Stop At: Redoubt Street, Taupō 3330, New Zealand

At the Taupo Marina, join a professional crew for a sail on Fearless, a 36-foot (12-meter) ketch with capacity for up to 18 passengers. This 2.5-hour scenic journey on great Lake Taupo delivers you to the Māori Rock Carvings at Mine Bay (or Okuta Bay) while taking in the popular Te Kopua and Acacia bays en route.  

The boat sails under full sail or, depending on wind and weather conditions, gently meanders when waters are truly calm using a quit inboard diesel motor. Relax and enjoy the views or join in with hoisting the sails — it's up to you. Either way, you'll experience the romance of a sailing adventure aboard this graceful vessel. 

Duration: 10 minutes
