The Pride of Auckland Company 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.

The yachts are also available for private charter so you and your guests can enjoy the Waitemata Harbour and inner Hauraki Gulf Marine Park at your own pace.


Experience a relaxed sailing experience aboard the Pride of Auckland; whilst enjoying the sights of Auckland, the City of Sails. Sail the inner Waitemata Harbour on this distinctively local Auckland excursion in a friendly and engaging environment.

Sail under Auckland Harbour Bridge, and go where the wind takes you. The crew’s expertise and local knowledge makes this the best harbour sailing experience Auckland has to offer. Become part of the crew and help take part in the sailing experience, or just sit back and relax. Enjoy the afternoon on the water with your choice of fresh coffee, tea or a hot chocolate plus a delicious sweet treat.
