Auckland - Waiheke Island
Depart Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour via our transfer service to meet your crew aboard Te Haerenga, your home away from home for the next few nights. Once on board, make yourself at home and join other guests for a drink before sitting down to a delicious buffet dinner. Your crew will brief you during the evening on the following day’s itinerary to suit the conditions.

aiheke Island - Great Barrier Island
After a leisurely breakfast, we will make our way over to Port Fitzroy Harbour, Great Barrier Island. Make sure you look out for dolphins and whales along the way as there is an abundance of them all around the Hauraki Gulf. Spend the afternoon enjoying your choice of water activities or on shore excursions before we move to Smoke House Bay for cocktails and a BBQ dinner.

Day 3: (Tuesday)
Great Barrier Island
Enjoy a buffet breakfast and take in the sights of the bay before we head off to discover more of this amazing island. Explore the area by Kayak or Paddle Board, take a walk on one of the many tracks or just simply relax. Then enjoy the peaceful surrounds of the tranquil bay as we spend our last evening together.

Day 4: (Wednesday)
Great Barrier Island - Auckland
After breakfast, we will make our way back across the Hauraki Gulf with a stop at Rakino Island for lunch and your choice of water activities. We will arrive back in Auckland for a 4.00pm disembarkation at Viaduct Harbour.
