What You Can Expect

Auckland Harbour Coffee Cruise

Auckland Harbour Coffee Cruise

Set sail from Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour on a cruising yacht for an afternoon on the water. Your captain welcomes you aboard and the crew supplies windproof and waterproof jackets, depending on weather conditions. 

After a brief introduction accompanied by a safety briefing, you’ll depart Viaduct for a 1.5-hour sightseeing tour that includes interesting commentary on Auckland, home of the Americas Cup. 

Once you have enjoyed afternoon tea — including coffee, tea or hot chocolate and a sweet treat — in the sunshine or below deck, the crew sets the sails to cruise Auckland's sparkling Waitemata Harbour. You have the option of helping the crew sail the vessel or simply sit back and relax as you take advantage of photo ops.

Glide past the Auckland Bridge, Westhaven Marina, the charming suburb of Devonport and the city skyline before returning to the starting point.

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.

It was a lovely, sunny day and we were served with chocolate muffins and either tea or coffee. Everyone on board was encouraged to take the wheel and steer the vessel - awesome!
