The best way to take in this landscape is from the sea, so come for a sail on the only surveyed charter yacht in Rarotonga. On the cruise you may see whales,sharks or turtles (seasonal).Looking for fun and adventure come with us on the 58ft yacht Southern Cross and we can take you sailing on the deep blue waters of this island paradise.We can cater for groups up to 25. Private charters can also be arranged.(hen, stag, wedding, corporate).Outer island charters also available. « less

Had a great evening with these guys. My niece was over for her 21st with her partner. The sailing conditions were great. Got some great sunset shots and ones of the island from the sea. A must do.

We have just arrived back from yet again another wonderfull time in Rarotonga. This time was even better as we had a wonderful experience on the Southern Cross. Unfortunetly it was an overcast evening and we were unable to see a sunset, but this did not dampen our trip. Our hosts Keith and Nurse were charming hosts and made our... More

In mid October 2012 'Captain Keith' of the Southern Cross and 'First Mate' Nurse took us (wife + niece) on a fabulous sunset cruise out from Avarua Harbour (Rarotonga). I personally have done next to no sailing in my 49 years on this planet and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Keith and his crew are superbly competent sailors and are wonderful... More

We went on a cruise with Keith on the SV Southern Cross as a treat for my dad's birthday and had a great time! While I've been to Raro numerous times before, I've never seen the island from outside the reef and the view is fantastic. Keith is an excellent host and a real character. He was very entertaining and... More

Had a great sunset cruise with Captain Keith, knows his way around his boat and was very informative about things in and around Rarotonga! Even got to see some whales! Would go again for sure! Snacks were yummy too!

We hopped onboard the Southern Cross on the spur of the moment while walking around the wharf area, with a promise that "you might see some whales". We both kind of thought "yeah right" but got onboard anyway. Well within 300 metres of leaving the harbour we spotted three humpback whales and we spent the next two hours following them... More

We had 2 fantastic trips on the Southern Cross with Captian Keith, and his crew. The first trip was just us and Keith and an attempt at catching a big game fish...alas that was not to be but a wonderful afternoon out and an added bonus of spotting whales as we headed back into the harbour. We had enjoyed this... More

We had a awesome time on the southern cross, captain Keith was a crack up and made the cruise very entertaining, great views of the island and we were lucky to see whales. A yummy snack was served, we just sat back and enjoyed the cruise.

A lovely lunchtime cruise, with a spectacular view of the mountains of Rarotonga... a light snack provided, so if you want more of a substantial lunchtime, take some along with you :) It suited us just fine as we were full already. Thanks to our friendly skipper, Keith, for a pleasant few hours out on the water. Highly Recommended!

Three friends decided to celebrate a birthday on Aitutaki. Having sailed inter-island before and to/fro New Zealand long ago, the charter voyage from Rarotonga to Aitutaki appeard a good opportunity to reminisce "the good old days". The Southern Cross motor-sailed north one Saturday evening by setting a direct course between the two islands. Departing Avatiu harbour late at night set... More
