A great way to see the Akaroa area and to hear about its history and its wildlife, as well as some of its characters! The trip was made all the better by Ray's willingness to let me take the helm of his historic yacht, while he did the real work.

Excellent afternoon of sailing , Had never been on a wind powered boat but it was magnificent .
Steered the vessel as well.
A great commentary by Ray who is very informative and knowledgeable about his region and New Zealand . He made everyone on board feel special.

We decided on Ray's sailing experience as we wanted a "quiet" trip to see the wildlife in the area. We arrived at the wharf to find we were the only customers that afternoon and that made it a great trip for us. Ray was a super skipper who covered everything from a detailed safety brief to local history. As we had done some sailing before he allowed us to take the helm - we hadn't expected to be sailing while we were in NZ! His yacht is beautiful and he handles it expertly while keeping you informed of the flora and fauna of the area, and he knows where to find the wildlife.

We would certainly recommend Ray to anyone coming out to Akaroa.

Skipper Ray made us feel very comfortable aboard his beautiful yacht even though we had never been sailing before. It was a great experience, seeing dolphins and taking a turn at the helm. Akaroa is beautiful!
