Mission Beach Charters is available for research charters/contracts with experienced research crew and our 2C surveyed vessel 'Brahminy'. Locally owned and operated, our company has GBRMPA permits for QLD's east coast, Marine Park permits for several local rivers and creeks, a Charter Fishing Permit, plus Commercial Activity Permits for the Barnard and Family Islands groups, Goold Island and several mainland National Parks.
Dr Adele Pile is a retired researcher with over 25 years of experience in the Australian Marine Science community and will coordinate your research cruise. Mission Beach Charters has aided scientists from AIMS, JCU, CSIRO, QLD DSITI , University of W.A, ANU & UQ with various programs including inshore reef monitoring, long term instrument monitoring, flood plume sampling, glider deployment and water quality monitoring to name a few. Stuart will tap into local knowledge, and our vessel "Brahminy" can be modified internally to cater for a variety of work to ensure that the reasearch gets done.
Mission Beach Charters also has a range of camping and snorkelling equipment for hire.
Catering is available within the local Mission Beach area upon advance request.
½ day or full day rates apply-long term packages available.
