Eco-sail with R. Tucker Thompson

tucker thumb150Two iconic Northland organisations offer one unique experience! 

At the end of April 2016, Northland’s tall ship the R. Tucker Thompson is partnering up with us to offer a two day, one night eco sailing experience in the beautiful Bay of Islands.



This is your opportunity to visit the islands, hear the birdsong for yourself and see the difference our work is making. You’ll get a chance to help plant trees, listen to the birds and gain an understanding of the programme first hand. At the same time, you’ll be supporting our efforts, as part of your voyage fee will be donated directly to Project Island Song.

Normally the domain of Northland youth, this is also a rare opportunity for adults to experience this beautiful gaff-rigged schooner on an overnight stay, waking up to the birdsong in the Bay. Morning swims will be optional!

  • Two days, one night on board a traditional tall ship
  • Accommodation on board in bunk style communal facilities
  • Three meals plus morning and afternoon tea
  • Trees for planting on either Moturua or Urupukapuka Island
  • $100 Donation to Project Island Song’s programme for pest management

Places are limited so get in touch with now to register interest!
