Private charters offer the best in convenience and flexibility. Sail from island to island and set your own pace and sail wherever the winds and weather permit. Book  an overnight charter in paradise or sail for an afternoon.  
Sailing on Lake Wanaka is worlds away, where time stands still.

Skippered & Bareboat


With decades of sailing, skippering and teaching under his belt, Skipper Randall Richards knows Lake Wanaka like the back of his hand. 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! He also provides Sailing Courses, allowing you to learn the basics in just a few hours!

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!


Private Skippered Charters

This sailing trip was a unique way to explore Lake Wanaka, to feel truly connected to the water and the beautiful mountains surrounding you. I highly recommend it!
