What You Can Expect

Auckland Harbour Sightseeing Cruise with Round-Trip Devonport Ferry Ticket

Auckland Harbour Cruise

Head to the Auckland Ferry Terminal to embark on your 1.5-hour sightseeing cruise, which takes you from Waitemata Harbour into the island-studded Hauraki Gulf. Hear about the Auckland area’s key landmarks from the crew as you pass by the Sky Tower, Auckland Harbour Bridge, Bean Rock Lighthouse and the Devonport Naval Base.

The boat makes a 10-minute stop (weather permitting) at Rangitoto Island, a 600-year-old volcanic island renowned for its jagged lava rock, lush vegetation and pristine coves. You’re served complimentary morning or afternoon tea before returning to Auckland.

During your stay, use your complimentary round-trip ferry ticket to the picturesque village of Devonport, located just 12 minutes from downtown Auckland. Stroll past the Victorian boutique–lined streets, enjoy views from Mt Victoria or North Head, or visit one of the many cafes or chocolatiers in the seaside town. Your ferry ticket is valid for one year.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2016

This was a lovely tour - very relaxing and afternoon tea was provided. We were also provided with 2 ferry tickets to Devonport and we spent the rest of the day exploring Devonport which was a pretty little village. The only negative was that the wharf where we needed to board was changed and no announcement, so it very confusing as there was no one around to ask where to go. We only found out through another couple who went to investigate and they came back to tell us. Once we finally got on the boat, it was enjoyable as we cruised around Auckland harbour and the commentary was very informative.

Very pleasant way to fill in a couple of hours in Auckland on the harbour before having to board our flight home.

Great afternoon cruising along the harbour with really good information on the city and its history. Great views, too. Got a chance to stop off at Rangitoto for about 15min. The Devonport ticket is not part of the main tour, which was good because you can do that trip at your leisure within 12mths. I went to Devonport that afternoon and it's just beautiful. I think this tour would be even better in Summer I went just at the end of Winter, so a bit cold. Definitely recommend to anyone with an afternoon to spare in Auckland.
