Vad du kommer att göra

Step aboard 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.

Either sit back and relax on our comfortable seating or have a turn at the wheel. Refreshments like tea coffee or milo ( a kiwi favourite) are available on the trip. Grab a drink and get to know the people around you.

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 summer we stop for swimming.

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

We are a family business with Peter sailing the yacht and Tiffany in the office taking bookings and organising anything else to do with Barbary.
Peter is very passionate about sailing and passing on information about our eco friendly yachts, Lake Taupo and our local cultural heritage. Peter is a fully qualified skipper. Skipper Restricted Limits (with passenger endorsement) licence and a Level 2 First Aid Qualification.

We also have 2 very qualified skippers.

Chris is a humorous character with the same qualifications as Peter. He has extensive offshore racing experience. Which means when he isnt working he is sailing for fun.

Kerry has been sailing all his adult life. He has sailed all around the world. He is very experienced in open ocean and competition sailing. He has some fabulous stories to tell.

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.

The captain was very kind and thoughtful and experienced. I felt very safe with him. I wish the weather was better but overall experience was good.

My first time in a yacht couldn’t have been better. Amazing story telling and great insights about Lake Taupo made it a very informative as well as a fun session.

The property had a fantastic view of the lake that we all loved! Everything that we needed was available. There was plenty of space in the house for 5 adults to move around and relax. The location was super!

What a unique way to experience Lake Taupo! Couldn’t have picked a better adventure... my mother was a little hesitant at first, but once she experienced it, she can’t stop taking about how much she enjoyed it. Great views & pictures (my friends are jealous!), people and vessel. A must-do!!!

Chris, the captain was great. He kept everyone on the boat laughing as he shared stories of the area. Mike, his assistant was friendly and eager to answer any questions we had. We would highly recommend this experience. You definitely get your money’s worth. (Just Chris’ sense of humor alone, makes it worth it)
