Very nice sailing day. Natalie the captain was professional, kind, chose a nice itinerary, and adapted the sailing to the needs of the group. Nice, sturdy boat and we didn’t have to work as deck hands because she was able to handle it so well. Great day!

My partner and I had a fabulous day out on Vigilant. We enjoyed learning more about features in the Bay of Islands and were highly impressed by the fresh salad and smoked chicken lunch which had been organically grown. My partner was thrilled to be able to sail the boat (under supervision) as he had never sailed before. It completely made his weekend and for me, going sailing on my birthday with such fabulous hosts was just ideal.

Though the weather was not perfect, we still had a great time with Nick and his friends. Wonderful trip for family which enjoy quiet sailing, may want to back again in summer.

We had a great experience on the Vigilant Yacht Charters and had it all to ourselves. Nik and Nath were so lovely and friendly and explained the wildlife and about the Bay of Islands. The yacht was cute and had so much character. We explored the Bay of Islands and went to Motuarohia Island. We spent an hour or so to explore the island and walk up to the amazing lookout point and they had prepared a cheese and cracker platter for us when we got back. This was a highlight of our trip and we had a lovely time. We would definitely recommend this experience.
