R Tucker Thompson Sundowner Sail

R Tucker Thompson Sundowner Sail

Experience a day on the water on the R. Tucker Thompson, a traditional gaff-rigged schooner with her own unique history. Choose to make it an active adventure, or simply relax while the crew command this impressive ship as it sails around the Bay of Islands.

The Late Afternoon Sail onboard the R Tucker Thompson is a special experience.

On this unique sailing ship view secluded islands as the ship sails across the sheltered waters of the Bay. Enjoy an antipasto platter and glass of wine as sun starts to set in the west. Antipasto platters are shared amongst the group. Wine and other beverages are not included in the price and can be purchased from the cash bar.
