What You Can Expect

Auckland Harbour and Hauraki Gulf Overnight Cruise

Double cabin

Take in maritime views of Waitemata Harbour and the Hauraki Gulf as your well-equipped luxury yacht glides through the scenic waters around Auckland on an overnight cruise. The modern 146-foot (44.5-meter) catamaran features 30 private cabins with ensuite bathrooms, plus an expansive sundeck and onboard bar serving New Zealand wines and other beverages. Your cruise includes afternoon tea, dinner and full breakfast served in the restaurant. 

Departing Viaduct Harbour in the afternoon, your captain welcomes you aboard and introduces you to Waitemata Harbour highlights including the Auckland Harbour Bridge, Bean Rock Lighthouse and the coastal suburb of Devonport.

Refresh with an assortment of fresh-baked goods, tea and coffee during afternoon teatime. 

Your captain details the distinct natural and historical features of key Hauraki Gulf islands. Learn of Rangitoto Island and neighboring Motutapu Island, then motor past Motuihe and Browns islands. Marvel at the forested and vineyard-clad landscapes and golden shores of Waiheke Island from the water.

Your vessel moors in a sheltered cove, where you can try snorkeling or kayaking (equipment provided), or simply soak up 360-degree views from the sundeck. In the evening, dine on fresh seasonal dishes featuring local produce, then socialize with an after-dinner drink at the bar (own expense) or head to the privacy of your stateroom with comfortable twin or king beds and large picture windows.

In the morning, enjoy a full breakfast with hot and cold options as your boat returns to Auckland. The city skyline greets you on arrival at Viaduct Harbour where your overnight cruise ends.

We loved our time aboard the cruise. The weather wasn't great and restricted what we could do but cruise delivered what was promised. My only comment is that I would loved to have gone a bit further out.Lyn

Great trip, fabulous staff, delicious, well prepared food. The cabins were spacious, spotlessly clean and seemed to be brand new. The overall feel of the vessel was of comfort with well appointed public areas. The scenery was spectacular! Great value for money.

Very nice relaxing tour. Large boat with excellent rooms, highly engaging staff and cuisine that was above expectations. Well worth the money and a good respite between more active tours or if you just want to relax and do nothing. Hardest part was waiting for crew to let us board!
