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.

The three days, two nights voyage includes:
- Three meals plus morning and afternoon tea
- Trees for planting on selected Bay of Islands location
- Certificate of planting (including GPS co-ordinates of planting)
- Project Island Song tee-shirt
- Donation to Project Island Song's replanting and regeneration costs
- Guided walk to Whangamumu's old Whaling station
- Guided walk to Kauri stand
- Guided walk to Cape Brett Lighthouse
- Accommodation on board in bunk style communal facilities

Combined with a rich cultural history that is deeply intertwined with this area, this trip provides an authentic experience that can only be experienced by a few. If you are genuinely interested in an authentic guided experience of the Bay of Islands land and marine environment, then these expeditions are not to be missed. Only limited places available.
