Melbourne's Tall Ship - Enterprize

Melbourne's Tall Ship - Enterprize provides a range of opportunities to experience sailing on a tall ship in its program from October until June 2014. If you have ever dreamt of going to sea on a traditional tall ship, now is the perfect time. Enterprize has monthly public sails from Melbourne Docklands, Williamstown and Geelong, with sails from Portarlington (near Geelong) and Blairgowrie and Rye (Mornington Peninsula) in summer months. The most popular Enterprize sails are the shorter daytime one hour sails and twilight sails of one and a half hours for up to forty people conducted most weeks. These are suitable for people of all ages from young children to people well into their 'seniors' years. There are a number of Overnight Adventure sails and half day Bay Cruises scheduled for the lower Yarra and the northern end of Port Phillip. For a multi-day tall ship experience Enterprize has a unique lifetime experience with a trip to Port Welshpool in late November. This is a one week trip departing Docklands on 21 November, sailing to Port Welshpool via Port Phillip, Bass Strait and Wilson's Promontory. Enterprize is a wooden topsail schooner operated by the not for profit Enterprize Trust. The ship is an authentically rigged replica of John Pascoe Faulkner's Enterprize which brought the first permanent settlers to settle Melbourne in 1835. Enterprize is also available for School, Corporate and Special Occasion charters. Advance bookings are recommended. Tickets for shorter trips are available from ship 30 minutes prior to sailing, where not booked out. Go to their website or call for further information and online bookings.

Freedom Bay Cruises

Families, visitors and locals can enjoy a relaxing cruise around Corio Bay on board Freedom Bay Cruises. Freedom is a 14 and a half metre catamaran with upper and lower decks and viewing areas on the bow and stern. There are options to be outside or under cover. The one hour cruise is a great introduction to Geelong's award winning waterfront and history. During the cruise you will see yachts under sail and ship movements in the port. Dolphins and jellyfish are a highlight for everyone and the kids can have their photo taken in the captain's chair at the helm. A commentary and slide show enhances the cruise experience. Cruises depart from Steampacket Quay, near Cunningham Pier, Geelong at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Tickets can be purchased at the boat. Cruises operate on weekends from September to May and bookings are recommended on the day. A licensed bar and kiosk is open during the cruise to purchase drinks, chips and souvenirs. Access to the vessel is via a gangway and four steps and there is ample seating for up to 60 passengers. The cruise is suitable for all ages with room for prams and wheelie frames. Freedom also operates group cruise Monday to Friday offering morning and afternoon teas and lunches. Private parties can be booked for up to 60 passengers seven days a week.
