What to expect
  • While your cruise ship is docked in Auckland, enjoy a city sightseeing tour followed by wine tasting on Waiheke Island. Start your full-day shore excursion with pickup at the port, then be whisked away to Auckland’s city center where you’ll motor past key landmarks in the ‘City of Sails.’  Your guide points out Quay Street, the Harbour Bridge, Queen Street, Auckland University, Auckland Museum, and Dominion Parks and Garden. Discover Auckland’s island-sprinkled harbours — Viaduct Harbour and Waitemata Harbour — surrounded by the cones of dormant volcanoes, and learn of the city’s geographical and cultural features as your guide follows the waterfront route along scenic Tamaki Drive. After lunch in the Viaduct Harbour area (own expense), it’s time to taste some of New Zealand’s award-winning wines. Ride the local Fullers Ferry across the Hauraki Gulf to Waiheke Island, a top-notch North Island destination.  After a 40-minute cruise, your guide meets you at the pier and escorts you to three acclaimed wineries: Mudbrick Vineyard, the Goldie Room on Goldie Vineyard and Te Whau Vineyard. Sample premium wines against a picturesque backdrop of the Hauraki Gulf and Coromandel Peninsula.  Upon returning to Auckland’s waterfront by ferry, you’re transferred back to the cruise terminal. Worry-free Shore Excursion: We will ensure your timely return to the Auckland cruise port for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded.
