R Tucker Thompson Day Sail
Price from £81 per person
Experience the Bay of Islands as they did in Captain Cook's time by sailing on board this special historic ship with a unique history that was built in Northland by Northlanders. Become part of the crew for a day and help set the sails, climb the rigging or ride the bowsprit. Or simply relax and let the friendly crew look after you. At lunch go for a swim, or head ashore and explore one of the many beautiful islands in the bay.
The R Tucker Thompson is a 19th century Tall Ship. She is a 28 metre (85 foot), gaff rigged, square tops'l schooner. Gaff rigged means that her mainsail has four sides; square tops'l refers to the two square topsails.
