Great Day

We had a lovely group of people onboard, and enjoyed a wonderful day, weather fresh so swimming and kayaking was limited to the tough!! But still plenty to enjoy, we stopped on an island and after a steep climb we were greeted with the most stunningly beautiful view! Lovely lunch with homemade slice, yum! Would do it again!

We had a great time

Our family, including two teen boys, really enjoyed sailing in the beautiful Bay of Islands, and it really was beautiful. We each got to steer the boat, and we had a nice time on the island we anchored at, including doing some kayaking there. The lunch was good too. This is a really nice relaxing way to see the Bay of Islands and was one of the highlights of our trip up north.

Sailing doesn't get better than this!

Beautiful day but a bit cool in the morning, lovely boat, stunning scenery, small group (4 couples), good wind conditions, experienced and friendly skipper, nice lunch; what more could anyone ask? 5 stars for sure.

Fantastic trip

This was a fantastic trip. We visited different area in the bay of islands and stopped over at an island. The water was not warm enough to swim except for some brave English, Canadians and Italians. We saw many blue penquins no dolphins. Dolphins were in the bay the next day. The seagulls were diving into the ocean in a few places as there was an abundance of fish. We had a great lunch, chicken salad, lovely taste. Every body had a chance to steer and help with the sails. Great experience to just sail the bay of islands with a lovely wind helping us back to Russel.
