Barefoot Sailing Adventures Reviews

Do it !

We had the best day with the Barefoot Sailing team. Beautiful people, magnificent day. You can choose to do as little or as much as you want…. Lunch was delicious. If you’re in Bay of Islands, don’t miss out on this!

Fantastic day out

Luke and Rachel were fantastic hosts; relaxed, knowledgeable and helpful. The catamaran was immaculate and the bean bags were lovely and cosy.  Destination, tour and sights were top notch – we even saw dolphins. Overall would definitely recommend.

A Magical Day in the Bay

Our trip through the Bay of Islands with Luke and Rachael was absolutely spectacular. From the moment we stepped onto their vessel, we were treated like kings…

Perfect Day Out

We appreciate the knowledge of wildlife they shared with us and their consideration for the wildlife and environment.



Our experience sailing with Barefoot was the ULTIMATE highlight of our entire two-week vacation.


Awesome day on the sea

Actually, it felt more like a day out with friends than a touristy tour! If you’re looking for a personalised experiences away from crowds – go for it!


Unforgettable sailing day

There are plenty of day trips in the Bay of Islands. But this one is for sure one of the best.


What a fantastic adventure

My speed obsessed 9 year old even commented that anyone who’d rather be on a motor launch is nuts… Sailing is waaaay better.
