Hauraki Gulf Reviews & Ratings
Wonderful place for boating, swimming, snorkeling and fishing. We were there in February and the water was so clear and warm, so those of you who dont like cold water, its a pleasure to dive off your boat and just enjoy a swim. Just one caution, there are rays around so exercise caution when swimming😊
Simply the best sailing in the world... No exaggeration.
Great place to holiday. Lots to see and do. If you have you own boat there is lots of amazing places to see and explore. Good ferry services run from Auckland to access most places on regular time tables.
The Hauraki Gulf is a jewel in the New Zealand crown. From fishing, sight seeing, whale and dolphin watching to all manner of water sports. Deserted islands and beautiful white sand beaches.
Great fishing a few minutes from the Auckland CBD. Excellent scenery
