What to Expect

What better way to explore the peaceful waters of the Bay of Islands than on board the "R. Tucker Thompson" tall ship? This replica of a 100-year-old schooner looks just like a working ship of the 18th century and you can spend the day on board exploring the bays and beaches of this beautiful Maritime Park. Operated by a charitable trust, funds raised from our sailing go to support our youth development voyages over winter.
