About Barefoot Sailing Adventures
Sailing is a great way to explore the Bay of Islands. Join us for an Island Hopper Day Cruise, enjoy a 2hr island stopover with snorkeling, paddle boarding, bush walks, beach picnics . Or take a Sundowner Evening Cruise (Dec-March) for an evening sail in the inner area of the Bay of Islands, take a refreshing dip, enjoy the scenery as the day is coming to an end. Our boat, Kopiko, is a modern 33ft catamaran, the boat sits flat while sailing (no leaning over) which offers a comfortable sailing experience for everyone! With bean bags for lounging, or cushioned bench seating for relaxing. Have a go at sailing, or simply kick back, and relax, enjoy a day in the Bay of Islands with the Barefoot Crew.

Loved our day on board the catarmaran, Luke was en excellent host making coffee while we chilled on the bean bags onboard enjoying the views. Moturoa Island was a great stop for lunch lots of beautiful bird life to be seen in the bush and then paddle boarding and snorkeling before sailing back to paihia as the sun started to descend such a relaxing way to see some of the bay of islands. Highly recommend this tour
