One Hour Sails

One Hour Sail is a wonderful chance to experience a taste of tall ship sailing aboard an authentic 1830s topsail schooner.

Whether you’re an adventurer looking for the next great journey, a sailor in search of a nautical challenge, a family after a fun day out or just looking for something different, a One Hour Sail on Enterprize has something for everybody! Assist the crew in setting the sails, relax and enjoy the rolling of the wind and waves, head aft and help steer the ship, or even go for a climb up the rigging!*

One Hour Sails usually depart the pier at 11am, 12:30pm and 2:30pm, and Enterprize operates these sails all around Port Phillip Bay, from her home berth of Docklands in the heart of Melbourne to coastal holiday spots such as Rye and Portarlington.

Afternoon / Evening Sails

For the more intrepid sailor, why not try an Afternoon / Evening Sail aboard Enterprize?

Whether it’s a romantic evening out, a unique location for a picnic dinner or a chance to catch up with family and friends, a full hour and a half on board ship gives you plenty of time to experience everything Enterprize has to offer! Relax and enjoy the rolling of the wind and waves, assist the crew in setting the sails, join the foredeck crew on bow watch and keep an eye out for dolphins, or head aft and help steer the ship!

You can even bring along a picnic hamper and a bottle of your favourite beverage and enjoy dinner on the ocean as you watch the sun set on the horizon, or, for the more adventurous, go for a climb up the rigging and watch the sunset from aloft!*

Evening Sails usually depart the pier at 6pm and 8pm, and Enterprize operates these sails all around Port Phillip Bay, from her home berth of Docklands in the heart of Melbourne to coastal holiday spots such as Rye and Portarlington.
