Tropicbird Sailing - Explore, Dream, Discover
Explore the crystal clear waters of Rarotonga beyond the reef
Dream of the Polynesian and European explorers of old
Discover more about the islands precious eco-system and marine life
Experience our friendly and informative introduction to Rarotonga - to the marine ecology and history of the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the Cook Islands as we chart our way around the outer reef, using the Pacific tradewinds on our eco-friendly and classic sailing vessel, a 36 foot trimaran; the modern day equivalent of the traditional Polynesian Vaka.
Sea life includes huge varieties of fish, turtles and migratory humpback whales that visit Rarotonga from July to October on their route through the Cook Islands. The whales love to swim very close to this unthreatening sailing vessel, although we ensure we keep a respectful distance.
You will be looked after by our friendly local crew who will endeavour to make your time aboard as memorable as possible!
