The Bay of Islands Walking Weekend
Greater Bay - R Tucker Thompson Overnight Adventure- Walk 10

The R. Tucker Thompson is an iconic tall ship based in the Bay of Islands. As far as an activity in the Bay of Islands goes - a sail on the R. Tucker Thompson is often voted the best day of any holiday!! As the R Tucker is not on its summer schedule we are lucky enough to be offered this opportunity to use her on the Bay of Islands Walking Weekend as an overnight trip.

This is a once in a life opportunity to stay on the R Tucker Thompson – see the stars, go to sleep listening to the kiwi and wake with the dawn chorus. Magical and unique – Go where the wind takes us, help sail the ship and climb the rigging.

We can’t plot your journey as we don’t know what the wind and weather will be doing but the Greater Bay overnight expedition will be led with knowledgeable guides who will introduce you to the intricacies of the environment, whilst you explore and enjoy the rich diversity of the Bay. There will definitely be some walking!

Walking, watching, listening, participating, conversation with conservation. Contribute to the restoration of these precious islands by assisting with conservation tasks, pull some weeds, plant a tree.

There are 10 berths available, one double. All meals are provided on board, the Tucker presents an opportunity to participate and enjoy all the Bay has to offer. All your meals are provided. If you wish to purchase alcohol you can do so on board at reasonable prices, but no BYO. You will need to bring towels and bedding (sleeping bag or duvet. Sheet and pillow)
