Your dinner cruise begins at Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour, where an expert captain welcomes you aboard the 50-foot (15-meter) sailing yacht. After a safety briefing, set sail across the waters of Waitemata Harbour, gliding past waterfront highlights including Auckland Harbour Bridge, the Ferry Building and the iconic Sky Tower—New Zealand’s tallest building.

Your captain points out the sights that you pass, such as the volcanic cone of Mt. Eden, which hovers on the outskirts of the city. Hear live commentary about the national pastime of sailing, including the hosting of the America’s Cup. If you’d like, you can assist the crew to hoist the sails or try your hand at steering the boat. Or simply enjoy the breeze and relax with a drink, purchased from the sailboat’s bar.

When your boat sets anchor in Westhaven Marina, take a seat in the dining room for a 3-course dinner served below deck. Afterward, savor the city views as Auckland illuminates in the evening light of dusk.

After your cruise, your tour ends back at Viaduct Harbour.

Disappointed
Dinu_S

Crew was friendly. The view was amazing but the food was terrible. The beef we got was so chewy couldn’t eat one of us got a bloody meat too . The tuna salad bowl was so cold. No one finished their meal. Entrees was good and dessert was okay. The sailing cruise was so small for the number of people. They also said it’s not there usual sailing cruise in that case they should reduce the price. For 145$ it’s not worth it. Really disappointed.

An 81st birthday treat for my husband. This was a wonderful experience which was more than we’d expected. The expert handling of the boat allowed us to enjoy an exhilarating sail!! Tacking on the return to harbour was superb—exciting and great fun. I’m not a keen water person and was not sure how I’d react to this. I loved it !! Canapes were delicious but it was barely a “dining experience “. That said it was a tasty bowl and dessert. Thanks to the lovely guys who looked after us— Jesse and Pippa. We would recommend this trip.

A Wild Ride in High Winds
Nichola_T
, Dec 2021
The food and company were great. We had strong winds once we got out of the harbour, and as it was our first time sailing, I was convinced that we were about to capsize. We sailed at a sharp angle on the return trip, with the occasional slap of an icy wave in the face. I couldn’t decide if I was exhilarated or almost dying from fright. One thing is certain: we will never forget the experience.

Wonderful experience. Great company, lovely gentle sailing with an experienced confident skipper. I booked the dinner cruise for my husbands birthday. We headed out with 2 other couples celebrating an anniversary and another birthday. It was lovely to see the lights and enjoy the sights of Auckland and the food was great.

We thoroughly every aspect of the cruise. From the minute you step on board you're made very welcome. Captain very knowledgeable and had a sense of fun as did the crew. Food was also very good. The sunset was fabulous and the view of the city from out at sea was stunning. A must do experience

This was a great cruise and wonderful way to see the harbor area. The hospitality and efficiency of the crew was excellent. The captain had great information shared in an entertaining fashion. It was a very relaxed atmosphere. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food! A great excursion I highly recommend.

Fun, unique experience
Jacob_A

This is a unique dinner cruise experience, but not a gourmet dining experience. You will spend most of your time huddled next to your fellow passengers. The crew has the service in tight quarters set up down pretty well, and the food is designed to be eaten on your lap. Everything comes in a bowl, and it was pretty good. We enjoyed the crew and the sailing experience, but it was not quite what we had expected.

The food (and wine) was all very good. The cruise itself was very relaxing, and the sunset was gorgeous. Overall, was a great choice to give us a break from all the walking we'd been doing.
