Maritime History:

A family background in commercial fishing in Queensland waters from Tweed Heads to the Gulf of Carpentaria with some 17 vessels within the family, there was always something to do on the family boats.  Neil has sailed on several vessels taking surfers for tours around Java and the Philippines.  Neil has been employed by Keith Hall of “Incredible Fishing Charters” based at Redcliffe for about 4 years working as a deckhand and  vessel skipper in waters offshore from Point Look-Out to the southern end of the Barwon Banks.  Neil is also a professional line fisherman and has held a master fishers licence for many years.

Neil’s passion for the sea has now lead him further towards a full time commitment in training community members on public courses about boating safety and assessing skills required for the issue of their boat and jetski licencses.  Neil has lived in Redcliffe most of his life attendig schools at Clontarf, Kippa-Ring and Scarborough believes everybody should be able to safely enjoy the pleasures of exploring Tangalooma wrecks,fishing or sailing around MoretonBay  as he and his family does.
