R. Tucker Thompson, Opua, Bay of Islands


All Ages

History, culture and tall ship sailing!

A unique voyage on the ship R.Tucker Thompson in partnership with the New Zealand Historic Places Trust, has been charted for you to rediscover the first encounters between people, land and sea. Starting with the first Māori settlers then early Europeans arrivals, Māori and Europeans learned, sometimes with tragic consequences, about each others cultures and environment.

Our Historic Northland Voyage provides you with the rare opportunity of exploring our coastal waters, so rich in history, from the kind of sailing ship that was so familiar here in the 19th century. Like the early mariners, you will view and experience our shores from the sea. You will learn about significant encounters that took place, especially those between local tribes and early European visitors. But more than this, you have the chance to be part in the tall ship sailing experience, helping set the sails alongside the professional crew.

The trips, now in their third year have received rave reviews so don't miss out. Whether you are from New Zealand, Australia or are simply interested in learning more about how this nation developed, this is a very special experience.

Your trip cost includes all accommodation on board, three meals a day, a guest historian and handouts.
