Meet your captain at the Auckland waterfront and be welcomed by the crew, who will supply you with weather-proof jackets if required.

A great tour, the weather also played along and gave us a bright blue sky and sunshine :) From the boat you have a wonderful view of the Auckland skyline. We were only a small group and were able to move freely on the boat. There was chilled water and sunscreen on board. Our two guides were very friendly.
