Experience the Bay of Islands the old-fashioned way with a cruise on the R. Tucker Thompson, a traditional gaff-rigged schooner with her own unique history.
On the Full Day Sail, be as active as you like – take the helm, help set the sails, ride the bowsprit and climb the rigging – or simply relax while the crew command this impressive ship as she sails across the Bay. During your sail, the crew will share some of the rich history of the area with you.
Step ashore and explore a secluded island or take a swim while a barbeque lunch is prepared for you.
During the Late Afternoon Sail, take in the views as the ship sails across the sheltered waters of the inner harbour and enjoy an antipasto platter and glass of wine as the sun starts to set.
Sailing aboard the R. Tucker Thompson is available from November 5th 2013 – April 21st 2014. Evening sails are available every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday during this period.
