Experience a unique overnight cruise around Auckland’s harbour and outlying islands, dining on quality food and enjoying stunning views of the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park.
Step on board the Ipipiri, the flagship vessel of Hauraki Blue Cruises, and set off from the Viaduct Harbour, enjoying afternoon tea as your cruise begins. Your skipper will point out highlights of Auckland's marine environment including the ports of Auckland, Devonport and the Bean Rock Lighthouse, as well as the islands of the Hauraki Gulf.
Further out in the Gulf, discover Motuihe, Browns Island and the popular holiday destination of Waiheke Island as your cruise continues. Kayak or snorkel in pristine waters or simply relax and drink in the views from the sundeck.
Feel the tranquil atmosphere as the ship moors in a sheltered spot overnight, and dine on top quality local cuisine, surrounded by natural beauty. Enhance your meal with a New Zealand wine. Your home for the night is an ocean view cabin with full ensuite and uninterrupted sea views, offering privacy and relaxation.
After a peaceful night's sleep, refresh yourself with a morning swim off the back of the ship, or sit down to a full cooked and continental breakfast as we cruise back to port, taking in the sights of Auckland’s eastern beaches along the way.
