Cruise Lake Taupo
Lake Taupo is quite literally the heart of the North Island. It’s the biggest lake in New Zealand and its water is incredibly clear. On a sunny day, the white sand at the bottom of the lake (which is really the caldera of a massive volcano) reflects the light and appears to be almost tropically blue, the mountains of the Central Plateau towering in the distance. It’s the perfect lake for a cruise.
See the Maori Carvings in an eco-friendly way with Sail Barbary
Sail Barbary is a stunning yacht with an impressive history. Built in the roaring 20s in California, Barbary has had her fair share of adventures sailing around the world before settling down in Taupo. She’s a stunning yacht with a Kauri heart and her and the skipper will take you out on an eco-friendly cruise to the famous 14-meter tall Maori Carvings.
Sailing either with the wind in the sails or with the power of an electric engine (the only commercial yacht in NZ with such an engine), your cruise is not only eco-friendly but also super quiet. No noisy engine tuckering away, no smelly fumes in your face. Just pure bliss.
Get 10% off daily scheduled cruises!
The Lake Taupo cruises with Sail Barbary take about 2.5 hours and depart several times per day. You’re welcome to bring your own drinks and snacks or you can purchase a selection of drinks on board.
