Overview

We have a position for skipper(s) based in Tauranga NZ. New applications are now open to take the helm on our vessels Bay Explorer 18m and Kewpie 14m. You must be a qualified Skipper to apply. Be a people person and enjoy working in Tourism and Hospitality. It’s a fun work environment but requires professional conduct at all times.

Day work comprises Bay Explorer Island and Wildlife Cruises ( full day) observing dolphins, whales, seals, sharks, birds and fish. Adventure Stand-up paddle boards (SUP) and kayaks are deployed during lunch BBQ at the island stopover. Daily trips run 8:00am (customer pick-ups) and often return between 3:00 and 4:00pm

Kewpie Cruises Scenic Harbour Cruises. Scheduled cruises with stopover at an island within the harbour. Daily trips run hourly from 11:00am to 4:00pm

As well as the day work we also run night work with hospitality cruises. Everything from DJ parties to hens nights.

Crew often work shifts on both day and night work options. Night cruises are typically 3hrs duration. Sometimes we do two charters  in an evening. Both require time before and after to do boat prep/ clean.

It’s hard to determine exactly the work load and we have about 8 staff committed to roster incl. crew

Main busy times are Dec. Jan. and we will be working from Sept/Oct through to April/May.

Hope this is of some interest. Let me know your thoughts. Happy you discuss details and Work options ( full, part-time, contract )
