As a Voyaging Partner of Tuia 250 – there is the opportunity for young people to apply to, free of charge, sail aboard Spirit of New Zealand between ports. There are seven voyages in total.

There are two ways to register your interest.

The first is as an individual. You must be 16-18 years old at time of sailing. Your voyage will be funded by the Ministry for Culture & Heritage but costs to and from departure/arrival ports are at your own expense.

Secondary schools throughout the country have an additional opportunity to nominate a group of ten Year 10 students and one teacher to join us.
