A vessel of great character, charm, strength and comfort, Windborne has been sailing the world since 1928. Whether you are looking for a day sail, sunset cruise or a private charter, sailing upon Windborne is an experience like no other. Departing from Whitianga Wharf, we'll raise the sails and head off to some breath-taking places. You are welcome to help sail the old schooner, or sit back and relax - keeping a lookout for dolphins, whales and a huge variety of other sea & bird life. Swimming, snorkelling, waterfalls, and picnic lunches are all part of a day spent on Windborne. An unbeatable experience and a day enjoyed by all.
Your Captain & Skipper Avon has over 35 years sailing experience & gained a unique repertoire of sea stories.
