At a little after 3:00 we met our captain and guide, James, who led our group to the sailboat, Courageous. Our fairly small group got a safety drill, then we were offered a hot drink (or water) and cookies. It was a warm, very sunny day and we were also offered sunscreen--we were grateful since we had forgotten ours. James... More

One comment I would like to make on this trip is that apart from my wife and I there were 3 other people (elderly... More

Very informative harbour cruise on this sailboat. Captain knows all about history, cup racing challenges, and anything else you could think of to ask him. Loved it.

Our all-women crew made this a delightful experience! Starting with hot chocolate and cookies, they made us feel comfortable. They were efficient, entertaining and very informative. In spite of the fussy Auckland weather, we always felt we were in safe hands. It was good fun spotting the super yachts and sailing under the Auckland Harbour Bridge! Raincoats are provided on...

We enjoyed the cruise around the harbour with a light wind making it a very pleasant time on the water. My wife tried steering the boat (which was called Courageous) as well as assisting in raising the mail sail. Alas, no dolphins were sighted.The crew were very friendly and happy to answer our questions.

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
