Discover the Maori Rock Carvings on Great Lake Taupo with Sail Barbary


Taupo’s Mine Bay Maori Rock Carvings are possibly the largest of their type in the world and are a must-see attraction, only accessible by boat. Sail Barbary has been offering cruises to these carvings since 1983. 

Sit back and relax as Sail Barbary takes you right up close to the 14-meter high rock art. You’re guaranteed amazing photo opportunities as you experience one of life’s postcard moments. You can even BYO (Bring Your Own) food and beverages. Things really couldn’t get more Kiwi!

Soak up the sun or roll up your sleeves; you can take the wheel, help hoist the sails or just sit back and enjoy the view.  We’re equipped for all conditions; if the wind dies down, Sail Barbary‘s eco-friendly electric engine kicks in, moving noiselessly through the water. When the wind is up, you can enjoy sailing without salty sea-spray and noisy outboard motors. Warm ponchos are supplied.

Sail Barbary cruises to the Maori Rock Carvings depart daily at 10.30am, 2.00pm, 5.00pm & 7.30pm (Evening cruises Summer Only).
