That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Set sail on the stunning Lake Taupo aboard a classic sailing yacht as the sun lowers from the sky. You'll cruise to the famed Maori Rock Carvings at Mine Bay and learn about the local history, enjoy pizza and a wide selection of drinks, help the crew hoist the sails and go for a dip in the big blue.
Experience the magic of sailing on board a classic sailing yacht at sunset on the crystal-clear waters of Lake Taupo. As the sun begins to sink into the horizon, you'll gracefully glide along the waterways to the iconic Mine Bay Maori Rock Carvings, hailed as one of New Zealand's most extraordinary contemporary artworks. Only viewable from the water, the masterpiece towers 14 metres above the lake and is surrounded by over 40 smaller carvings. Over the cruise, you'll learn about the history of the lake and be given the opportunity to help the crew hoist the sails and turn the wheel. If this doesn't appeal, you're free to snuggle up under the blankets, lounge on the main deck and savour pizza and drinks. There will also be a swimming stop for those keen to take a dip at sundown.
