Birthday Parties

Join us to hoist the sails, crack secret maritime codes and follow the clues to uncover the secrets of a 19th century tall ship to find the lost James Craig treasure!


Your 2 hour birthday party will be action packed for up to 25 party guests who will receive an exclusive tour of the James Craig followed by an exciting treasure hunt through the entire ship, where you must crack clues and complete sailing challenges.


Sea legs aren’t necessary as the ship will stay safely berthed at Wharf 7 for the duration of the party!


The birthday party includes:


– A personal James Craig party host

– A James Craig treasure hunt with a ‘treasure’ prize at the end

– Exclusive sailing games and activities

– James Craig captain’s hat for the birthday person to wear for the party’s duration

– Photo opportunities

– Party bags with small gift for each child

– Downloadable James Craig invitations.


Our Youth Program team are happy to accommodate any extra games or themes to meet the birthday child’s interests.


Our packages are all led by our Youth Program team assisted by James Craig volunteers, all of whom are familiar with the operation of the ship and have current and verified Working with Children Checks. Risk assessments have been undertaken and are available upon request.
