Aotearoa One Waka Sailing

For a limited time only over Autumn/Winter 2017 the Maritime Museum will be offering a unique sailing experience on the waka Aotearoa One. Climb aboard this special vessel for a one hour sailing trip out on the Waitemata (Auckland) Harbour while learning about traditional Maori and Polynesian culture and sailing methods.

Aotearoa One is a modern take on a traditional waka and was launched in 2003 for Te Wananga o Aotearoa at their Mangere Campus in Auckland.

Waka sailings are available at the museum from April 18th  - August 1st 2017 in partnership with Te Toki Voyaging Trust. 

There is unfortunately no wheelchair access to the waka.

* We supply life jackets for children from 10kg up to the age of 14 years. Children under 10kg cannot join a waka cruise.
