Join us for a Day Sailing Adventure in the beautiful Bay of Islands, with a small personalised group.

Our main goal is for everyone to experience a day they'll never forget. You don't have to be a sailor to join us but you're more than welcome to take the wheel and help out. We can instruct and show you the ropes or you can just sit back, relax and let us do the work.

The trip includes an island stop, a healthy fresh lunch and activities.

Great day on a beautiful boat

We had a perfect day on board “She’s a Lady”. We were lucky with the weather, sunny all day but not too hot (though there was shade for people wanting that). We sailed for a... read more

We had a perfect day on board “She’s a Lady”. We were lucky with the weather, sunny all day but not too hot (though there was shade for people wanting that). We sailed for a couple of hours to “Stingray Bay” where we had an hour to swim, enjoy the beach, try the provided kayaks or hike to an amazing... More

OK, so I haven’t been on all the rest, but I would still have no doubt that this trip is the best in the Bay of Islands. She’s a Lady is a sweet little yacht meaning that the number of passengers is kept more intimate than the other larger operators. Dave as the host could not possibly have been more... More

Absolutely awesome boat trip. David was fantastic! We saw dolphins, a shark and a penguin all in an Eco friendly way. Epic sandwiches and beautiful views. David is super knowledgable, passionate, interesting and friendly. Big thank you for your "cap overboard" retrieval skills! Will recommend to anyone 👍🏻

Dave was such an amazing skipper! He's knowledgeable, funny and genuinely loves his job and the ocean! He got everyone involved in sailing. We had a wonderful day seeing dolphins and swimming in the bay. Go on this trip- you won't forget it!

I can highly recommend this trip, me and my wife thought that it was great value for money. The Captain Dave was very engaging and knowledgeable, with a wide array of stories throughout the day. Throughout the day he was always getting people involved in the sailing of the Yatch, whether it be steering the boat, raising or moving the... More

The most excellent day trip ever! Never been on a sailing yacht before and for this to be my first experience was by far the right choice. Skipper Dave had excellent local knowledge and made us feel safe throughout the trip. Excellent sandwich maker too. Definitely recommend this trip on She's a Lady.

This trip is great for beginners to learn the ropes (literally) of sailing. The captain David is very hands on and you can get as involved as you like. We got to steer the boat and hoist the sails. If you are not so into sailing, you can just relax on the boat. It is a great day trip. David... More

Highly recommend this sailing trip!! David is such a lovely, interesting guy. You can actually participate in the sailing on and you'll get to know a lot about the technique, the locals, activities around, and whatever you ask him. Not to mention the breath taking scenery. Will definitely book this trip again should I ever come back to beautiful Bay... More

Fantastic! Never been sailing before, was just great, Dave made it really fantastic. Could even steer myself. Saw blue penguins while hunting and dolphins, made a stop on a very beautiful island for hiking, kayaking or just relaxing. Food was just a sandwich and some fruit, but did not really matter. Must admit that on that day we had perfect... More
