Day Sailing Charters in the Bay of Islands

Enjoy the private use of Cool Change for a day charter sailing adventure you will never forget.

Be it a special occasion such as an anniversary, a day on the water for couples or families, a small wedding onboard or on a secluded beach. Have a relaxed business meeting while enjoying the beautiful Bay of Islands, a corporate team building day or just a fun day out to show appreciation to your staff.

Your Cool Change Experience can start from any pre-arranged beach or jetty near your accommodation. Trips are generally 6 hours duration, but extra time can be arranged. A two hour stopover allows plenty of time to enjoy a delicious lunch and to participate in your preferred activities such as swimming, standup paddleboarding (SUP) or exploring our local islands and beaches. Be sure to bring sunblock, swimming gear, a towel and perhaps a light jacket for cooler days. For your day charter the skipper will choose a course to best take advantage of the day’s weather as well as guest’s special interests.

Cool Change is safe and enjoyable for all ages including children.  If preferred, we can pick you up early afternoon for an evening return.  Please bring personal gear such as bathing suits, sunglasses, a hat and a warm jacket for later in the day. A camera is recommended too.
