Hankering to re-live your spirit voyage or always wanted to sail with us? This one is for you! We’re going on a sailing mission from Tauranga for an epic 3-night adventure. This is open to anyone 18 years and over.

COVID has thrown us a few curve balls and so we’re turning a cancelled voyage into an opportunity for participants over 18 years to experience a taste of our voyages. If you've been a trainee before, maybe think about gathering some trainees from your original voyage and re-live the adventure!

The Spirit of New Zealand is designed for Youth Development Voyages – we are not a cruise ship. If you haven't sailed before, you're in for a treat. You essentially become part of the crew, this ship does not sail itself! But don't worry, our crew are there to help guide you and get the most from this unique experience. You do not need any prior experience – just enthusiasm.


Participants must:

  • be 18 years and over
  • meet the medical criteria of the voyage
  • agree to the code of conduct /terms and conditions of the voyage

  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.
