Ever wanted to sail onboard a tall ship? Become part of the crew for a day and help set sails, climb the rigging, ride the bowsprit or simply relax and let our friendly crew look after you! Enjoy the stunning scenery around the beautiful Bay of Islands on board a tall ship.
Operated by a Charitable Trust with profits going towards youth sailing programmes. This tall ship has a unique history and our aim is to ensure that those who come sailing with us, whether on a day sail or across an ocean, become friends for life. There are plenty of opportunities to climb the rigging, head out on the bowsprit and ride the waves or take the helm and steer the ship. Our friendly crew have harnesses and will show you the ropes – literally!
Once this experience has been confirmed, changes are at the discretion of the experience provider and arranged directly with them according to their policy.
The ship can take a maximum of 47 people but usually sails with an average of 25 to 35 people.
This experience is occasionally affected by the weather. Should your experience be cancelled you will be rescheduled by the provider.
Casual and comfortable clothing is recommended. Passengers are encouraged to bring their own water bottles they can refill aboard.
