Vigilant’s shared day charter

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

Your Bay of Islands boat charter will start with a relaxing morning sail. Afterwards, we will choose one of the 144 islands to stop at and explore. You have the option to spend your afternoon strolling along the sandy white shoreline, relaxing on the beach or, if you prefer, taking your pick of the water activities offered. Vigilant carries kayaks and snorkel equipment for you to take full advantage of during your magical Bay of Islands boat charter with us.

Our fully equipped sailing yacht offers you the very best in quality comfort and relaxation. Lunch, enjoyed on the yacht deck or as a picnic on the beach, is hand prepared for you by Chef and Skipper Nik.

Dolphins, penguins and seabirds are frequently sighted and the scenery while sailing in the Bay of Islands is spectacular so remember to pack your camera.

Standard Day Charter – Maximum of 10 passengers

Includes a delicious lunch made by our onboard chef.  If you’re a vegetarian or prefer gluten-free meals, please let us know. It’s not a problem!
