Vad du kommer att göra

Join us on our classic white eco friendly sailing boat. No noise, no nasty diesel fumes. Our skipper will help make your trip memorable aboard the vessel that has proudly entertained visitors to the region since 1982.

After a safety briefing we leave the marina at the beginning of the mighty Waikato River and work our way along the bays of Lake Taupo with an informative and interesting short history of the area, it’s volcanic nature and cultural history.

The evening sunset trip comes with a free drink. Either a glass of wine, beer, cider or soda. Grab a drink and get to know the people around you. Sit back and relax on our comfortable seating. This is a fun trip.

As we sail you will enjoy the majestic view of our volcanic mountains, Ruapehu, Ngauruhoe and Tongariro. In the Winter they are snowcapped like ice cream cones.

Sail Barbary takes you right up close to the face of Ngatoroirangi, for the perfect photo of the 14-metre high rock art, only accessible by water. The skipper will tell you the story of its carving. In the evening the setting sun makes the face glow.

In the summer we stop for swimming.

We are a truly unique and authentic experience. the only sustainable sailing company on the lake.

Var ni kommer att vara

The Mine Bay Maori Rock Carvings are only accessible by water. Sail Barbary will take you up close to the face of Ngatoroirangi for the perfect photo of the 14-metre high rock art. The main carving is the face of an 800 year old ancestor. It is surrounded by smaller sculptures depicting ancestors and kaitiaki (guardians). It was carved in 1981 using traditional designs and techniques.

Sailing out to the carvings was lovely. We were entertained and informed on the way and there were even padded ponchos to keep us warm on the way home.

We felt like we were in pirates of the Caribbean.. magical and it was awesome listening to the history of the Maori rock carving. Wonderful hosts had warm jackets in time of need.

Highly recommend this trip for : Value for money - get free beer, wine, cider, coke or lemonade on board Excellent captain commentary with historic, cultural, environmental and boating information that was also entertaining Electric powered so no horrible diesel or petrol fumes and a much quieter engine noise Loved feeding the ducks on the wing Comfortable trip with an up close view of the rock carvings and a warm 22deg lake swim with sun lowering at about 6.30pm The perfect activity to be on the water with a soft cooling breeze to keep you cool and relaxed during one of the hottest parts of the day. Will recommend to friends and guests.
