A requiem mass will be held at St Mary’s Catholic Church, North Sydney, on June 16 for Geraldine Haworth who co-founded Australia’s small ship company, Captain Cook Cruises, with her husband in 1970.
Capt. Trevor Haworth, who died last year, and Geraldine operated $5 a head coffee cruises on Sydney Harbour in a chartered vessel before they launched a Great Barrier Reef programme in 1992 and Captain Cook Cruises Fiji in 1996.
They also operated Murray River cruises with the purpose-built paddlewheeler Murray Princess and two-night weekend cruises around Sydney Harbour and along the Parramatta and Lane Cove Rivers with the 120-passenger Captain Cook’s Explorer.
In 2011 Captain Cook Cruises was sold to the Adelaide-based SeaLink Travel Group, with the exception of the Fiji operation which is run by their daughter, Jackie Haworth-Charlton.
