Taupo’s Mine Bay Maori Rock Carvings are a must-see attraction, only accessible by boat. Sail Barbary has been offering cruises to these carvings since 1982.
In 2010 we started our journey to being 100% sustainable. We converted from a noisy smelly diesel engine to an electric motor. So sit back and relax as we take you through our sustainability journey along with commentary on the eco side of the lake, living within a Volcano and the cultural significance of the Maori Rock carvings.
You will get right up close to the 14-meter high rock art for amazing photo opportunities as you experience one of life’s postcard moments - the whole package 'it's a unique and authentic experience'.
Soak up the evening sun or roll up your sleeves; you can take the wheel, help hoist the sails or just sit back and enjoy the view.
We’re equipped for all conditions. Sail Barbary‘s eco-friendly electric engine moves noiselessly through the water. When the wind is up, you can enjoy sailing without salty sea-spray and noisy outboard motors. Warm ponchos are supplied. Swimming is encouraged.
Sail Barbary sunset cruise cruises depart daily at 5.00pm and 7.30pm - Summer Only.
Your 2.5 hour cruise also includes:
- a glass of wine/beer or soft drink
- a Sail Barbary postcard and discount vouchers
PLUS you can BYO (Bring Your Own) prepared food & beverages.
Valid from September- April.
