A day out on Phantom gives you a chance to get away from the crowds. This is adventure, relaxation and scenic beauty all in one with the personal atmosphere created by your hosts, Rick and Robin. Enjoy a great home cooked lunch amongst the beauty of the islands on this great owner- operator boat.

Rick and Robin were great hosts on their yacht; the ten-person limit makes for an uncrowded boat; and we spent most of the day under sail, tacking across the beautiful Bay of Islands--nothing could be better!

The cruise ship should shuttle you in to Russell's wharf and the Phantom leaves from there, so it should be easy! You do need reservations on the Phantom as they only take a maximum of 10 people.
