We set sail on a yatch around Auckland harbour before anchoring to enjoy a delicious 3 course dinner. Afterwards we sailed out of the harbour and under the Auckland Harbour Bridge and up stream. Having never been on a yatch before I found the whole experience magical. The views of the city from the water and the city lights was the icing on the cake. Do this cruise. You will not regret it.

I want everyone to experience the fun and beautiful sunset we had. We were so lucky that our captain really let us experience sailing in the harbor. Food was out of this world, and on our cruise the chef's came along so I was able to compliment them myself. Great excursion to do.

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.

The captain made this cruise even more enjoyable with his extreme knowledge of everything about the Harbour. His stories were great. Bits of trivia about the cup racing and training were very interesting. The meal was very good, I had the lamb shepard's pie. Gave everyone a chance to steer the ship.

Really great, love that it is a small group tour, only issue was the weather, which obviously is out of our control, still had a great time and got to steer the boat!

Had a wonderful time and loved it, perfect start to my 2.5 days of vacation time in Auckland. I was going alone and was a bit unsure whether that was going to be awkward or not and it was fine.. would be more fun eating with someone. But a great time sailing and interesting information about boats, harbor and sailing as well as Auckland!

Great trip. A gentle evening with little breeze. The sail was hoisted and we sailed quietly up the harbour. Coming back we had to use power though. Sailing at night was wonderful. Some of us even got to steer the yacht. That was an experience that was in itself worth the trip. The food was very good. I will do this again.
