Enjoy a 3 hour pleasure cruise sailing around the beautiful Gippsland Lakes on the historic Pearl Lugger “PAM”, a 64 foot ketch rigged sailing ship originally built over 110 years ago.
Cruises operate 7 days a week and depart from Pier 70 Restaurant in Paynesville, Nungurer Jetty or the Myers Street Jetty in Lakes Entrance depending upon weather conditions and according to demand.
A day out sailing on the Pearl Lugger will be a unique experience that your entire family and friends can thoroughly enjoy together. Kids will have a great time. We are licensed for over 30 passengers, but prefer to limit our cruises to smaller groups of 10 or 15 people.
Passengers may indicate their preference, but we can set our course to sail around Paynesville and Raymond Island, Ocean Grange and Bunga Arm, Eagle Point and Lake King, or Metung through to Nungurner, Kalimna and Lakes Entrance. Occasionally we may spot dolphins or seals and will always see our wonderful East Gippsland flora and fauna.
