Board your sailboat at Viaduct Harbour to start your dinner cruise. Your expert captain welcomes you to the vessel and provides a safety briefing before you set out on the water. Take a seat in the cockpit and enjoy the fresh breeze and city views as your 50-foot (15-meter) yacht glides from Viaduct Harbour to a calm anchorage in Westhaven Marina.

While your boat is at anchor, savor a delicious 3-course dinner served in the dining room below deck. A range of beverages can be purchased from the ship's bar. Afterward, soak in the sights of the city as it lights up for the night while your boat sails across the waters of Waitemata Harbour.

Get amazing views of waterfront highlights including Auckland Harbour Bridge and the Ferry Building. See the iconic Sky Tower, which measures more than1,066 feet (325 meters) and is the tallest building in New Zealand. In the distance, the volcanic cone of Mount Eden rises above the surrounding fields and city outskirts. Your captain points out suburbs such as Devonport and gives you background on the sights that you pass throughout your cruise. Take great photos of Auckland during the light of the "magic hour" at dusk.

Learn about New Zealand’s national passion for sailing, and their strong performances in international competitions such as the America’s Cup. You also have the option to try your hand at steering the boat or helping the crew to hoist the sails. Or just relax and savor the experience.

After a 2.5-hour cruise, your sailboat returns to Viaduct Harbour where your tour ends.

Lots of fun. Lovely meal and friendly, welcoming crew. What a fantastic experience to take the helm and steer the yacht once the sails were up! Very Titanic "king of the world" moment!
