Karitane Charters Caprice Sailing Catamaran

Day Sail

Relaxing aboard the Caprice

Caprice Day Sail Karitane

Our day sails are always planned around you as well as the weather, but, as we say on Caprice "Every day is perfect for something!". Windy days are perfect for sailing, albatross viewing, or, anchoring in sheltered bays enjoying lazy lunches or a swim and snorkel. Calm days are good for fishing, swimming with dolphins or just hanging out in the nets, sunning yourself as we check out the coastline.  
Wet-suits and snorkel gear can be provided, or feel free to bring your own (your own fits best!).
There is always a chance for fishing and snorkeling and lots of wildlife viewing. We try to gather seafood when we can for our lunches and we will show you how to prepare and cook this on board. 



Full Day: $800 for the whole boat with a maximum of 15 persons

Please bring the following along:
- White soled (or soft soled) shoes (no black soles)
- Warm clothing
You are welcome to bring your own alcoholic refreshments on board, and we also have a full galley aboard so we can heat your food and serve for you if you wish.

Overnight Sail

Overnight Sail

Enjoy a day sail with all the activities that the day has to offer, then relax aboard Caprice for the night and watch the sun go down from one of the great spots we can choose from to stay. Have a glass of wine while we cook tea and watch the wonder of the night life afloat. Awake to a new day of adventures aboard or disembark. 

Spend the night aboard the Caprice in either of our four private cabins (1 king double with ensuite, 1 king double, or a twin share cabin  and a very cozy double and single cabin) Please note that Caprice being a catamaran makes her very steady at anchor and we always find a good spot to sleep where there is little movement to upset anyone. With two showers aboard and plenty of hot water, you can start your day fresh.



2 Days, 1 Night: $1,400 for the whole boat maximum 8 persons (includes activities).

Food and drink BYO unless by prior arrangement. We also try and gather seafood each day to cook for you. Please note this is only a guide as to what we can do and we will customise any trip to your needs and budget.

Evening Wildlife Tour

Overnight Sail

Evening wild life tours are run over the summer months (November - March) and start from Deborah Bay near Port Chalmers at 6pm. The tour journeys to Taiaroa Heads, where we view the albatross breeding colony as well as the shag and seal colonies. A wide variety of wild life can be seen around the heads where currents bring food close to shore.

The tour is no longer than 3 hours and as dark approaches, the wild life comes alive either desperately feeding before night, or returning to shore from feeding at sea to roost. Most of this tour is in sheltered waters and we only enter open sea for a short time to look for our resident pods of Hector's Dolphins and other wild life.

Don't worry if you don't travel well on water, as being in open water for only a short time people tend not to get sick.


$80 per person with a minimum of 4 people for a sailing, or $600 for the whole boat with a maximum of 15 people.
