Pearl Lugger Cruises
Come sailing aboard Broome's oldest surviving Lugger.
Enjoy a wonderful cruise sailing around the Gippsland Lakes aboard the historic Pearl Lugger “PAM”, Gippsland's very own tall ship. Cruises depart from the Pier 70 Restaurant in Paynesville and the Nungurner Jetty, depending upon weather and demand.
This magnificent sailing vessel was originally built in 1902, over 110 years ago. The pearl lugger started her long working life in Broome WA, before being wrecked, rebuilt and moved to Darwin in 1928. Beached in 1960 and abandoned once again, Dan McLay discovered the wreckage in 1989. 25 years later the PAM Pearl Lugger has been fully restored to her former glory.
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 to 15 people.We run morning and afternoon cruises depending upon weather conditions and demand.
