they did not go because it was too Windy. For crying our loud it is an America's Cup Sailboat that works with the wind. It cannot be too windy for this boat.
great trip out on the harbour !!!
Fantastic! Great sailing - we all actually helped on deck and got to take a turn at the wheel. If you like sailing, you will not be disappointed. You will be on a HIGH just thinking back on the experience.
outstanding experience great staff no hustling for tips
If you want to give your shoulders and rump a good workout, volunteer to be a grinder work the sail winches. The match racing is a lot of funcaptain was great, scenery was amazing, and it's a thrill to race fast and hard, especially when you win!
The opportunity to participate as crew member and learn some basics of sailing was rewarding. The crew was knowledge, entertaining and courtesy. Highly recommended!
Missed the wind by a day, but enjoyed the time on the water and seeing the city from a different vantage point. The company did give us vouchers for a return trip that don't expire, a nice touch.
We had a fantastic sail - the staff were great and made us feel very safe, but at the same time my sailboat-loving husband had a thrilling ride with great speed and views of the harbor. And anyone who wanted got a turn at the helm!
My husband and I had the greatest time. The weather was perfect. The crew were very enthusiastic and attentive, and made sure we all participated in the cruise. We were lucky enough to have only a few people on board so got to experience actually sailing the boat! Would do it again for sure! Quote from my husband friggin awesome experience...loved it.
Great way to spend our first afternoon in NZ. Weather was perfect which helped!! Our crew Ali and Alex were friendly and shared interesting info about the harbour and surrounding areas. Everyone had the opportunity of hoisting sails and driving the boat, Very highly recommended.
Doing what: Auckland Harbour Coffee Cruise
This was a great trip. We had great views of the Auckland shore, skyline.and surrounding islands from out on the water. The staff crew were professional, friendly, and fun. They encouraged passengers to be part of the team no experience necessary. Interested passengers were allowed to take one of the two wheels. Above all, it was a real thrill to be on the open water in a racing boat at full sail including a massive jinnaker. A memorable day. Don't miss the exhibit on America's Cup Racing at the adjacent Auckland Maritime Museum- admission included as of this writing.
We enjoyed the America's Cup Sailing experience. We have this type of ocean racing sailing in our family with our son and have a good background about what it is and what to expect. We felt that due to the good crew and their eagerness to perform combined with a good day with adequate winds they did provide us with a full range of the thrill of ocean racing including sailing down wind under the amazing spinnaker. It was a happy time for us as it seemed to most of those fortunate to be on this cruise. They provided great and a wide variety of harbor views with commentary including going under the harbor bridge with our mast almost hitting the structure. Well done and highly recommended!
