In what better way could you indulge yourself than aboard this Unique and ‘Classic’ Ocean Sailing Yacht. "Welcome Aboard Manutara for an Exciting and Unforgettable 'Personal Adventure' around Beautiful Akaroa Harbour." It truly a REAL Sailing experience.

Step aboard Manutara. A 47-foot, beautifully maintained RARE classic ‘Ocean Sailing Yacht’. Original 1946 vintage. One of the last ‘A-Class’ Keelers to be built.

Indulge yourselves on this 2½ hour UNIQUE, exciting, unforgettable Akaroa Harbour Cruise. Suitable for all levels of fitness. No previous sailing experience necessary. The Ultimate Akaroa Water Activity or Harbour and Wildlife Cruise.

Sail the Classic Yacht Manutara, on our Akaroa Harbour & Wildlife Cruise. Rated the best activity in Akaroa New Zealand. It's the Best of things to do in Akaroa NZ.

Look out for the rare Hector’s dolphins (the world’s smallest) or spot the white flippered penguins bobbing across the waves. See Akaroa dolphins, Akaroa penguins and other wildlife up close. Most often you’ll be surprised to hear penguins calling to each other and dolphins breathing BEFORE you see them! Sea life is drawn to play in the pressure wave created by the unique shape of Manutara’s hull, and the silence as she glides through the water under sail alone. Enjoy an encounter with wildlife, on their terms, without disrupting their environment.

We had the best day ever in Akaroa onboard Ray's yacht. He is so knowledgeable on the history and wildlife. No noisy engine to spoil the experience. We highly recommend the experience
