What You Can Expect

Auckland Harbour Dinner Cruise

Auckland Harbour Dinner Cruise

Your dinner cruise begins at Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour, where an expert captain welcomes you aboard the 50-foot (15-meter) sailing yacht. After a safety briefing, you’ll set sail across the waters of Waitemata Harbour, gliding past waterfront highlights including Auckland Harbour Bridge, the Ferry Building and the iconic Sky Tower — New Zealand’s tallest building.
Your captain points out the sights that you pass, such as the volcanic cone of Mt Eden, which hovers on the outskirts of the city. Hear live commentary about the national pastime of sailing, including the hosting of the America’s Cup. If you’d like, you can assist the crew to hoist the sails or try your hand at steering the boat. Or simply enjoy the breeze and relax with a drink, purchased from the sailboat’s bar.
When your boat sets anchor in Westhaven Marina, take a seat in the dining room for a 3-course dinner served below deck. Afterward, savor the city views as Auckland illuminates in the evening light of dusk.
After a 2.5-hour cruise, your tour ends back at Viaduct Harbour.

It is on a sailboat. The food was marvelous. The main courses including the salmon and the lamb were outstanding! My husband, an avid sailor was allowed to steer the boat and he was in heaven. The sailing portion was about 15 miles and one hour and we were able to see the lights come on in the city

Boat captain was excellent. After motoring around the harbor, seeing the sights and having our dinner, he took the boat to a location where we could have a long sail back to the dock after dinner. We enjoyed the setting sun and city views as we sailed along for what seemed like an hour. Fantastic experience.

What a nice way to wind your day down. Sailing on the water, while being served dinner watching the sun set. Only wish we could have stayed out on the water longer. Highly recommend.

One of our favorite things we did in Auckland. The boat held about 10 of us and we sailed around the Harbor while we were served appetizers and drinks. It was a little cool, so we chose to be served dinner in the cabin, which was very nice and the food was delicious. Afterwards, we went back up, and were served hot chocolate. Our captain was very friendly- he let any of us who wanted to drive the boat for a bit. Even though the sunset was not so good because of the weather, the lights of Auckland coming back into the harbor were beautiful.
