Boat Crew

The Job:

Can you imagine working your days aboard a boat on Sydney Harbour, or cruising around the Whitsunday Islands?  Working as part of a Boat Crew might sound idyllic, but it is easier than think with several different jobs available that could suit your skills perfectly. Whether it is working as a Cruise Director, Steward/Stewardess, Tour Leader, a Deckhand, Cleaner or Maintenance you could spend your days hanging out with other travelers and holidaymakers.
The Perks:

  • Spend your days cruising on crystal clear Australian oceans, harbours and rivers while you get paid to work.
  • Work and socialise with other travelers as part of your work, what could be better?

Previous work experience required:

Previous experience may be necessary depending on the specific Boat Crew role. For all positions, a current First Aid Certificate will be beneficial plus a current RSA Certificate (Responsible Service of Alcohol) for Hostessing/Hosting, Tour Leader and Stewardess/Steward roles.
The $$$:

Wages will be based upon the specific role you will fill as part of the Boat Crew. As a general guide, a Stewardess/Steward position may pay between $15-$20 per hour, while a Maintenance position will pay between $20-$30 per hour.

The word on the street:

“My friend and I were in Sydney and applied for Tour Leader positions as part of a Boat Crew in the Whitsunday Islands. We worked there for two months and had the best time, cruising the islands for 2-5 days at a time and then partying hard in Airlie Beach when we hit shore.” Jenna, Canada.
