Janine is a fifth generation Islander - her Great Grandfather was an American whaler, Nathan Chase Thompson who settled on the island in the 1850’s. Peter is the Island’s post master and he has had a number of his photos and stories published as well as writing a book on the Island’s history. You will learn more on a three hour tour than if you spent a week searching things out by yourself.

Lunch today is own arrangements.

This afternoon board the ''MV Lulawai” built on the island for the late Roy Wilson in 1969.

This beautiful vessel was purposely designed for the Island's waters and with a complete rebuild in 2010 she is the perfect vessel to showcase this beautiful island. Relax and enjoy the breath-taking views all around Lord Howe Island including the spectacular image of Balls Pyramid creeping up in the distance and sheer mountain cliffs. During part of the 2 hour cruise you will approach the 'Admiralty Islands' which are home to a large percentage of the Island's bird population. View the Island the way it was discovered, from the sea.
