Escape the hectic of life and experience the beauty of the lake and the Māori Rock Carvings on Lake Taupō's largest charter yacht Kindred Spirit with superior comfort
Come on board and experience the beauty of a scenic sailing tour to the Māori Rock Carvings, one of the most extraordinary contemporary carvings in the world. Only view-able from the water, the likeness of Ngātoroirangi towers 14-meters above Lake Taupō, surrounded by over 40 smaller carvings.
Escape from hectic life for a while and enjoy the breathtaking views around. Listen to our experienced skippers and learn about the history of the lake. Give the crew a hand hoisting the sails and take a turn on the wheel or just snuggle under some blankets and enjoy the wide selection of drinks.
Kindred Spirit sails under full sails as much as possible or gently meanders, when it is truly calm, by a quite inboard diesel engine.
Take a dip and swim in the crystal-clear waters of the largest freshwater lake in Australasia. We offer the longest swim stop out of any company on the lake (weather dependent)!
There is a bathroom and changing room facilities on board.
Kia ora Helen, thank you for this awesome review. It means the world to us to get a feedback like that. It was great to see how enthusiastic Alisa talked about sharks and marine life. Tell her, to follow her passion and one day, she can be a marine biologist. All the best for you Dave and Jess
Hi Kerryn, it was great to have you on board and lovely talk to you. It's amazing to hear that you consider us to be the best experience of your time in New Zealand. Although you got a bit mixed up with the boat name as you were on Kindred Spirit ;) We are happy that we could show you that sailing isn't scary, even if the boat leans over a bit. I love the photos you put up. Thank you for sharing with us. Enjoy your holiday Dave and Jess
Hi Flora, so happy to hear that you enjoyed your trip that much and that you liked our new boat. It was a pleasure to have you on board. Save travels Dave and Jess
