Your Options for Enjoying Effortless Luxury

Day Cruises

Day cruises are the perfect introduction to the delights of the Hauraki Gulf. You can choose to while away the time simply soaking up the luxury on board, or in more active pursuits including fishing, swimming, snorkelling, paddle boarding, or kayaking in our crystal clear waters.

You might also like to visit a secluded beach to play cricket, volleyball or petanque. Naturally, all this will give you an appetite, which will be satisfied by a sumptuous buffet lunch or dinner on board, accompanied by a selection of fine New Zealand wines and other beverages.

Business On Board

Cruise New Zealand specialises in exceeding the expectations of the most discerning corporate clients, and a day with us is a fabulous way to engage prospective clients or build profitable relationships. Host an incentive program, meeting, product launch or team building exercise on board one of our superb vessels, either cruising the harbour or anchored in a secluded bay.

It’s amazing what can be achieved in such a uniquely relaxed environment.

Overnight & Extended Cruises

People who’ve experienced a single day on the water frequently return to Cruise New Zealand for longer charters to other destinations such as the Mercury Islands, Great Barrier or the magnificent Bay of Islands.

Your very own luxury charter yacht creates a haven and offers you the opportunity to explore some of the most isolated and pristine coastal hideaways that New Zealand has to offer.

Visits to spectacularly located golf courses, wineries and restaurants along with a range of adventure activities can easily be arranged.
