Explore Group Sailing Experience for Royal Couple

MARCH 18, 2014

Explore Group is excited to be involved in the official Royal New Zealand visit in April with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge set to experience an authentic match race on our ex- America's Cup yachts.


'It's a great opportunity to be a part of their visit and show them what New Zealand can offer, as well as the importance of sailing to us as a country' says Explore Group CEO Kit Nixon.

Explore last hosted Prince William in 2010, Mr Nixon continues 'we would like to think that we were able to show the Prince a great time back in 2010 which he would now like to share with his wife'.

It is set to be an exciting inclusion in their official itinerary with a match race hosted by Emirates Team New Zealand out on Auckland's beautiful harbour, pitting the Duke and Duchess against each other in an authentic America's Cup style match race.

Explore offers their authentic America's Cup Sailing Experiences to the public daily from Auckland's viaduct, as well as being available for exclusive charter.

Explore Group is a multi-award winning tourism operator with operations in Auckland and the Bay of Islands, as well as Sydney and Hamilton Island Australia.
