Carino Sailing and Dolphin Adventures
Come Sailing with Carino Sailing and Dolphin Adventures.
A peaceful way to explore the Bay of Islands. On board lend a hand to hoist the mainsail and jib. Sit back and relax as the sails catch the breeze and the 50ft catamaran skims across the waves. We cruise past Motuarohia Islands and twin lagoon bay and many of the other 144 islands that make up 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 Department of conservation license allows guests on Carino to swim with dolphins if conditions allow.
Interaction with the dolphins (especially swimming) is at the dolphins’ invitation. Skippers and crew are trained in recognising signs of avoidance or non-interest by dolphins. Also DOC regulations means that there are times we can not swim. If dolphins are feeding, resting or if any pod contains juveniles or calves, during these times we can watch and appreciate the magic of wild dolphins.
We have several favorite islands that CARINO NZ can stop at. Your skipper will find a suitable calm cove to enjoy. There is a wide range of activities available at our island stopover. Snorkeling tours, Nature walks and swimming. A BBQ lunch is held back aboard Carino NZ, with a fully licensed bar.
