Classical DAY TRIP

Each day we raise the sails and head out for adventure. There is no set route. If the dolphins and whales are about we play with them and if its really hot we find an isolated bay for a swim or walk ashore. We also tow a lure and often catch a tuna for lunch.

NZ$95 per person

Chances are you will see dolphins any time of the year as they do not migrate and absolutely love sailboats, generally making a bee-line straight for us to swim and frolic in the bow. Of course on all our cruises we are likely to encounter Blue Penguins, Gannets, Gulls, Terns and other ocean birds.
