Waar je naartoe gaat

We sail out to Whakamoenga Point to see the famous Mine Bay Maori Rock Carvings. They are only accessible by water. Sail Barbary takes you right up close to the face of Ngatoroirangi for the perfect photo of the 14-metre high rock art. The main carving is the face of an 800 year old ancestor. It is surrounded by smaller sculptures depicting ancestors and kaitiaki (guardians). While it was carved in 1981 the designs used are ancient.

The property had a fantastic view of the lake that we all loved! Everything that we needed was available. There was plenty of space in the house for 5 adults to move around and relax. The location was super!

What a unique way to experience Lake Taupo! Couldn’t have picked a better adventure... my mother was a little hesitant at first, but once she experienced it, she can’t stop taking about how much she enjoyed it. Great views & pictures (my friends are jealous!), people and vessel. A must-do!!!

Chris, the captain was great. He kept everyone on the boat laughing as he shared stories of the area. Mike, his assistant was friendly and eager to answer any questions we had. We would highly recommend this experience. You definitely get your money’s worth. (Just Chris’ sense of humor alone, makes it worth it)

Nice excursions. Chris and Matt were great. Chris had very funny stories. It wasn't very windy so we didn't really sail but used the electric motor

Great morning out on the water. The ponchos were a great, much needed touch due to the unexpectedly cold wind. Very pleasant day and great sights to see on the lake!
