Great trip. A gentle evening with little breeze. The sail was hoisted and we sailed quietly up the harbour. Coming back we had to use power though. Sailing at night was wonderful. Some of us even got to steer the yacht. That was an experience that was in itself worth the trip. The food was very good. I will do this again.

Great 2 and one half hour tour of Auckland harbor aboard smaller sailing ship. Crew of three was very attentive and served an enjoyable meal.
Lovely evening on the water. Friendly fun crew and the food was excellent. Everyone had an opportunity of taking the wheel. Would highly recommend the experience to all.
We had the best day / evening with theses guys. Fantastic sailing, lots of laughs, the crew were terrific. Recommend it 10/10
We rode on the Courageous with our captain, Charlie, and his mate, Rae. The weather was iffy, so we ate first while docked. The food was provided by the tour company and was excellent. We were able to sail for an hour or two afterwards and my husband and I were able to take the wheel under Charlie's supervision. It was a great tour and the weather ended up in our favor.
Great experience and reasonable value for money - Captain Tom was easy going and informative - good sense of humour!! The meal was lovely and inspite of a mixup with the menu choices they did their best to accomodate our fussy 4 (vege and no fish options needed!) Once we cruised into the harbour it was delightful to have to engine cut and the sails hoisted. All round an unforgettable evening.
Small group on boat I recommend this tour food delicious crew were great and then after dinner they unfurled the sails and we were off and sailing we were all able to steer the boat and take photos of us behind the wheel
Loved this trip. Well worth the money. Good sail beautiful weather. Good food and crew were lovely. John Myra from Scotland x
I wish the contact between you and the company had been easier. We tried to contact them to re-confirm as you instructed but they were closed. We were then traveling and not reachable so we were not able to select our meals although they did a great job of making it work.
Lots of fun. Lovely meal and friendly, welcoming crew. What a fantastic experience to take the helm and steer the yacht once the sails were up! Very Titanic "king of the world" moment!
Great night, thoroughly enjoyed it, Tour leaders marvellous. Thanks so much
A magical night to remember. Our two hosts for the evening were great -so fun and entertaining and so helpful and sweet The dinner and dessert was absolutely mouth-wateringly delicious and the intimate setting provided inside the cabin allowed for easy conversation and for getting to spend quality time with both our hosts and our fellow guests, who were a wonderful group of people. Our actual tour of the harbor was fun and enjoyable, with our hosts making sure we got the best view of some beautiful parts of the harbour and allowing us to take turns steering the ship. A really great experience and our two hosts deserve much of the credit for making this one of the absolute highlights of my Auckland tour and a night to remember with great fondness
Weather of that day was perfect and the view of the city was beautiful. Had a very nice experience with my family.
I would recommend this adventure to anyone. Noel (the skipper) and Alan where very informative and really very friendly. The dinner was great and getting to steer the boat was a really fun experience not only for those doing the steering but for the rest off us who weren't game to have a go. If you are in Auckland looking for dinner and an exiting experience all wrapped up in one give it a go.
Wonderful harbour cruise. The food was delicious and the staff were great. Would recommend this to anyone.
Great trip fantastic skipper Mikie was also a good help in preparing the delicious 3 course meal. A wonderful introduction to Auckland good value and fun sailing in a crisp and breezy full moon night !!!
A very fun harbour cruise! The boat was smaller than other dinner cruises we've been on in the past (we only had about 8 other people with us), but the small sailboat ended up making the whole experience much more intimate. The food was okay (good, but nothing exceptional), the crew however was a blast and really made the experience memorable. They let everyone on the boat take turns driving, plus the views of the Auckland skyline were beautiful. Would definitely recommend!
Highly recommend! Great food, great service an amazing experience. Thanks to the world class crew.
While the food provided was very good, sailing down Auckland Harbour was amazing. We all were able to take a turn at the helm and I actually was able to steer the boat thru a 180 degree change of course. Definitely highly recommended.
