CHARTERS ON PAUSE: During these interesting times with NZ's borders shut, we're putting the charters on pause until we've got sufficient international traffic coming to Wanaka. Do keep an eye on our Instagram and Facebook posts, as we'll still be out on the water, on educational or personal adventures, so you can see what's up with the lake conditions and wonderful scenes.  

Enjoy an unforgettable, private & personalised sailing experience 

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? Would you like Skipper Randall Richards to do all the work, or are you qualified to take our yacht out yourself? Whatever your preferences, wherever you’d like to go, we’re ready to make your sailing Wanaka adventure one you’ll remember for years to come.

Private Charters

 

 

 

Private charters offer the best in convenience and flexibility. Sail from island to island,  set your own pace and sail wherever the winds and weather permit.

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.

For experienced, qualified sailors, grab your family and friends and take the Astrolabe wherever the winds lead you! Our bareboat charters can be booked for the afternoon, a full day, or even overnight, giving you unfettered freedom for the ultimate sailing Wanaka experience.
