We had a wonderful time with John and Ginny of JG Adventures Ltd, sailing on the harbour with our american visitors. Lots of humour and very gracious hosts, one of our visitors got to steer the boat home which is a passion of his. Would highly recommend these amazing people to everyone, thank you so much John and Ginny for an overwhelming day on the water!! Jean & Peter

We enjoyed 3 great days with John who is not only a superb sailor/skipper, but also a wonderful host! He has a great sense of humour and makes the best cocktails I have ever tasted :-)
During our 3 days we were able to swim, snorkel, kayak or just relax. We also visited beautiful islands and coves and saw a myriad of native birds.
I would definitely recommend choosing John for your sailing adventure.

John is great! I was to arrive in NZ on the 11th and on a days notice John agreed to take us out on a 3 day sail. I think I have figured out a new way to deal with jet lag!
We had a great relaxing time. We sailed to several island which we got to swim snorkel and bird watch at! I would recommend John and his boat to all who are looking for a fantastic fun relaxing sailing adventure!!

I had a friend flying into NZ and I wanted to make the trip special right from the start, I called John and not only did he organise us to do a trip but he made some great suggestions to improve on my very scattered idea.
We spent 3 days out sailing, motoring, swimming, walking, snorkelling and relaxing.
It could not have been better!
I have lived in NZ a lot of my life and I saw more native birds on one walk with John than I have ever seen.
This is an experience not to be missed and, as it turns out, the best way to get over jet lag!!!!!!
My wife and I were looking to do something different for our upcoming (and much needed) vacation to New Zealand. We realized that neither of us had ever really sailed before and decided to give it a try. After much searching we found JG Adventures. Let us tell you that it made for the best vacation we have ever had! John (the Captain and cook) made us feel not like customers but his friends. He not only took us to some great coves, beaches, and islands but also allowed us to experience sailing hands-on. We recommend JG Adventures if you want an amazing vacation and the ability to experience and tour New Zealand from a different perspective.
An amazing day out on water with John. Thank you!
Sailing with John was really fun. Suitable for anyone from beginners to experienced. Cruising from Auckland has plenty to do - bird sanctuaries, little coves to anchor in, swimming, snorkelling, wineries. walks on the islands, beaches..... Great food, great company - highly recommend
John gave us a perfect day out and a first time sailing experience, not to be forgotten. We sailed out of Auckland harbour over to Rangitoto, launched the dinghy and paddled to shore, then continued the day by walking to the summit of this interesting volcanic island. John's knowledge of the island, professionalism on board and attention to detail generated overall confidence, while at the same time ensured good light hearted fun in a relaxed atmosphere. A steady supply of snacks and drinks added to the experience. Our day sailing with John will go down as one of the main highlights of our New Zealand holiday.
