The Enterprize tall ship is an all-timber, carvel planked, two masted, topsail schooner. She is single decked, and made as close in replica to the original ship operating as a coastal trading vessel in the 1800's. She has been traditionally constructed using Australian and New Zealand grown timbers. This experience aims to provide you with the opportunity to experience life on board a nineteenth century sailing ship.
There may be times when the provider has to cancel a sail. This is most likely due to dangerous weather conditions - either high seas or high winds. In these events, the cancellation is for the safety of the ship, the crew, and the passengers. If you have booked, you will be given the opportunity to reschedule.
You will share this experience with other participants on board.
If the wind and/or rain is light to moderate, Enterprize will still sail. If it is heavy rain, the Master may cancel the sail and you will be notified by email and SMS.
Please bring a hat, sunscreen, flat shoes and a warm, windproof layer.
You are welcome to bring a picnic lunch or dinner, including a bottle of wine, but please be aware that the ship will move, so containers need to be sealable, and glassware should be plastic.
