Te Matau a Māui Summer Sailing Series

Adventure with us

Join us on a unique, interactive and holistic sailing experience based on traditional and cultural Polynesian voyaging.

After Māori introductions, take to the water to engage and discover with Te Matau a Māui, the double-hulled waka, as a learned guide.

Take in the amazing Hawke Bay and its incredible landscapes from the outstanding perspective of the sea.

Gain an understanding of how Māori continue to navigate by the sun, moon, stars, planets, tides, and weather.

Get involved during the journey and try your hand at knot tying, sail rigging, and steering the waka as she moves through the ocean.

An authentic and transformative experience awaits you.

We look forward to warmly welcoming you aboard.

- Children must be accompanied by an adult (minimum ratio of 1 adult to 5 children).
