Islands of the Hauraki Gulf, New Zealand / 60 Nm / 8-11 Dec 2023 / 4 Nights / Cat 3 Cruise
You can fly directly into Auckland on the 30th of November, 2023 or early on the 1st of December. Our crew will officially assemble at 10 a.m. on the 1st of December at The Viaduct Harbour in Auckland. We will aim to depart as soon as we complete the yacht familiarisation and safety training process and head for our first island anchorages. You are welcome to stay onboard on the night of the 30th, but if you plan to arrive prior to the 30th of November, you will need to arrange accommodation ashore.
Exploring the Hauraki Gulf
The goal is to take in the magic of the Hauraki Gulf, stopping at a handful of scenic bays, anchorages and islands en route while managing around the weather to ensure a comfortable and safe 4-day cruise. Some of the sights you will encounter include some of the most stunning maritime scenery in New Zealand. We’ll aim to be tied up back at the Viaduct Harbour by 3 p.m. on the 4th of December
