Get on Board

Sail training gives you the opportunity to step into a world of adventure. A world where you can challenge yourself, learn new skills and make new friends from around the world.

There’s no feeling like crashing through the waves, far out to sea, on a ship where you know you’re an essential part of the team. You can be at the helm steering or in the galley preparing dinner, scrubbing the decks or raising sails, but whatever you’re doing you’ll be part of a watch and you’ll have an experience you’ll never forget.

Simply choose a ship, book your berth or register interest, and you’ll soon be having the adventure of a lifetime.  Whether you choose the smallest or the biggest vessel, every trainee gives their all to put the skills they learn to the test and become an essential crew member.

Tall Ships in Australia and New Zealand offer voyages varying from three to fourteen days duration, for youth and for adults looking for a challenging adventure at sea. These traditionally rigged vessels sail along the coast, across the Tasman Sea and into the Pacific Ocean. Sometimes they even sail overseas.

Choosing the right vessel is essential to getting the most from your experience at sea. Every voyage presents different challenges and opportunities. A number of vessels offer regular day sails, particularly in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Hobart and Auckland. Several vessels are also available for private charter, for functions or corporate training programs.

Check out Tall Ships in your state or territory or visit the international Sail On Board website for opportunities to embark on your adventure under sail.
