Overview

Join us for a Sailing Adventure in the beautiful Bay of Islands, with a small personalised group. Our main goal is for everyone to experience a day they'll never forget. You don't have to be a sailor to join us but you're more than welcome to take the wheel and help out. We can instruct and show you the ropes or you can just sit back, relax and let us do the work. The trip includes an island stop, a healthy fresh lunch and activities.

This trip was well worth the money. Dave has definitely lots to tell, not only about the area, but also about his life on his family's boat sailing around the world. His sandwiches were really yummy and the optional kayaks on board were another plus...More

The day on the Dave-cruise was perfect. He planed the day in an immaculate condition. A bit too short on the island. Hope you'll give me the sandwich recipe
