We were staying in Waiheke for a few days and took the Te Aura out with Maire and Phil for half a day. They were absolutely brilliant - we wanted to sail, do a bit of fishing, see some more of the island from the sea, and we did all of that and more!
They were very flexible - we were originally going to go out the day before, but Maire sent a text saying no wind that day, and they were happy to rearrange for the following day when there was great wind. We thought this was a great touch.
The boat is lovely, they provided some great snacks which we weren't expecting, and were generally great hosts on the boat. I did some proper sailing (thanks for the tuition Phil) and my husband caught fish which Phil filleted pretty much as they were caught.
We would 100% recommend Island Sailing, it was a great trip with lovely people. One other great touch - I left my fleece on board, and the next morning Maire bombed down to the wharf to get it to me as we were getting on the ferry back to Auckland. Great service, thank you!
