The crew of the Tall Ship Derwent Hunter are excited to have been invited as the guest Tall Ship for the Cooktown and Cape York Expo in 2021. As part of the Pearl Lugger Heritage Fleet, like many others COVID 19 had cancelled our 2020 plans for escorting the HMB Endeavour into Cooktown.
2021 saw the Derwent Hunter visiting Cooktown during the festival, establishing a long term commitment to the community that will see the establishment of our very own Pearler's Locker and Saltwater Club precinct and a permanent presence of an historic Torres Strait pearling lugger or missionary vessel later in the year.
Our tours were mostly booked out during the ten day festival for at least two tours per day including a morning and twilight sail.
