Our authentic small group sailing tour takes you to the very heart of Akaroa's natural beauty - getting you up close and personal to one of New Zealand's most treasured locations.

Throughout the cruise we'll make our way around the many beautiful bays situated in the crater of an extinct volcano.

This pristine ecosystem is home to much wildlife; Hectors Dolphins, Little Blue Penguins and many seabirds are frequently sighted on this tour.

Our 33-ft MRX yacht is fast and responsive, which lets us sail primarily with wind power, making this tour a sustainable and environmentally friendly way to enjoy Akaroa Harbour!

If you're keen for more of a hands-on experience - you'll have the opportunity to take the helm and trim the sails along the way! (No previous sailing experience necessary)

A simply stunning way to see Akaroa and experience New Zealand's natural beauty at it's finest!

Fantastic Sailing Experience

We met up with 'ollie' for our sail around 'Akaroa Bay'. He let me take the helm from the outset and talked us through all the moves we were taking. It was a great way to spend 3 hours and totally worth it. We sailed at various speeds and various angles. Great fun. Totally safe, and he prides himself on all safety issues. Apart from the memorable experience we also saw Hector Dolphins and Penguins who followed the boat on numerous occasions. The boat can take up to 10 people but he usually only takes up to 5 people so there is a ton of room. Luckily it was just the two of us. Which was even more special. We would highly recommend this activity.
