolute 'Breeze' photographing a recent wedding aboard this gorgeous vessel!

Epic experience! The boat is in incredible condition, you can tell how much the owners really care about it. The net was put out for us so you could lay in it while the boat slowly cruised along. Fresh oysters, great platters. Bar has a good selection of drinks to purchase. We were even offered to help lift the sails. Very friendly crew. And…. Of course the sunset from the boat is one you cannot miss! :) highly recommend!

Just got back from the sun set cruise. Absolutely fantastic. Boat was amazing. Staff were so attentive, friendly and professional. Just one of the highlights of our trip so far. Thanks to Guy (the skipper) and all the staff. Loved it.
