Such a good weekend. Went with a group of mates who all had a great time. The highlight was two gorgeous babes cooking us breakfast after the night out!! Definitely a must do!
There is nothing we love more than a chance to get out on the open waters, except perhaps to do so on a luxury yacht with a drink in hand. Here to satisfy that specific urge is Wicked Bucks’ Yacht Tour through Wanaka. Now you might think that it’s pretty evident from the name what this experience involves, but we’re always full of surprises. You’ll just have to hop on board and experience the magic for yourself.
There is something so OTT about spending a day on a yacht. Maybe it’s because we’ve grown up watching A-List celebrities sprawl themselves across yacht decks while they bathe in the Mediterranean sun, maybe it’s the price tag attached to these luxe rides, or maybe it’s just because we’re comparing them to our tinny back home. Whatever it is, these water vessels are well worth the hype. Climb on board the Wicked Bucks yacht, and you’ll be welcomed by a white oasis with lush seating and huge sails.
The fit-out may be simple, but it’s far from lacking. Think rustic sailing experience to a desert island with a modern-day spin. There is a stereo with aux, Bluetooth and USB capabilities so that you can drop the base and listen to all your favourite tunes along the way without worrying about any noise complaints. There is an ice box for your BYO bevvies, a 2-burner cooker to help satisfy your mid-afternoon cravings and all the necessary safety and navigation equipment on board. The boat is small enough to moor close to the beach, and the large cockpit area is ideal for soaking in your daily dose of Vitamin D.
As for the entertainment, your hands will be pretty tied up learning the ropes of sailing and helping to steer the boat across the water. And, of course, you can’t really beat the views back across Wanaka too.
