Great way to spend a few peaceful hours on the water, Ray is a fun and interesting skipper with lots of knowledge of the local area. A must in Akaroa

The lovely former racing yacht Manutara, the cool Captain Ray, the MANY Hector dolphins, the schools of krill, beautiful Akaroa . . . I don't know where to begin in order to convey adequately what a great time we had. While many of the other tour boats were fully-loaded and used engine propulsion most of the time, A-Class had the 6 of us sailing in style and taking turns at the wheel. Describing A-Class as "not to be missed" is an understatement!

In a word, brilliant.

From start to finish Captain Ray was a font of information about all things nautical, historical together with an excellent knowledge of the local wildlife, he also, one has to say, a really good sense of humour.

This is a proper boat and on this trip you are encourage to have a go on the helm, thoroughly exhilarating. Don't miss this one.

We had a wonderful morning sailing with Ray, a very experienced yachtsman . There was just one other couple on board and we had a great time, each of us taking it in turns to steer the boat. Ray is extremely knowledgable and we learnt a great deal about local history and the local wild life. It was a fantastic experience which we thoroughly recommend.
