Oceans of Hope Challenge NZ – 2022

Are you ready for a life changing sailing adventure?


Oceans of Hope’s aim is to help you gain self-confidence and a renewed sense of empowerment.

The camaraderie of sailing a boat with people who have similar experiences creates an environment where people can comfortably share their hopes and fears. The Oceans of Hope experience is a catalyst for creating lasting friendships and a sense of community.

There will be crew to help you learn and ensure you get everything you want from this experience. These fabulous boats are easy and safe to sail so you can learn to sail or learn new sailing skills. If you come alone, you will certainly have some fun and make life-long friends.

Whether you have sailed before or not, this is an opportunity not to be missed!

EMBARKING: 28th November 2022 @ 09.00 Auckland Viaduct Marina.
DISEMBARKING: 2nd December 2022 @ 16.00 Opua Wharf, Beechy Street, Opua.
COST: $1, 454 (includes food)

To our friends who live in Australia: we remain hopeful that the travel bubble between Australia and New Zealand will be open again soon and with this in mind, we have considered the fairest way of managing your expectations. If you are from Australia, please apply! We will keep your details on record and when we get a confident all clear that the travel bubble will remain open, we will try our best to accommodate as many of you as possible. We do understand that this is not the most satisfactory solution, but it’s our only option at the moment.
