Looking for top summer activities in Taupo? How about joining the locals on an eco-friendly boutique
sail cruise across the lake? A Taupo sailing trip on board the beautifully restored 1920s yacht Barbary is nothing like your run-of-the-mill scenic cruise. We don’t just promise the best sail cruise on the lake – we deliver it! Locally owned and operated for 30 years, our eco-friendly boat offers year-round Taupo water activities the Kiwi way:
- lounge in a bean bag, looking out over sparkling bays or stormy waters – we’re equipped for anything
- go for a swim below the Maori rock carvings on Barbary’s Maori tours & learn about Taupo’s history
- help hoist the sails, take a turn at the wheel or enjoy the sun on our spacious deck
- experience a gourmet BBQ & movie cruise or test your skills at trout fishing
You can even make Barbary your own for a day/night. Our classic yacht charter is a favourite amongst locals for stag/hen parties, corporate entertainment, Christmas functions, wedding cruises, team building trips and family outings.
