WHAT TO EXPECT
Set sail for an adventure like no other at the Mine Bay Maori Rock Carvings on Great Lake Taupo. These Maori Carvings are most likely the largest type of their type in the world, at over 14-metres high – you've really got to see them, to believe them!
What makes the carvings even cooler is that they are only accessible by boat... so that's where Sail Barbary comes in. With over 34 years of experience, Sail Barbary knows Taupo Moana (Lake Taupo) like the back of their hand.
On board their lovingly restored classic, white sailing yacht you'll feel truly at home. Listen as your experienced guide explains the cultural significance behind the carvings and offers you some incredible picture post card moments. Get your cameras at the ready and don't forget to #maorirockcarvings! Feel free to BYO (Bring Your Own) food and drink in true kiwi fashion – is there anything better than popping a cold one as you soak up the sun?
Also, Sail Barbary are all about getting hands on, so if you're after a bit of sailing action we'd love you to help hoist the sails and have a go at steering the wheel. Plus, if the wind dies down Sail Barbary's eco-friendly electric engine will kick in and have you sailing silently across the water. They also provide warm ponchos to keep you cosy - what pros.
This really is an unforgettable sailing trip to the Mine Bay Maori Rock Carvings!
