Chris and Ellen Pike
Owner operators Chris & Ellen have been involved in long range passenger charter vessels out of Gladstone for over 28 years.
Chris has extensive knowledge of the Great Barrier Reefs Swain Reefs, Capricorn Bunker Group, Shoalwater Bay and the Coral Sea areas in Queensland, as well as extensive knowledge in professional fishing, Research and Charters in Tasmania, Victoria to South Australia.
As a boat builder, Chris converted the Eastern Voyager to exacting standards for passenger safety and comfort under the NSCV code in 2008 staying within all Survey and Registration codes which enables us to work in different states if required.
Danny has been involved in the long-range passenger charter service and research charters for over 22 years and many of you would have met him when he was a deckhand starting out at 16 years of age.
Danny has been with Chris and Ellen for over 15 years, skippered the Tura for 8 years and is now Master and part owner of the Eastern Voyager. He has extensive knowledge of all areas of the Swain Reefs, Coral Sea and Shoalwater Bay (which is his favourite area to charter – he is a very keen mud crabber).
Danny has voyaged and skippered on all our southern charters and research trips in Tasmania, Victoria and South Australia.
