More Info


  1. Can I bring my own camera on a Voyage?

    We strongly suggest that if bringing a camera on board, you equip yourself with a dry bag for the safe keeping of your camera – please remember you are within a wet environment. Please bring your camera charger with batteries.

  2. Do I need to know how to sail to come on board?

    No sailing experience is required. Sailing is just one part of the voyage. Each sailing has a team of experianced sailors. Be prepared to help!
  3. I get sea sick. Can I bring medication with me?

    Please don't bring it with you. We have an ample supply of various sea sickness medication in the unlikely event that you need it. For safety reasons, we record and administer it, so we know who has taken it and can monitor you.

  4. Can I bring my fishing gear or dive equipment on board?

    Fishing gear and dive equipment is not permitted on board.

  5. Do I have to live in Auckland to get on an Auckland sailing?

    No we have people from all over New Zealand join the ship. You just have to get to where ever we are in port.
