One-of-a-kind sailing adventures, with a focus on freedom and flexibility

We offer a wide variety of skippered and Bareboat private charters.  Are you looking for an overnight charter, or just an afternoon?

Skippered

With decades of sailing, skippering and teaching under his belt, Skipper Randall Richards knows Lake Wanaka. Not one for tourist traps and run-of-the-mill tours, he’s thrilled to show adventurers of all kinds the true beauty of Lake Wanaka.
