we were a small group of three inexperienced landlubbers ... who had an awesome few hours onbord with the owner/operator ...ray. he made us feel at ease ... even to the point of taking the wheel. totally enjoyable and informative .. and a chance to 'feel' a 1940's ocean sailing yacht ... awesome.

Absolutely loved it!! So did the grandkids. learned a lot of the history, smooth sailing and great host. Would love to do it again later in the year when the dolphins are about.

We really enjoyed our eco-nature sail with Skipper Ray. Would have given 5 stars if we had seen more wildlife (not his fault!)

Weather has a lot to do with a sailing experience. We had a sunny day and we managed to see the wonderful views, some dolphins and penguins and the afternoon was a great experience in spite of the fact that we had to motor most of the time for lack of wind. The skipper was lots of fun and well travelled himself and we shared lots of stories. Good value.

Our morning sail was wonderful. We saw plenty of wildlife, seas were calm, and the boat was not crowded. I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Akaroa.
