Weipa commercial and research charters can be booked with Frontier Fishing Charters. Our mothership, the 65 foot Kerra Lyn, started her life as a marine parks patrol boat. Owned and operated by the Queensland government, she spent 15 years patrolling the waters between Cairns and the Torres Strait Islands. She has been immaculately maintained and offers many safety features that exceed industry requirements. With enough water, fridge and freezer space to be self-sufficient at sea for more than a month, the Kerra Lyn can accommodate up to nine (9) passengers in air-conditioned comfort. The vessel has a 1,200kg hydraulic davit and large stowage compartments to stow equipment. Some of the chartering options the Kerra Lyn can perform include: environmental, scientific, hydrographical, training, transfers, filming, diving and exploratory.
