Sea Lord Howe – Lulawai


About us

Sea Lord Howe is a locally owned business run by the young couple Brad and Ida. Brad Wilson is a direct descendent of one of the first settlers on the island and has spent his childhood learning and experiencing everything that is Lord Howe Island. If you join us for any of our tours you will not only get to share his knowledge about the island but also the knowledge of two generations before him. Often on our tours you will find either Craig (Macca) or Clive on the tours with us. The former being Brads father and the latter being his grandfather. Sea Lord Howe is manly focused around the vessel Lulawai.


Lulawai is a vessel that was specifically designed for the island. It was custom made in 1968 and launched in 1969 on the island for the late Roy Wilson. Lulawai is a 37ft luxury cruiser fitted with a full bathroom, the vessel was completely refitted in 2010 to accommodate modern tours. We offer spacious seating inside and outside on comfortable cushioned seats and an easy set of stairs to enter and exit the vessel.

Our tours

Our most famous tour is our “Around the Island cruise”, we completely circumnavigate the island as well as offer commentary. We point out landmarks and share stories related to the island and its rich history. Running at just over two hours this trip will let you see the island from a completely new perspective and get a closer look at some of our native wildlife. Lulawai is always run by 2 crew members and therefore you have the choice of both inside and outside seating and commentary.

Sea Lord Howe also offer fishing trips, the most popular of these being our evening trip. On which we head out into the lagoon to enjoy the sunset before chasing various species suited to all anglers. This is an excellent opportunity to enjoy the island during sunset from its best angle. This trip especially suits families or couples/friends who would enjoy a relaxed environment but still wish to leave Lord Howe Island with a fishing experience.

Full and half day outer reef fishing charters are also available.
