Visit the Rainbow Warrior in Bowen
Sunday, 14 April 2013 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM (EST)
The new Rainbow Warrior is the first high seas sailing vessel that we’ve built from scratch, funded entirely by donations from Greenpeace supporters. It features a purpose built crane, 50 metre high sails – even a helicopter landing pad. Equipped with the latest digital broadcast technologies, it can transmit live pictures directly from the high seas to media worldwide.
Come on board, meet the crew, and hear about these fascinating features and more.
In Bowen, the Rainbow Warrior will be anchored in the bay just south of town. You’ll be able to meet some of the crew and find out more about Greenpeace’s campaigns at our display in Santa Barbara foreshore park near the Bowen Jetty.
Free tours of the ship will be available for a limited number of lucky guests, and bookings are essential. The tours will start from the Bowen Jetty and each tour takes about 1 hour.
IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ: You’ll be ferried out to the ship in one of our inflatable boats, and you’ll need to be able to climb from the small boat in through a door in the side of the ship just above sea level. You’ll be wearing a life-jacket and our professional Greenpeace crew will look after you at all times.
Unfortunately, for safety reasons, we are not able to take children under five years old or people with a disability but we encourage everyone to visit our information tent in the foreshore park near the jetty.
Please understand that if the weather is not suitable, we may have to cancel the open boat tours at short notice. We will do our best to contact you by email or text message if the tours cannot go ahead.
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
For safety reasons, we cannot take children under 5 years old or people with a disability or injury which may make it difficult for them to climb in and out of the transfer boats onto the Rainbow Warrior. The final decision on which guests can be safely accommodated will be up to the Greenpeace crew at all times.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Please refer to your local public transport providers. Some parking will be available in public carparks near the event.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
You can bring a small bag or backpack with you, but no large luggage. You’ll be travelling in an open boat so please be aware that anything you bring may get a little wet.
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
If you can’t make it for some reason, you can send a friend or family member in your place. They will need to tell us the name of the person who made the booking when they arrive. Please come a little early to avoid delays.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Bring your printed ticket if you can, but providing the name of the person who made the booking should be sufficient.
