Special Sailings and Events

We love special events, particularly for members of the community. These may be themed sailings such as our popular kids pirate sail, special day sailings where we have guests on board or sometimes it’s just about putting on a sailing for members of the community. Check out this page to see if we have any special sailings planned.

Community Sailings

As a charity, we are keen to support community groups by offering special sailings for those who volunteer or do good work for their community. Starting at just $69 for a 4.5 hour sailing, let us take you for a sail and provide a memorable occasion for your group. We can tailor a variety of options to suit your requirements, to provide an affordable tall ship experience in the Bay of Islands. Add on morning tea, lunch and an extra hour sailing and have a great day out. Minimum of 20 passengers and a maximum of 47, sailings will be subject to availability.

Bay of Islands Discovery Voyages

Sail and explore the world famous Bay of Islands for 3 days and 2 nights on board the iconic R. Tucker Thompson tall ship.

Now is your chance to stay overnight on this beautiful tall ship and experience the Bay of Islands through a different lens. You’ll get to explore the amazing history and stunning scenery of this beautiful part of Aotearoa, New Zealand.

What a brilliant day! The crew were so friendly and informative and happy to chat. The boat readily swallowed up a crowd of us with plenty places to sit, stand or climb the rigging or bow sprit!.

Lunch was delicious!
