Sailing in New Zealand

For those who want to feel the wind in their hair, be outside, see great nature and simply lift the feet up and relax.... here a few sailing options in New Zealand.

Sailing in Abel Tasman National Park will offer stunning vistas of coastal New Zealand as well as any feeling of potential worries dissolving when you are lying and relaxing on a yacht feeling the sea roll under you. There's just something about a sail, sun and water that makes a holiday ooze tranquility and enjoyment.

Abel Tasman Sailing from $113

For those that simply want to go into Abel Tasman National Park, see nature, beautiful views and simply lay down and feel the sun and ocean breeze, this sailing is definitely for you! This is pure relaxation on a catamaran sail which means you can even lay down on the netting and simply watch the world go by! This one is not as hands on as the Bay Of Islands however, it will take you to a part of the Abel Tasman where you can walk off the yacht and lay on the beach or go for a swim. It also sails you past some pretty special spots including the iconic "Split Apple Rock" as well as a seal colony! Make sure you pack some delicious snacks/ lunch as well as a book so you can maximize on chilling out and watch someone else do all the sailing work for you!
