Totally a must do forget the hole in the rock. This is a totally interactive tall ship, from climbing the rigging to being captain. What a beautiful ship it is. All fully supervised. There was only 11 people with us, which turned out to be another bonus. Great for all ages.

Our day sailing on the Tucker was awesome! Crew was fantastic and meal was yummy! The history of the area was presented very well. Truly a beautiful day.

I have always longed to sail on a Tall ship, so could not miss the opportunity to do so in one of the most beautiful stretches of water in the world. Captain Tim had a crew of three and as many of the passengers who wanted to get involved with hauling on ropes or climbing into the mast tops. Sailing close to the many islands that give the Bay of Islands it's name, we saw sea bird and sea lion colonies and had dolphins playing with the bow wave. Anchoring in the shallow bay of a deserted island we went ashore to walk through the forest and sunbathed on the sandy beach while the crew prepared a simple but delicious lunch. Making our way back under full sail, I had the opportunity to take the wheel and was trusted to guide this beautiful ship into Harbour. There are many different tours in this area but this one is an unique and unmissable experience.

Great captain, great crew and great boat. Had a fantastic time. Took the helm while sailing, climb the rigging and swung the the yard arm. All in all a great time was had by the whole family. The weather was great, just needed a little more breeze. Would do again. ,

Our Tall Ship trip was cancelled due to stormy weather. We were disappointed but the seas were way to rough. We received a full reimbursement. Thanks !

The staff were really friendly and even returned my brothers jumper when he so stupidly left it on the ship. Thanks team!

Book it now, you will have a truly wonderful day to treasure. Brilliant friendly crew, making all ship mates feel at ease.
At 56 it was great to have the opportunity and encouragement to climb the rigging and even take the helm of this great ship.
Ask the crew about the boats history documented in two books.
Lunch was great too.
Just BRILLIANT

Had an amazing sail out in the Bay of Islands. The rope swing off the side was fantastic. It was great to be supporting educational opportunities for local kids and to have a blast doing it. Our crew was very knowledgeable and friendly. The boat is designed to sail with a very small crew of 4 or 5 people, so while there were opportunities for the 50 odd passengers to help sail the Tucker if they wanted to, it was first-come first-serve and I didn't get a chance to participate as much as I was hoping to. That didn't matter though, because we spent a lot of time out on the bowsprit and up in the rigging just hanging out. Great time from start to finish!

A great day and well worth it. Getting to see isolated bays you can't approach from land.
Crew very friendly and informative.

A great introduction to what New Zealand has to offer. Great views seen in the quiet of sail rather than noise of motor power. Steve and crew kept us entertained and the bbq lunch was excellent.

The cruise and crew were amazing. The trip to an uninhabited island was interesting. We had a very nice lunch of chicken and salad. Climbing the mast was made easy and fun. Great day!

A great trip. The crew were wonderful, the lunch really tasty and it was the highlight of our trip to the Bay of Islands. My husband got to climb the rigging. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

We had a great time with the crew and captain. My wife Bonnie climbed the rigging I was chicken, we had an awesome lunch, a great hike and a great experience. The icing on the cake was when three killer whales swam along side of us and gave us some terrific photos. We recommend this trip to anyone and will go again when we return to New Zealand next year.
