A peaceful way to explore the Bay of Islands. On board lend a hand to hoist the sails. Sit back and relax as the sails catch the breeze and the 50ft catamaran skims across the waves.
We cruise many of the 144 islands that are the beautiful Bay of islands. Sailing under the guidance of professional crew provides a relaxed way for guests to explore the bay. We are only yacht licensed to swim and view wild dolphins in the Bay. A DOC license allows guests on Carino to swim with dolphins.
Interaction with the dolphins (especially swimming) is at the dolphins’ invitation. Crew are trained in recognising signs of avoidance or non-interest by dolphins. DOC regulations mean that there are times we cannot swim, during these times we can watch and appreciate the magic of wild dolphins.
For your island experience, your skipper will find a suitable calm cove to enjoy. There is a wide range of activities available at our island stopover. Snorkelling tours, Nature walks and swimming. A BBQ lunch is held back aboard Carino NZ.
