A nice evening

The sailing cruise was very pleasant. The food was good, and it was enjoyable to have the opportunity to steer (however poorly) the boat!

lovely dinner and wine sailing gently around the harbour drooling over super expensive boats. Then an amazing time sailing at full whack with the sun setting and a beautiful backdrop of auckland. Absolutely loved it, can totally recommend this with no reservations whatsoever. Fabulous trip, thank you so much for a great start to our nz adventure.

Was apprehensive booking this dinner cruise as not all reviews on trip advisor were good BUT it was amazing. Plenty of food, canapés served on deck with complimentary glass of bubbles, then we moored and had mains and dessert in the cabin. Crew were just outstanding. On the way back we were allowed to steer the boat. It was cold... More

Highly recommended if you are keen on personalised service and just want to enjoy sailing, nice food and intimate company. Both Julia and Alex were our crew, and they were professional and very friendly. It was first timer for my aged parents to be sailing, and the crew made them at ease and were very patient at explaining everything to... More

Dinner entree and dessert was great and just wish it's more. However the main dish is a let down so we didn't finish it. Service was great and the crew was informative. Blankets was also provided.

We were lucky- the weather was exceptionally fine, allowing great views and meaning we could sit outside without worrying. We had the opportunity to steer a bit too. The captain and crew told us about various sights we were passing, which is always interesting. The food was fine- not fine dining (as its a boat) but it was substantial enough.... More

We had to cancel this at very short notice due to a bereavement in the UK. Jack Grant and his staff were efficient, professional - and kind. Unlike some similar organisations, I felt I was being looked after by real human beings. So have no hesitation in recommending them highly. Hope to enjoy one of their cruises at a future... More

We really enjoyed this. Went with a group of friends. Sailed around the harbour and had drinks, canapes then dinner and pudding as a picnic on knees on upper deck. Could have eaten indoors if weather had been poor. Crew attentive and competent. All encouraged to take turns steering and to chat to crew. Very friendly and informal. Nice evening

Dinner and cruise on this bad boy was fun, the crew were 1st class and the sailing around the harbour was just perfect. Highly recommended for a great day/night.

Wow! We had an excellent 2.5 hr sail - great crew, extraordinary scenery and a very good meal. Although apparently unusual we had dozens of Orca sightings, some within meters of the boat. If you are in Aukland and friendly to trying a sailing experience, do not miss this. NZ is a seafaring nation, and a sailing outing is a... More
