New Zealand

To sail New Zealand is truly a unique charter. On this trip, you will find yourself surrounded by cobalt blue waters looking out silvery beaches against stunningly lush backdrops. Sailing the South Pacific seas, it a fantastic way to experience such a diverse and beautiful island.

There are a variety of trips that you can do in New Zealand. From the Bay of Islands Maritime Park in the north to the Hauraki Gulf, Auckland– this covers 150 miles of sailing. Roberton Island in the maritime park has two stunning lagoons where you can snorkel the underwater trails. Oke Bay is great for swimming as it is surrounded by tall cliffs and has pristine beaches. There is an abundance of sheltered and safe anchorages around New Zealand and most have water deep enough that you can anchor very close to shore.

Being south of Australia the season is a bit shorter with the best weather is from November to April when the winds are normally 5-15 knots.
