With 2,300 miles of coastline and a subtropical climate marked by warm, humid summers and mild winters, Auckland promises much scope for boating. The city is also one of the sunniest in New Zealand, giving boaters ample excuses to hit the waters. The location of Auckland is one of the most beautiful. Its urban area is surrounded by two harbors — the Waitemata Harbour to the north and the Manukau Harbor to the south. There is almost 13,000 miles of rivers and streams watering Auckland in total.
The beautiful islands in Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf surrounded by sparkling blue waters form the perfect spot to enjoy boating to the fullest. Depending upon your mood, you can either sit back and enjoy in one of the most luxurious dinner cruises or race an America’s Cup yacht; the options are aplenty. If you are looking for a short getaway for a few days, cruise to one of the islands that wait close by. If it is just the day that you want to enjoy, hop on your boat and explore the inner gulf of the city. There are a few ramps in the region including the Leigh, Omaha, Hobbs Bay, Sandspit, and more that make launching your boat easier.
Taking a jet boat ride is one of the most popular ways to explore Auckland. Amidst a few heart-stopping spins and turns you can experience the city’s majestic skyline, the awe-inspiring Rangitoto, Auckland’s island volcano, and watch the friendly dolphins. You can find jet boat tours at the Viaduct Harbour in Auckland.
Andy is a great communicator, we knew what was going on every step of the way. His boat is a great little boat for getting around, we had 4 people aboard this boat and to be honest, I wouldn't recommend having 4 people on this boat, this is no fault of Andys, it is just a smaller boat. Perfect for 2 people. We had a great day out on the water. The boat had everything you need. I would highly recommend dealing with Andy.
What a great experience! Skipper Bruce is a real professional - knows what he is doing, actively engaged our throughout - talking to us about the boat, teaching us a bit about sailing, and sharing about Auckland/NZ generally. The boat is great as well - interesting history, fully restored. 30+ knot winds sure helped, but we had a great time and highly recommend chartering with Bruce.
I highly recommended this skipper an his boat, the skipper is really experience and has a lot of knowledge, everyone had a awesome time an they had fun too
Very professional and friendly captain. Great knowledge of the area, hope to use his service again.
Great lease and very pleasant and communicative man who did everything to help us have good time j
Really easy to hire and pick up boat. Andy provided all relevant information. Highly recommended
