Private Tours
From $3600* per day

Stay on board a few days, a week or longer if you wish! Your sailing catamaran is your activity, transport, meals and accommodation all in one. All multi-day sailing holidays are personalized, no two tours are the same.

There is plenty to experience in our region, including: walking the National Parks coastal tracks; beach strolls and swimming; snorkeling; fishing and of course sailing!

We have two Leopard 46 sailing catamarans available - Te Harinui is Māori, meaning Great Joy, and Joella, named with family in mind. They are of very high standards and easily competes on the international stage. All tours are skippered charter. During your stay your skipper is your personal host and guide, sharing local stories, interesting facts on the geology, flora and fauna, and customizing the time aboard to suit you.

Anchoring in secluded bays before sunset, the evening could be spent swimming in phosphorescence or exploring glow worm caves. You will awake to the sound of the morning birdsong while enjoying the stillness and beauty of the sunrise. Your days may be spent enjoying: one of NZ’s Great Walks in the lush native bush of the Abel Tasman Coastal Trail; Marveling at NZ fur seals, marine and bird life; Exploring the northern end of the National Park accessible by only a few; Paddle boarding along golden beaches; Collecting fresh mussels off the rocks; or BBQ your freshly caught fish.

Delight in your own private yacht waiting at the end of each day with a hot meal, delightful local wines and a comfy bed. With all these opportunities at your fingertips and an all-inclusive package, there’s no better way to experience a true local kiwi holiday than on board. 

For all self catered tours, plan to bring along your own food and beverages. You will have use of the well-equipped galley (kitchen), including basic pantry supplies, tea & coffee. Please note it is customary that you provide the skippers meals during your stay.
