NZ Sailing Adventure Around Auckland (3 Days)

Start your sailing adventure in the Viaduct by visiting the Peter Blake exhibition at Maritime Museum, followed by a seabins analysis and a mussel filtration exercise. Sail to Motuihe Island, learning the fundamentals of boats and safety. Once anchored, take part in a beach clean up and discover the island’s flora and fauna with an educational talk. Next morning, sail to Rotoroa Island and experience the Hauraki Gulf’s newest predator-free sanctuary. Enjoy a guided nature walk with an island ranger, learn about the island’s restoration and fascinating history, followed by a chance to explore the island’s walking trails and museum, and support a community volunteer project. In the morning, take part in a raft building activity before sailing to Auckland, having developed an understanding of how we are all connected to the sea and how our actions impact the health of our environment.
