Sail Barbary and the Tiaki Promise

Visiting the Maori Rock Carvings aboard Barbary means you are being a good New Zealand guardian.

If you have seen the logo or posters as you travel around NZ you may have wondered what it means.

It is called the Tiaki Promise #tiakipromise

Tiaki means to care for people, place and culture

New Zealand is precious, and everyone who lives and travels here has a responsibility to look after it. The Tiaki Promise is a commitment to care for New Zealand, for now and for future generations.

By following the Tiaki Promise, you are making a commitment to New Zealand. To act as a guardian, protecting and preserving our home.

We can help you be a good NZ guardian while sailing on Barbary II.

  • Firstly you are showing you care for the environment as we are an electric eco friendly boat. Please enjoy our eco commentary on sustainability for the lake. It’s a success story!  
  • Dispose of your rubbish thoughtfully and respect your fellow passengers.
  • Drive safely when you leave.

That's all you need to do, it is easy to be a guardian.
