Great Sailing and Entertainment Experience

Took one of the sailboats out for an hour and had a great time. The staff were super friendly and helpful. We went on a Sunday and at 4pm there was a live band / jam till the bar closed at 10pm! I even got to get up and play a few songs with the band! Will be back again for sure!

나의 첫 솔로 세일링 경험

세계 여러 곳을 여행했지만 요트를 임대해 주는곳은 Taupo가 처음임. 예약을 해두고 이틀 동안 유튜브를 뒤져 혼자 세일링 하는 절차를 습득하였다. 다행히 바람이 약하게 불어 나의 첫 솔로 세일링 2번(오전, 오후)을 무사히 마쳤다. 생각보다 안전하고 조종하기가 쉬웠다. 윈드서핑 경험이 조금은 도움이 되었음. Lake Taupo에서 세일링은 환상적임.

First time sailing on Lake Taupo

Awesome! Jan was great. The $20 for tuition would be better included in the price or made explicit as an extra cost.

Yachting at 2 mile bay

There was confusion about where to go and wasn’t happy after being told there would b an additional $20 for a tutorial. There was warning or fine print advising that.when in the yacht they had great fun

We Have To Do This Again

My husband thoroughly enjoyed this; so much so, that we have to do it again. It was easier to operate than we thought it would be and the 1 hour quickly passed. We sat in the yacht (across and opposite each other which is not usual) but it enabled us to look at each other as we spoke, we felt we balanced the yacht more (even though it is weighted and will not tip over), and he handled the sails whilst I steered the yacht, so it was a great partnership. Next time we intend to sit on the back of the yacht rather than in it.
