Our very own Captain Ross Miller was selected as one of three individuals out of the Far North Queensland area to help Tourism Tropical North Queensland promote their "this is my paradise" campaign.
The campaign has selected three special locals that have a specific interest/ hobby that they love to experience in the tropical north. Ross's passion (other than being out on Aroona of course) is hang gliding. He learnt from his father at a young age and has been a keen flyer ever since.
Aroona has a new addition to her fleet, a custom built, 5m, Inflatable aluminium hull Swift (RIB). The new tender has underfloor fuel storage, lockers that create space for storage and a brand-new 4 stroke, 60HP outboard motor.
The swift has been sea trialled and is a comfortable, fast, lightweight new addition.
Flyboard Cairns spent a day on Aroona with a bunch of extreme activity loving people. Crew ferried guests to and from the Palm cove jetty to come out and be a part of the action with Cairns' newest aqua experience.
Guests described the experience of flying through the sky like 'Astro boy' or 'Ironman'.
