What people are saying about Waitemata Harbour

A great way to see all of Auckland and the Waitemata Harbour.

An awesome experience that combines great views, great commentary and a friendly, witty and knowledgeable staff. Tourists and Aucklanders alike can really enjoy this experience, as you get a great view of the city, Waitemata and Hauraki Islands from a perspective you wouldn’t get any other way. Our pilot shared a breadth of knowledge on the geography and history of the region, and did so with a healthy dose of humour. If you want see Auckland then I highly recommend this experience.

We were thrilled with our time out on the water.

Couldn't have wanted anything better. The wind came up in perfect time so we were able to enjoy the thrill of actually sailing this beautiful yacht.

Very Professional Excursion, Would Highly Recommend

Unfortunately we didn't get to see any whales on the day that we went out, they simply weren't making themselves available. However, we did see hundreds of dolphins. Seeing dolphins out in their natural habitat is just incredible, it took a bit of time to find them on the day that we were out, but it was well worth the wait. The captain of the boat could not have worked harder to find them out in the open ocean, the whole trip was very professional from start to finish. I would definitely go out again in the hope of finding whales next time.

Great experience for me and my 12 year old son.

Really enjoyed this experience, a good walk! Learnt about bridge construction too. Great views across the harbour and the city.

Historical and interesting tour of Auckland

Paul was a great tour guide and even though it was a very wet day in Auckland, he found us stuff to do. His knowledge of the history of New Zealand was excellent and he was easy to listen to and answered all of our questions... I would do this tour again.
