Terms and conditions angle-down

Sailing trips are subject to minimum numbers, lake and weather conditions. Please let us know in advance if you have medical issues. The skipper has the last call on check in to decide if the trip is suitable regarding medical issues due to health and safety. Enjoy free pizza and beverages on some departures - or purchase light refreshments on-board.

Cancellation Policy angle-down

Cancellations made 24 hours in advance will incur no fee. If your experience is cancelled by the operator (because of the weather or anything else out of your control) you will be entitled to a full refund. People failing to show up for check in will not be refunded. In some situations, with advance notice and with payment of a transfer fee and potential extra costs (food, price difference, depending on the trip), the operator might be able to transfer you to another trip.

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-metres above Lake Taupō. 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. 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).
