This opportunity is best suited to those that wish to explore the Hauraki Gulf, either crew new to sailing or experienced sailors. I am always keen to teach new sailors or learn from other people's experience.
I mainly use the yacht to explore the islands within the gulf. Activities can include, sailing, hiking, explore beaches, stand up paddle boarding, fishing, snorkeling, eating in restaurants, visiting wineries to name a few.
The Hauraki Gulf, stretching between Auckland and the Coromandel Peninsula, is dotted with motu (islands) and gives the Bay of Islands stiff competition in the beauty stakes. Some islands are only minutes from the city and make excellent day trips. Wine-soaked Waiheke and volcanic Rangitoto really shouldn’t be missed. Great Barrier requires more effort to get to, but provides an idyllic escape from modern life.
