Set sail on a catamaran as you leave the wharf for the rolling waves of the deep blue sea. Surround yourself with the abundant wildlife as the cheeky wild dolphins come say hello. Indulge in a delicious lunch, stop over at beautiful remote islands, and sink your toes into white sand beaches.

After you board the 49-foot (14-meter) catamaran, help the crew set sail or to take a turn at the helm while the yacht gets ready to leave the wharf. Catch a glimpse of local birds and sea life, such as penguins, gannets, petrels, kingfish—and, of course, wild dolphins. If conditions permit, you may even have the chance to swim instead of watching these graceful creatures from afar.

At the island stopover, snorkel, take nature walks, play beach games, or just relax in the sun on the sandy beaches. Once you refuel with a yummy Kiwi-style barbecue lunch at a full cash bar, resume sailing and discover more of the picturesque Bay of Islands' historical and geographical points of interest.
