    Loved it! Food was good, sailing so nice. Staff very friendly. Just the right number of people on the boat.

    No vacation to Auckland is complete without an adventure out on the water. This trip not includes a stunning sunset cruise, but a custom three course meal that was also excellent. Friendly crew, great views, good food, and drinks. You can even have a go at helming the ship, which for me, was one of the highlights of the trip.

    Great food, staff, and weather. Did seem a bit expensive, considering we ate on deck and not in a more formal setting.

    We set sail on a yatch around Auckland harbour before anchoring to enjoy a delicious 3 course dinner.
    Afterwards we sailed out of the harbour and under the Auckland Harbour Bridge and up stream. Having never been on a yatch before I found the whole experience magical. The views of the city from the water and the city lights was the icing on the cake. Do this cruise. You will not regret it.

    I ENJOYED THIS CRUISE VERY MUCH. THE STAFF WERE WONDERFUL, VERY HELPFUL. THE FOOD WAS GOOD. IT WAS THE FIRST TIME I HAD BEEN OUT IN A BOAT THIS SIZE AND I ENJOYED IT VERY MUCH. I WOULD RECOMEND THIS TRIP TO EVERYBODY

    I want everyone to experience the fun and beautiful sunset we had. We were so lucky that our captain really let us experience sailing in the harbor. Food was out of this world, and on our cruise the chef's came along so I was able to compliment them myself. Great excursion to do.

    This tour is probably best for folks who are not overly familiar with sailing vessels and are looking for something a bit different. Our guides were Jess and Quinton, who managed the sailing of the boat while providing bar services, being our waiters and providing running commentary on the sights around the harbour and general conversation on any other topic that came up. There were 10 of us on board, so these guys were quite busy at times! We had chosen a lamb pot pie as our main course for dinner, which was very tasty. These are preselected and preprepared meals brought on board just prior to the start of the cruise though, so dont expect a fancy sit down dinner! Our group also chose to have dinner outside on deck at the back of the sailboat rather than sit inside the hull. This provided a much more scenic and relaxed atmosphere. One complementary drink was provide from a limited selection of wines and beers. For our particular cruise, they had not brought along a cash box, so we enjoyed a number of refills on our drinks at no charge! Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed this outing, and recommend it highly!

    It is on a sailboat. The food was marvelous. The main courses including the salmon and the lamb were outstanding! My husband, an avid sailor was allowed to steer the boat and he was in heaven. The sailing portion was about 15 miles and one hour and we were able to see the lights come on in the city

    Dinner was good and the sail was pleasant
