Cruise the sparkling waters of Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour for one and a half hours. You’ll learn about some of the most well-known city landmarks. And a brief stopover on dormant volcano Rangitoto — a feature of the view from just about any Auckland vantage point looking over the harbour — is a highlight of the tour.
See another side to the ‘City of Sails’ as you take in spectacular views of the Harbour Bridge, the city skyline, Devonport’s historic naval base and Bean Rock Lighthouse And enjoy the view with a hot drink and sandwich in hand, as the boat's crew will serve refreshments.
The cruise departs from Downtown Ferry Terminal, at the bottom of Queen's Street in Auckland's CBD, at 10:30am and 1:30pm daily.
Those wanting to learn about Auckland, and those interested exploring the city’s landmarks from the water.
There are over 20 islands in the Hauraki Gulf, and most were formed by volcanic activity — Rangitoto is the newest volcano in the Auckland region and last erupted 550 years ago.
