Recharge: Sail Away with Me

Priced from $1109.50

Recharge: Sailing away with me


This package combined the elegance of a historic hotel with the elegance of sailing (or, the inelegance of learning to sail!) in the Bay of Islands.

You will check in to your first night of two at The Duke of Marlborough, 

The next day you’re sailing. The two-day Spring Sailing course gives you an excellent introduction to the sport (no prior experience necessary). Casting off from the dock at 9.30am, you’ll be sailing the beautiful Bay of Islands with your instructor during the day and safely tied up to the dock or on a mooring out in the islands for your night aboard.

You’ll be back on land at 5pm the next day: you’ll certainly appreciate your bed at the Duke, but you’ll be treasuring the adventure, the memories and your newfound sailing skills for years to come.


Package includes:

Two nights for two at The Duke of Marlborough
Two day Spring Sailing course with Great Escapes Yacht Charters

Vaild til the 15th December 2020 and not valid on Labour Weekend and subject to availability


What our customers say

I would just like to start by thanking Ida, and all the wonderful staff at the Duke of Marlborough in Russell for helping to bring our dream wedding day to life. Ida has been a huge help towards the organisation of everything; her communication was great and nothing was ever a problem. We communicated a lot via email and she was always super prompt at getting back to all of my questions. On the wedding day the Ellie and the Duke staff were super friendly and helpful, and again nothing was a problem. Ellie and the staff at the Duke set up the reception room beautifully and it was exactly how I had been picturing it. All our guests commented on how beautiful the room looked on the night. The staff were super organised, having it all set up the morning of, and then had everything packed down that night (the bride and groom didn’t need to lift a finger). Having one less stress of setting up and packing down on the day is amazing!! The food! Absolutely everyone who attended our wedding just loved the food. It was all cooked and presented perfectly. Having the full table service meant people were able to sit and chat and enjoy their time together. The amount of lovely comments we got regarding the food was incredible. My husband and I would totally recommend the Duke of Marlborough to anyone who is thinking about planning a wedding. The setting is outstanding, the weather we had was perfect, and the whole day was honestly faultless. It was such a stress free day thanks to all the helpful staff at the Duke, and we cannot thank them enough! The Duke of Marlborough is defiantly the place to get married- 10/10 for the whole experience! Thanks again, Mr & Mrs Egli xxxx
