Barefoot Sailing Adventures


Hours: 8am - 9pm 7 days

Want to try something a little different? Try a Barefoot Sailing Adventure! Sailing is our passion, if we are not sailing we are sleeping! We have a real relaxed 'Kiwi' style - if you're not barefoot you're overdressed :)


If you’re looking for a unique, kiwi experience, you can’t go past a boat trip with Barefoot Sailing Adventures! Bay of Islands is a truly magical place to go for a sailing trip, with its calm, pristine waters, marine wildlife and of course, the stunning scenery. All of which makes our beautiful place a world-renowned sailing destination. Our boat, Kopiko, is a modern 33ft catamaran, which offers a comfortable sailing experience for everyone – you can bring the whole family! Let our experienced and qualified team take you on an adventure – with us you can explore hidden bays and beaches which are only accessible from the water. With photo-ready scenery everywhere you look, make sure you bring your camera to capture those once in a lifetime pictures. So, welcome aboard! Let the Barefoot crew share our love of sailing with you! The boat is a catamaran, so it sits flat on the water when sailing (doesnt lean over) - which is good news if you are a little nervous or unsure. If you are interested in learning about sailing let us know, you can join in on the fun setting sails, and if the conditions are right they can have a go on the helm. But the best part is the boat picks you up straight from the beach just step aboard - no dinghy's no crowded wharf. Suitable all ages young and old, particularly good for young children as boat sits flat on water (very stable and comfortable. Boarding requires a reasonable physical ability to step up onto boat from beach, there is a boarding platform and a few steps. Please be aware that beach loading means you will get wet to about calf deep, so remove shoes, roll up your pants and hop aboard!
