Reef Sprinter shells out for moor­ing

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Gizelle Ghidella

IT’S full speed ahead for Port Dou­glas Reef Sprinter tour op­er­a­tors fol­low­ing their pur­chase of a rare moor­ing at Low Isles. Reef Sprinter is now one of four op­er­a­tors with moor­ings that give ex­clu­sive ac­cess to the is­land all year round.

Steve Sher­well, owner of Reef Sprinter, said a “reg­u­lar per­mit” had only al­lowed them 50 days a year “on the ac­tual is­land”.

With the pur­chase of the for­mer En­ter­prise moor­ing from Star­gate, Reef Sprinter can carry out big­ger plans. “We’re quite lucky to have it, there were a lot of peo­ple go­ing for it,” Mr Sher­well said.

“Th­ese per­mits don’t come up of­ten. It’s got a lot of po­ten­tial if done right. We’re look­ing for­ward to of­fer­ing a dif­fer­ent op­tion to peo­ple and a bumper sea­son”.

Reef Sprinter will kick into ac­tion with the in­au­gu­ra­tion of new half day tours to the Low Isles in a few weeks.
