Kerikeri High School has built a strong national reputation in sailing having won the New Zealand Secondary Schools' Team Racing title eight times and then represented New Zealand in the annual Interdominion Championships Regatta against the best Australian school. Several past pupils have represented New Zealand at the Olympics, participated in The Round the World Ocean Race and The Americas Cup, and won World Team Racing titles.

There is an open water scuba course and test available to students in Terms 1 and 2 as part of the Year 13 Physical Education course. This leads to the CMAS Open Water 1 qualification.
