Embark on a journey to Althorpe Island, located 4.5 nautical miles from the mainland. With a significant maritime history, the island is home to several state heritage-listed structures, multiple shipwrecks, and graves.

The tour showcases the stunning scenery and abundant wildlife, including the Australian Sea Lion, various sea birds, and marine life. We'll leisurely cruise around the island, taking in the impressive views before returning to the mainland. Along the way, we'll also pass the Eastern Osprey nest, where you might catch a glimpse of these magnificent birds of prey. Keep your eyes peeled for the White Bellied Sea Eagles that nest on nearby Middle Island, too!
