Harbour Pilots, Large Ships & Storms

  • Duration: 1 Hours (approx.)

A special cruise for school holidays!

A former harbour pilot joins us onboard MV Sootychaser.

A pilots job is to climb onboard a large ship, before it enters the harbour. And to help the captain navigate it down the long, winding channel.

A dangerous place for a big ship! 

Does anything ever go wrong? How big is the steering wheel? (helm).

What happens when there is a storm? Ask these questions and learn about what really goes on, in the wheelhouse of a big ship!

And find out what happens in a storm....!

See the pilot boat that transports the pilots to the ships.

Or 10 minutes later from Portobello Wharf (837 Portobello Road).
