BIG MAMA, is our beautiful 18 metre (60 foot) Ketch-rigged sailing yacht & we live on board( Big Mama is our Home).
Our names are Stu, Lisa, Fletcher and our small dog, Coco.
We invite you into our home and offer a unique and memorable sailing experience for up to 12 guests on our day sails and up to 4-5 guests on our overnight sails .
Please visit our Big Mama Sailing Facebook Page & our Trip Advisor Reviews for more guidance.
We are currently based in Mission Beach(but in 2017 we will be relocating to Townsville/ Magnetic Island area so we can enjoy the SUNNY weather), but we are also happy to reposition Big Mama along the North Queensland Coast(or anywhere that is in our capability) to suit your Private Sailing Adventure including Mission Beach(so we will not be totally disappearing from Mission Beach).
WHEREEVER WE ARE WE CAN OFFER A UNIQUE AND A MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE & KEEP AN EYE ON OUR WEBSITE FOR INFORMATION ON NEXT YEARS CRUISES).
We cease cruises around mid January, February, March(depending on the weather) as we prefer our guests to have a memorable,safe sailing experience & we enjoy our quality family time(camping and 4wd action)as well as maintenance & survey requirements on our beautiful Big Mama.
We recommence cruises once we are happy the weather has settled & enjoyable for everyone.
Our cruises are always weather dependant and we do not operate once the weather is unsafe( we use, winds over 20 knots as our cancellation wind level).
Please, feel free to contact us for more information on our cruises, availability, location and the weather.
Please review our entire site thoroughly we have been sailing these regions most of our lives and know we can show you much beauty above and below the ocean surface
But every charter group is different.
And not all yachts suit all guests.
Rather than ‘sell’ you a charter with us, only to learn too late that it is not a good fit, our objective in this site is to give you the information you require to make a good decision.
We do not wish to engage the ‘wrong charter’ any more than you do. Just about everything you need to know should be here. And of course we will be pleased to correspond.
Our objective is to ensure the vessel, crew and destination suits your interests and your capacities.
BIG MAMA is a Family Friendly vessel and we attract families, couples and solo travellers from all over the world and of all ages.
Whether novice or expert sailor, non swimmer or snorkeler, whether adult, teen or child, we cater to all interests and skill levels within the limitations of safety, your itinerary, weather and ‘ocean sense.’
Incidentally, you may find these details useful as points of importance when searching other sites for your ideal charter vessel. Websites designed more to ‘sell’ than ‘inform’ often leave out important details about which guests don’t know to enquire.
All The Best in your search for the ideal Sailing Adventure!
Cheers Lisa, Stu & Fletcher
