A rare opportunity to sail the Northland coast on board the iconic tall ship the R.Tucker Thompson!  On our Eco-Sail voyage, you will not only get the chance to actually visit normally inaccessible, remote locations but also play your own part in a keeping this environment pristine and special through support of Project Island Song.  

Onshore guided walks will take you to hidden Kauri trees, deep in the native bush; then, in a reflection of more modern times a visit to a 19th century whaling station with its grim past and a tour inside the iconic Cape Brett Lighthouse, recently restored by DOC.

To reach these remote locations, you'll have the opportunity to sail a tall ship – a graceful reminder of times past when man's impact on the environment was only minimal.
