What To Expect
Choose the sailing time
that’s most convenient for you, and then make your way to Taupo Marina where your ketch Fearless, a 48-ft (14.6-meter), two-mast sailing boat, is waiting for you.
On board, take a seat and soak up the views, or choose to join in with rigging and hoisting the mainsail. Note: in completely still waters, a motor is used to operate the boat.
Listen to commentary from the crew as you take the scenic route — past the bays of Te Kopua and Acacia — to the Māori Rock Carvings at Mine Bay (or Okuta Bay). The carvings are only accessible by water and, on this tour, you’ll get right up close to the rock face and have ample time to take in the intricacy of the large Māori figures.
In the warmer months, bring your 'togs' (swimwear) and towel for swimming, or perhaps choose a cruise with music, wine and pizza (if upgrade selected) for the perfect summer evening on the water. You are also able to bring your own food and drink with you, should you wish.
After about 2.5 hours, return to the marina where your tour concludes.
