There were six passengers on our 3.15 sailing, which worked perfectly. The very professional crew made us feel at ease, which is very helpful when the boat does its first severe tip. One of our group took the wheel for more than three quarters of the trip, and loved the chance to handle a real sailing boat under watchful supervision.... More

Brilliant afternoon sailing on the former americas cup boats... great to experience the power and speed of these big boats... great trip weather you are an avid sailor or absolute novice. The crew do all the technical work and take excellent care of you. Great way to see the city and stunning harbour views... Highly recommended...

At a little after 3:00 we met our captain and guide, James, who led our group to the sailboat, Courageous. Our fairly small group got a safety drill, then we were offered a hot drink (or water) and cookies. It was a warm, very sunny day and we were also offered sunscreen--we were grateful since we had forgotten ours. James... More

One comment I would like to make on this trip is that apart from my wife and I there were 3 other people (elderly... More

Very informative harbour cruise on this sailboat. Captain knows all about history, cup racing challenges, and anything else you could think of to ask him. Loved it.

Our all-women crew made this a delightful experience! Starting with hot chocolate and cookies, they made us feel comfortable. They were efficient, entertaining and very informative. In spite of the fussy Auckland weather, we always felt we were in safe hands. It was good fun spotting the super yachts and sailing under the Auckland Harbour Bridge! Raincoats are provided on...

We enjoyed the cruise around the harbour with a light wind making it a very pleasant time on the water. My wife tried steering the boat (which was called Courageous) as well as assisting in raising the mail sail. Alas, no dolphins were sighted.The crew were very friendly and happy to answer our questions.
