Hauraki Gulf Overnight Cruise
Embark on a memorable Hauraki Gulf Overnight Cruise around Auckland’s harbour and outlying islands while indulging in wine and tea, dining on top quality food, and soaking up the stunning views of the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park.
You will be on board the flagship vessel of Hauraki Blue Cruises, Ipipiri. Enjoy afternoon tea as your boat sets off from the Viaduct Harbour for the Hauraki Gulf. Listen as your skipper points out the highlights of Auckland’s marine environment and shares the region’s history. As you cruise farther out to the outlying islands, take in the famous landmarks of the ports of Auckland and Devonport, and keep your eyes peeled for the historic Bean Rock Lighthouse on your Hauraki Gulf Overnight Cruise from the spacious sundecks of the vessel.
Deeper into the park, watch the scenery unfold as the islands of Motuihe, Browns and Waiheke come into view. Put on your snorkel and jump into the clear waters, go for a paddle, or simply soak up the sun and the views from the comfortable lounges.
Your Hauraki Gulf Overnight Cruise boat moors in a protected spot overnight. Dine on high quality cuisine paired with New Zealand wine. Retire to the privacy of your cabin complete with ensuite amenities, and be lulled to sleep in the tranquility of safe harbor. Wake up refreshed to uninterrupted sea views courtesy of your ocean-view room.
With a good night’s sleep, jump into the inviting waters off the back of the ship, or tuck into an inviting spread of cooked and continental breakfast as the vessel motors back to port and cruises past the gorgeous views of Auckland’s eastern beaches.
