BY FAR, the BEST day in the Bay of Islands!

We were in Paihia 4 days and going out with David on She's a Lady was the best. Great skipper and a nice small group of people. We all got to take turns at the wheel or hoisting... read more

We were in Paihia 4 days and going out with David on She's a Lady was the best. Great skipper and a nice small group of people. We all got to take turns at the wheel or hoisting the sails when we wanted to (or just could chill out and watch the view). It was nice that it was just... More

The Bay of Islands can only really be seen and enjoyed via a trip of this kind. If all you want to do is swim with dolphins or see cathedral cove then go ahead and book a tour but this is the best by far. After a calm and relaxing sail out to sea from Paihia we made a turn... More

Our day on the water was absolutely incredible. We had Dolphins swim right up to our boat and saw penguins swimming as well. Glen was a wonderful captain and made us a lovely lunch that we enjoyed on the beach. A fabulous day!!!

We always enjoy a day out sailing on the water when we are on our holidays and this day proved to be a very good one. Safety issues were addressed before we set sail, Glenn was a very good, friendly and informative captain and encouraged us to help with crewing and taking the wheel, which we always enjoy. The trip... More

What a find! We were considering our activities the night before and most cruises around the BoI were booked out - until the Explore office told us about She's a Lady, which had two spots left! We couldn't have been more happy that our other options had fallen through, and we will recommend it as a first choice to others... More

Out of all the cruises that are out there, we wanted something tranquil, not crowded and not too pricy. "She's a Lady" is an adorable little boat that can 10-15 people can comfortably sail on. The captain was very friendly, resourceful and fun to sail with! We got to steer the wheel for a good portion of time - so... More

Great day cruising in the bay of Islands! Glen was responsive and efficient in the booking process (unlike one or two others I also tried to contact!) and was a great host throughout the day. Only decided to go at 9.20am this morning and was on the boat before 10am! The atmosphere was really laid back and chilled but at... More

What better way to see the Bay of Islands, NZ, than from a boat? There are lots of options available, but for people who like sailing you can't beat seeing the Bay from a sail yacht - *She's a Lady* fulfilled that for me. Nothing special about the boat; it's a standard cabin yacht. Owned by Glen Caulton, the yacht... More

We had arranged for a private charter being a small group from a cruise ship that tendered in Bay of Islands for a day. We were met by the ever smiling Skipper Dave (as we christened him!!) and inter a brief intro of the yach and safety demo we were off! Dave has to be one of the loveliest guys... More

It was a beautiful day on a great boat. We applied to a totally idyllic beach and you could take the kayak or simply take a walk on the island, from where they had a great view of the Bay aud to Iceland. Our skipper David was a very nice guy and could tell us many interesting things. Lunch is... More
