Before Your Trip

You can park anywhere at the boat harbour on Redoubt Street or Ferry Road. There are no time restrictions.

Kindred Spirit and Tiua are located at Berths #16 and #17 of the Taupo Marina, Redoubt Street.

As much as we would like everyone to experience the unforgettable feeling of a really good sail we unfortunately can’t take wheelchairs and prams as we have no possibility to secure them on board.

This may become a safety hazard, especially if the yacht starts to lean over.
