Description

The beautiful panoramic views of Great Lake Taupo… There’s no better way to experience this natural wonder than on the water itself. For a truly unique sailing experience – Sail Barbary to the Maori Rock Carvings.
We invite you to make yourself at home on our lovingly restored two classic white sailing yachts. Our skipper and crew will make your sailing trip aboard the vessels that have proudly entertained locals & visitors to the region for over 30 years one to remember. Soak up the sun or roll up your sleeves, you can take the wheel, help hoist the sails or just sit back and enjoy the view. You are even welcome to B.Y.O. (Bring Your Own) prepared food and beverages (R18 for alcohol).
We’re equipped for all conditions. If the wind dies down, Sail Barbary’s quiet, eco-friendly electric engine kicks in. Or, if you prefer a real sailing adventure, then come aboard when the wind is up and enjoy sailing without salty sea spray and noisy outboard motors.
It’s a great day out. A cruise with Sail Barbary is the perfect surprise for the sailor in your family, team building or a treat for yourself.
Sail Barbary sails every day (except Christmas day) at 10.30am, 2.00pm and 5.00pm (*5.00pm Summer only).
