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.

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

I booked thru the web and we got everything what is mentionned on their site. The trip is whorth every penny just for the pleasure of meeting David. Some character. Very professionnal. One story din't wait the other. And a very good chef as for sandwiches, The sea was choppy (waves 2-3 meters high) and not much sun. But David... More

We had a day on 'she's a lady' with my parents. David the skipper was extremely experienced, incredibly passionate & very informative. We sailed out to the outer Bay of Islands & had some island time; kayaking, swimming & walking up to the top of the hill for a 360 degree view of the islands. David then provided a great... More

She's a lady was one of the best day excursions I've been on. The skipper was so enthusiastic and friendly and got all of us involved in sailing the boat regardless of experience. Sailing around the bay without an engine was the perfect way to see this beautiful area. On our return we even saw Orka whales and it was... More
