GROUP BOOKINGS ONLY

By chartering for your own group, you can create your own itinerary, and let Eastern Voyager guide you on a trip of a lifetime to the Shoalwater Bay or Swain Reefs. Visit the diverse Shoalwater Bay for crabbing and fishing, or venture out to the Swain Reefs for some great offshore fishing – it’s your choice. The Swain Reefs have over 1,000 separate coral reefs within its boundaries for the keen angler to try their skills in both the shallow and deep reefs as well as drift fishing from the big boat. This is some of the best sport fishing you can get off the Queensland coastline. Join us for a self-guided tour, and make this a trip of a life time. This is an 8 day 7 night trip because we leave on a Saturday afternoon, and return the following Saturday morning. Both of these Saturdays are spent travelling to and from our destination.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON PRICING:
The price shown is a per person price based on a minimum of 14 people and a maximum of 20. To claim the BUY NOW DEAL available to groups, you NEED TO BOOK ONLINE to reserve your spot, and pay for the full trip by no later than six (6) weeks before the departure date. Less than 14 people can travel, provided the daily rate of the vessel is paid based on 14 passengers.  To book one of these trips, the Group Organiser simply needs to click on the ‘Book Now’ button for a quantity of 1 group, fill out their details, and we will be in contact to confirm your booking and to organise deposits.

If you are not able to charter the Eastern Voyager for your own group alone, please see our Join a Group Charter page for options where you can join another trip, or contact us about the dates you are interested in.

Overview

GROUP BOOKING ONLY: This Group Charter is only available to those wanting to book the vessel for their own group with a minimum payment of 14 people per day for 7 days. Charters are based on groups of 14-20 guests, with a minimum group booking of 14 people.   Groups of less than 14 are able to book based on a minimum payment that is equal to 14 passengers per day that you charter. If you are an individual or small group, please refer to the organised trips to join an existing trip.

Once you have made the ONLINE BOOKING, we will be in touch to confirm your non-refundable deposits of $750 per person to secure the dates. Once that has been confirmed, we could look at setting up payment plans to pay the balance of the trip off by six (6) weeks before the expected departure date.

ONE OF THE BEST TRIPS WE'VE BEEN ON

Some of our people have been going on these trips around Australia continually for 40 years. We had a couple of guys with us that are heavily involved with the food and wine scene in Sydney and the said that some of the meals were as good as you would get in any restaurant in Sydney. Regards - Les.

Great trip and food

Hi guys. I was out at Swain Reefs in October 2019. Great meals all round, with a great recipe the chef did for the sweet lip. Great trip, crew and skipper. Thanks. Chris W (NSW)
