Our People

He aha te mea nui o te ao
What is the most important thing in the world?

He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata
It is the people, it is the people, it is the people

Māori whakatauki (Māori proverb)

It is our people which makes the Trust so special. Our crew not only look after the young people on their voyages, giving them an experience of a lifetime, but also during summer, they share their enthusiasm and passion for the work we do with our tourism guests. Behind the scenes there are our Trustees and a small group of people (who are mostly part time) that keep the organisation ticking over. Most of them are multi-skilled, picking up what needs to be done as and when required. All of us are united in our respect for the ship and how she has the ability to change lives.
