Hauraki Gulf, Auckland, New Zealand / 60NM / 4 Days / 4 Nights / Cat 3 Cruise

This 4-day cruise is the perfect chance to enjoy some of the magical islands of the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park. This relaxing retreat takes in islands, beaches, hikes, sea life, fishing and the stunning island jewels of the world famous – Hauraki Gulf.

Hauraki Gulf Marine Park

The Hauraki Gulf Marine Park covers an area of more than 1.2 million hectares. More than 50 islands are within the gulf, many of which are public conservation lands. The islands and beaches are simply stunning. The gulf has islands that are incredibly different in every sense, from wineries and cafes to the rugged wild beaches that face eastward across the Pacific toward the USA several thousands of miles away.

This expedition combines sailing, cruising, exploring, relaxing and discovering numerous unique places that very few people get to in their lifetimes.
