Balls Pyramid / Around Island Cruise
Come aboard the MV 'Carina'. This trip commences from the only jetty on Lord Howe. As the boat circumnavigates the island you will see some of the most spectacular scenery, seabird rookeries and rock formations, from Malabar hills and Admiralty Island group at the north end to the peaks of Mount Gower and Lidgebird at the south. Head 20 kilometres south-east to the awe inspiring peak of Balls Pyramid which juts out of the water some 570 metres - a must to see. As you transit across, watch sea birds abounding as well as the many friendly dolphins. The trip then returns to Lord Howe's Jetty where it commenced.
