It truly was a great adventure. A few of the many highlights were camping near the turtle project... More

What a trip!!!! ( 10th July to 5th August 2014) Up to the tip (Cape YOrk) via the Old Telegraph road and back down by the conventional dirt road highways. DO IT.....put it on your bucket lists as this is one of Australia's last frontiers. Was able to take a helicopter over the tip which was the final (for me... More

We were escorted with safety as a priority, and to the credit of Paul got a group of complete strangers at the... More

Absolutely Fantastic. From the first point of contact Paul was informative & very helpful, his pre -trip information booklet is very handy in helping you prepare your vehicle & giving you details of the supplies you will require. Our trip to the Cape in May-June 2014 was very much out of the ordinary. IT Rained!!!!!!!. Don't let Paul tell you... More

My wife and I traveled with Paul Stafford to Cape York with eight other vehicles. It was a wonderful way to see the area with new friends and a very competent guide. The camp sites were the best in the area and ranged from bush camping at Vrilya Point to camping luxury at Cooktown. After a full day of driving... More

The cruise was very good, although not for the pompous, the cabins are large enough, very clean, the food was great and plentiful. Bar prices were VERY reasonable. The only downside was the engine noise, you need to be able to live with that. Ear plugs are provided, and are effective. Not much room to move around, you are restricted... More

It was very special to cruise around Cape York, and whilst we did not go on land, it was a feeling of achieving going around the Cape. Sailed close enough to see the land at a distance......our experience was the feeling. Recommend to all.
