One of Devonport's unique attractions, the Julie Burgess, a fully restored historic ketch offers two-hour sailings, taking up to 20 passengers out of the mouth of the Mersey River and into Bass Strait. The aim is to 'catch the wind', hoist the sails and experience the workings of this historic vessel. With a 'fair breeze', the vessel heads west toward Mersey Bluff, further west to Don Heads, before turning round in the Strait and heading back to port. Passengers get a different view of Devonport, the dolerite cliffs of Mersey Bluff and the North West coastline. While on board, you'll hear more about the ketch, now the last of the Burgess Family fishing vessels that plied the seas of Bass Strait and its islands.
