Wheelchair Access

Unfortunately for health and safety reasons we are generally unable to accommodate wheelchairs on board the Waimarie. It is a very old vessel and facilities on board are not easily accessible, with several steps, narrow passages and standard toilets.

Wheelchairs with less than 70cms between the outside tires may be acceptable, especially if the user has some form of mobility.
Walking frames are acceptable especially if the user has some form of mobility.

To avoid disappointment please check with our office if you need assistance in any way and our Manager will be able to provide you with more information.
