A voyage on the Spirit of New Zealand will empower you to become whoever you want to be.

It is a positive and pivotal experience in the lives of the young people who get the chance. Our youth development programme offers many highly engaged days in an environment uninterrupted by technology and the distractions of home and school life. Each young person gets the chance to unleash and discover their real potential.


10 DAY DEVELOPMENT VOYAGE For 16-19 year-olds – A 10 Day Voyage on board Spirit of New Zealand is a life-changing experience – unlocking your potential, leaving you ready to face your future!

5-DAY DISCOVERY VOYAGE FOR 14 – 16 YEAR OLD STUDENTS. This is the perfect opportunity to jump on Spirit of New Zealand with some of your classmates and discover adventure, challenge and a healthy bit of competition all in the salty sea air in Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf.


Similar to what used to be called our ‘Trophy’ voyage in the past, this new ‘Discovery Voyage’ is for 5 Days on board our tall ship for a group of 5 or 10 students from a school (40 young people on board in total). Keep an eye out in the notices for upcoming voyages in 2025!
