Explore NZ - Pride of Auckland
The Pride of Auckland operates its fleet of large purpose-built sailboats on the sheltered waters of the sparkling Auckland (Waitemata) harbour.  The yachts have become the nautical icon in Auckland (City of Sails) for international, national, and local visitors alike. Auckland harbour is the hub of New Zealand's nautical playground. We offer you a range of daily cruises, ranging from a 90 minute lunch or coffee cruise, up to our two and a half hour dinner cruise, a full day sailing adventure or Waiheke sailing experience. We have four 15 metre (50 feet) yachts, each built from the same mould. These are Challenger and Courageous (the "C" boats), and Defender and Defiance (the "D" boats).
