Private Charters & Staff Parties

Windborne is available for private functions such as hen or stag parties, weddings, birthday celebrations, staff do’s, reunions, sunset cruises, and the like.  Theme parties are also quite popular so let us know if you’d like to throw a pirate or south sea spirit celebration.

We can take a maximum of 24 guests for these one-day events. These private day charters can be self-catered picnic style or can be organised by us, depending on your budget and on the cuisine desired. Please feel free to discuss your ideas with us.

For all private charters, a 50% deposit is required to secure your booking.

The private charter includes the whole boat with a qualified skipper and crew:

  • Use of safety equipment.
  • Snorkeling and SUP gear.
  • Freshly brewed coffee or tea and cookies for morning tea.
3 hours sunset cruise
$1000 5pm to 8pm
Spend the last hours of daylight soaking in the sunset, sailing and enjoying the scenery on the calm waters of Mercury Bay. Nothing beats an evening sail around Mercury bay; perfect end to a summer’s day.
6 hours Sailing in the bay
$1600 10am to 4pm
Enjoy the day sailing and playing on the blue water of Mercury Bay with friends and family. Our playground is immense and has so much to offer and the backyard is full of treasures. Set and trim sails and feel the old girl healing with the wind. Or just lay back, relax and allow the fresh sea breeze to immerse you in the beauty of the nature. Or simply snack on your lunch and sip on on your drink. And be delighted by dolphins, whales, orcas or albatros when they choose to come and visit us.
10 hours Mercury Island Adventures
$2250 8am to 6pm
An awesome all day adventure to the iconic Mercury islands. Help your skipper set and trim the sails and take the helm as your schooner heels to the wind for the 15 nautical mile journey. It is way off other tourist routes and a real treat to experience. Explore our mind-blowing coastline. Jump off the boat into crystal clear water. Snorkel, paddle, walk the golden beach or marvel at the native birds flying amongst the pohutukawa trees. If you are lucky, dolphins, stingrays, and other underwater locals may pay you a visit.
