We booked the dinner cruise just by chance and aren't we glad. The views of the city from the water were amazing. The food was so good. The decent weather defiantly helped and the friendliness and welcoming of the crew, Noel, Alex and Nick. Defiantly recommend this, to anyone, its a good price as well.

Was impressed by how hands on this trip was, sailing boat moves quite fast. Would recommend it for the best views of the city. Lasts around 3 hours and depends on the weather and seating availability

What a great experience. We went with our 5 and 7 year old children. The crew are amazing. Not only do they "know the ropes" (correct use of metaphor!) but they are polite, friendly and firm in equal measure. You can have a go on the helm or not - no pressure either way. What you will get is an... More

It was an amazing afternoon sailing around the harbour! The views were amazing. We had a great crew, very experienced and we were given the opportunity to drive the boat! It was an extremely windy afternoon and you couldn't ask for a better crew, very experienced crew. Highly recommended !!! A must do when you're in Auckland

Lovely afternoon sailing around the harbour, at times almost stopping due to wind dropping! Tom and Ash were great crew allowing any passengers to take the wheel. Great day, good commentary and bonus watching bungy jumpers off the harbour bridge!

I booked this tour on Viator. It was a lovely cruise. The staff were fantastic. Brad was the main guy of the on board staff. He's so enthusiastic and fun. The cruise did not offer much in term of sailing but I think no one really care since everyone had such a good time. Anyway, if you have an afternoon... More

This was our last day in New Zealand and we wanted to do something enjoyable to remember. The harbour cruise was ideal, it was a lovely afternoon, the crew interacted with all the passengers, we each had a go at the helm and it was an opportunity to see Auckland at its best.
