Cruise ship Encore for Batemans Bay Monday 9th March


Now almost a regular, the cruise ship Seabourn Encore will again visit Batemans Bay, this time as its first port of call in a 14-day round trip Australian cruise.

Departing from Sydney, the Encore’s passengers will disembark at the Batemans Bay town jetty on Monday 9 March. The 504 passengers have the opportunity to participate in several tours, including an oyster tasting kayak excursion, Clyde River cruise, electric bike ride with Aboriginal story-telling, or a trip to Canberra.

Council’s manager of tourism Tim Booth said the visitors were a mix of international – mainly from the USA and UK – and Australian passengers, with an average age of 74.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming the Encore passengers, and the more than 400 crew, when they land at the Bay around 8am on Monday,” he said.

“We’ll be visiting shops and facilities at Batemans Bay prior, with information about the cruise ship and a handy guide for shop-owners to assist them with passenger needs.”
