Riviera Nautic yacht and motor cruiser charter

School Camps

We have been hosting school groups for many years. Some schools have returned annually for more than fifteen years. The reasons for this? Based on feedback from the schools, it is the service and support provided by Riviera Nautic, the quality and choice of boats in our fleet, the environment of the Gippsland Lakes and its diversity, and the unforgettable and unique experience this combination of factors facilitate.

"Thanks for providing great boats and even better weather last week for the school camp. The kind of learning that can happen on a boat in 20 knots is very hard to replicate in any other way and I saw kids grow by inches."
Ian, Woodleigh School, August 2011

The Lakes for learning

The Gippsland Lakes is an ideal environment in which to learn to sail - wide expanses of waterway, sheltered from the ocean, with plenty of secure moorings. The surrounding national parks and geomorphological features of the Lakes add depth to the learning experience..

Safe sailing

The Gippsland Lakes are completely safe for sailing:
sand/mud lake floor - no rocks or reefs
no tides
many secure moorings for safe overnight stays
public jetties, and mooring right onto the beach
always in sight of land
sheltered inland waterways with ocean beach just beyond the sand dunes


aboriginal, early white settlement
the construction of an artificial entrance
farming and much more.

Environmental studies

The Lakes' ecology, the national parks and geomorphological features of the Lakes combined with impacts and issues about land management activities

A natural environment

vast waterway
400 square kilometres of lakes and rivers
two national parks border the Lakes - mostly only accessible by boat
three navigable rivers
over 140 species of birds and Ramsar-protected wetland habitats
lots of kangaroos, koalas and other native animals
