Willie Cruises and its experienced crew offers people the opportunity to experience the blue waters of Geographe Bay, Dunsborough aboard ‘Willie’, 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, the shell which put Broome on the map and shaped the history of the region as it is today.
Sailing from Quindalup down to Eagle Bay and back ‘Willie’ allows you to see how a traditional gaff rigged sailing vessel operates with all sails heaved up manually just as our forefathers did, whilst taking in the beautiful coast. With plenty of comfortable seating options aboard, anyone can enjoy the calm waters and natural beauty of the coastline surrounding Bunker Bay and Eagle bay.
To make your cruise with us completely stress free boarding will take place at Quindalup with a courtesy bus collecting guests along the main coastal road from most accommodations and will then be returned via coach at the end of the cruise.
You can completely relax hearing stories of the rich history and culture of the area, and enjoy the delightful complimentary canapes served by our crew and chilled beverages of your choice from our well stocked open deck bar. We accept Cash and eftpos.
Return transfer via coach to one of the designated locations along the main coast road between Busselton and Dunsborough
