A tall ship sailing experience like no other

Did you miss out on taking part in a Spirit voyage in your younger days? Perhaps you’ve always wanted to sail on a tall ship or simply experience the many joys of sailing. This is the perfect opportunity for anyone age 18 years and over to experience sailing on board Spirit of New Zealand for a 3-5 day coastal voyage.

Join us on board for a thrilling adventure as we relocate the ship from port to port. The crew are there to guide you through the experience of sailing a tall ship and will endeavour to give you the same experience enjoyed by participants on 10 Day voyages. These short voyages provide a rare opportunity for keen adventurers to fulfill an ambition to sail on a tall ship, enjoying an authentic taste of life at sea. No previous sailing experience required.
