Explore Lord Howe Island with us from the water. We offer sightseeing, fishing and snorkelling tours. Sea Lord Howe is a locally owned business run by young couple Brad and Ida. Brad Wilson is a 6th generation islander and has spent his childhood learning and experiencing everything that is Lord Howe Island.
All of our tours are run on Lulawai, a 37ft custom built cabin cruiser specifically designed for the island. It was built on Lord Howe in 1968 and launched in 1969 for the late Roy Wilson. The vessel was completely refitted in 2010 to accommodate modern tours, Lulawai is equipped with a full bathroom, spacious seating inside and out on comfortable cushioned seats, an easy set of stairs to enter and exit the vessel, plenty of room to walk around and two knowledgeable crew members at all times.
We offer four main tours:
- Around the Island History Boat Cruise
Circumnavigate the island with Lulawai as she cruises along magnificent volcanic cliffs, gently floats beneath spectacular mountains, get up close to the Admiralty Isles and the thousands of seabirds nesting there. During the 2 hours you are joining us, two crew members with extensive knowledge about the island will point out landmarks, native wildlife as well as answer any questions you may have about our beautiful island.
- Sunset Fishing Trip
What better way to end the day than with a sunset fishing trip! Head out into the lagoon to calmly 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 who would enjoy a relaxed environment but still wish to leave Lord Howe Island with a fishing experience. Whether you wish to relax with a glass of wine on the front deck or exclusively fish from the back this an opportunity not to be missed.
