Taupo Sailing Adventure Kindred Spirit

Taupo Sailing Adventures is a family owned and operated business. Go with Kindred Spirit and experience the beauty of a scenic sailing tour to the Māori Rock Carvings, one of the most extraordinary contemporary carvings in the world, with more comfort on Lake Taupo’s largest sailing yacht. Only viewable from the water, the likeness of Ngātoroirangi towers 14-meters above Lake Taupo, surrounded by over 40 smaller carvings. Escape from hectic life for a while and enjoy the breathtaking views around. Listen to our experienced skippers and learn about the history of the lake. Give the crew a hand hoisting the sails and take a turn on the wheel or just snuggle under some blankets and enjoy the wide selection of drinks. Cruise in superior comfort with large deck space and a lounge under the main deck seating up to 12 people. We have a fridge and a freezer aboard as well as a high quality sound system. The boat has just been completely restored and is up to the newest standards, fully equipped for safety and enjoyment. As Kindred Spirit offers a faster sailing experience, you will have more time to enjoy the carvings or to take a dip and swim in the crystal clear waters of the largest freshwater lake in Australasia (weather dependent). On selected trips you can find complimentary drinks and pizza.
