Nik – The Skipper

New Zealand born and bred, Nik was lucky enough to spend his childhood exploring the northland coastline. His favorite methods of marine exploration include sailing, motor boats, scuba diving, free diving and surfing. His father being a boat builder inspired a deep love for classic yachts. After travelling abroad for multiple years he decided it was time to buy his dream boat, the gorgeous Vigilant and set up some roots at home. 

Qualifications collected along the way are:

RYA/MCA Yacht Masters offshore
Maritime New Zealand Local launch operator
STCW 95
MNZ Radio Operator
Coastal medic

Nat – the Deckhand

Straight from the East Coast of Canada, Nathalie flew to New Zealand and fell in love with it’s marine life and coastlines. After spending a few years travelling around she was lucky enough to meet Nik, she fell in love with his boat and the rest is history! She has since learned how to sail, scuba dive, surf and much more. As your deckhand she will be on board with you to make sure your day is just as memorable as it should be!

 

Sailing is our passion and we just so happen to be lucky enough to be doing it in one of the most beautiful places in the world.We’re excited to meet you and show you everything the Bay of Islands has to offer.
