Spend a day on a dedicated tour visiting Friday Island "Kazu Pearls" pearl farm, multicultural, historic Thursday Island & Horn Island Heritage Museum with Cape York Adventures.
Start your day at Seisia joining Cape York Adventures on board the Strait Runner. You are in a small group enjoying a personal cruise through Torres Strait on a dedicated tour vessel.
Friday Island 'Kazu Pearls' welcome you ashore to enjoy the tranquil ambience of the island. Friday Is is very different to the other islands you will visit with only one family living on the island. It has a special remoteness and feels a world away from Thursday Is next door. During your stop you can visit the shop with island grown cultured pearl and pearl shell jewellery and mementos of the very special visit available for purchase or just to admire.
Cruising on to Thursday Island, TI to the locals, some of the locals meet our guests to take you on a personal taxi tour of the island. You will visit the highest point at Green Hill for a spectacular 360 degree view of the surrounding waterways, islands & TI, the historic cemetery and drive around the island hearing history and culture stories from a TI local.
With your free time on TI you can wander and explore the island yourself: sit back and enjoy a coffee, check out the rather unique TI shops, visit the Gab Titui Cultural Centre, enjoy a drink overlooking the harbour or just walk along the foreshore.
Enjoy lunch together at 'Australia's Top Pub': the Torres Hotel on TI, claimed to be the most northerly pub in Australia. A complimentary drink (beer, wine or soft drink) will welcome you to the cool, relaxed verandah of the Torres before lunch is served, freshly prepared.
Saying goodbye to TI its time to cruise across the harbour to laid back Horn Island, for a wander through the village to visit the Heritage Museum. The Museum is privately run and contains WWII history, artwork and Torres Strait artefacts. Horn Island is different again with a much more laid back and relaxed atmosphere. Cruising home, keep an eye out for crocodiles, turtles, fish life and the many sea birds that frequent the islands. You arrive back at Seisia at 4pm.
The Thursday Island tour is fully guided and everything is included in the price: taxi tour, lunch, Museum entry.
