My Husband and I, thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. We were running late due to an accident on the motorway and the explore team were so accommodating and understanding.

The food (especially the chicken dish) was delicious! the atmosphere and sailboat cruise itself was also faultless.

only thing we would recommend is to perhaps have some soft music playing in the background, but other than that, it was a beautiful experience.

We live in Auckland and due to the current event across the globe we are enjoying more of what our own city has to offer. We booked the sunset dinner cruise as a fun outing for us and our 6 year old son. We all enjoyed it immensely, the crew especially the skipper were fantastic and ensured everyone on board had a great time. Would recommend this cruise for anyone living in Auckland or visiting. Will definitely try out their other cruises on offer. Thanks for a great evening!

To celebrate a birthday, we took the dinner cruise and were very happy. Although the weather was not perfect we experienced a nice combination of motoring and sailing on Auckland's harbour. The dinner was very good, and we could eat 'downstairs' or up on deck as we chose. Two points to note - we hadn't brought warm jackets as the website said windproof and rainproof jackets were available. In the event, we were told they were very bulky and would be not easy to wear while eating the meal so no one borrowed them. Also the website said we would tie up in Westhaven Marina to eat, but not so, we ate while sailing. That was no problem, just not expected. All in all a pleasant experience.

Auckland Harbor, sailboat, great crew and perfect weather = Great experience. The twin sailboat sunset dinner cruise was our excursion of choice. Windy evening made for great sailing. About 10 guests on board. Food and drink was OK. The time on the harbor was awesome.

We only had a day and a half in Auckland and chose to do this dinner cruise on the first night. The weather was perfect, the food was delicious (we had the smoked fish), sunset was beautiful and the crew of the boat were delightful. My husband manned the wheel for a bit - at the very least it made for a great photo op!
We enjoyed our sail immensely and highly recommend!

Beautiful boat, seasoned Captain, and very friendly staff serving drinks/dinner.

The tour captures the harbor and sunset....and it is a small group which leaves plenty of room to move about. However, dinner was a little disappointing.

Recommend you take this tour. Great people and very smart about how they serve the food on the moving boat. The tour was fun and the food was great. If you wanted to they let you steer the boat.
