The Shared Day Charter

The Bay of Islands boat charter for small groups, and big adventures!


144 Islands to explore

Begin your unforgettable boat charter in the Bay of Islands with a relaxing morning sail. As the gentle breeze carries us across the Bay, we’ll take our time to carefully select one of the 144 islands to stop at and explore. Indulge in an afternoon of your choosing, whether it’s leisurely strolling along the sandy beach, unwinding on the deck, or partaking in exciting water activities.

After our island time, you’ll be served lunch on deck, featuring freshly picked vegetables from our own garden. We’ll then set sail homeward, a day packed of fun on your very own Bay of Islands boat charter.
