Description

Experience a unique one night cruise around Auckland’s harbour and outlying islands with Hauraki Blue Cruises. Step on board the cruise ship Ipipiri and set off from Viaduct Harbour, through the sparkling waters of the Waitemata Harbour and out into the Hauraki Gulf. Your skipper will point out key Auckland harbour landmarks including the Hauraki Gulf islands, each with its own fascinating history.

Enjoy the relaxed environment on board your Hauraki Blue cruise, and choose to do as much or as little as you like. Try kayaking or snorkelling in the clear Pacific Ocean waters before relaxing with a refreshing drink on the top deck as the sun sets.

Your experienced crew will find a sheltered cove to moor in overnight. Dine on fresh local produce complemented by New Zealand wines and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, before retiring to your ocean view cabin for the night.

We had an amazing time! our overnight cruise was on a weekday which is probably why the cruise had only 8 guests! all the staff members were very friendly and professional - they attempted to interact with all the guests and made the cruise more enjoyable. We visited rangitoto .

Cruise offered beautiful views, good food & friendly crew (well some of them). Would be nice if the cruise started in the morning so there would be more time for activities & visit more islands. Room was clean & comfy and felt like it was in a fancy hotel with an ocean view. And we were lucky that the moon was beautiful during the night we spent on the cruise, made the trip more amazing!.

Had a really nice time :) ship and harbour were beautiful, very friendly staff. Activities were okay, as we didn't get to do snorkeling or nature walk. Dinner was nice, but there was only one vegetarian option. Not a lot to do in the evening, which was disappointing for a one night cruise, so was in bed by 9... Overall it was very nice. 7/10.

KEITH SHAW

An overnight cruise that left everyone on board wanting more.(that was the comment we heard most from our fellow cruisers.) equal to any of the four overseas cruisers (of longer duration) we have previously experienced. Crew were delightful and more than helpful . Food was plentiful, presented well and cooked to perfection. Ship was immaculate. Rooms superior. Wish they would add a friday to sunday cruise as well and if they do we'll be back. Fully recommend this cruise and included excursions for a short sharp pick me up and get away. Than you guys for a lovely memorable 40th wedding anniversary and for the prompt assistance and reimbursements of our mix up with the car parking venue. Cheers to you all.
