Comodores Cruise | Te-Atatu Boat Club

The Commodores Cruise

Experience this Fantastic new cruise departing Auckland on board The Red boats Vessel Hogwash, cruising to the Popular West Auckland destination – The Te Atatu Boating Club. Our journey starts from Z Pier Westhaven marina where we take a relaxing cruise around Auckland Harbour while enjoying nibbles and and a few drinks from our licensed  on board bar.

We then head under Auckland’s Harbour Bridge  into the sheltered untouched waters of the upper Waitemata Harbour where we take a detour and cut behind Meola Reef and experience a scenic cruise into one of the famous west Auckland Rivers the Whau river, before arriving at our awesome new destination The Te Atatu Boating Club.

The trip to the boat club takes us around an hour. After approximately 3 hours at The Boat Club, we then board the Vessel again, where we crank up the music and party the night away cruising back to Auckland on the Red boats Vessel MV Hogwash.

The Boat Club

The Te Atatu Boating Club was started by a handful of volunteers in the early 1960’s.  They reclaimed some of the tidal area and made a rudimentary launching area.  Prior to that, boats had been pushed through the mangroves for launching.  In the mid-sixties there was more activity and sheds arrived on the site soon after.  The early clubhouse was made of prefab ex-school buildings and the existing clubhouse was opened in 1984.  A substantial wharf has been operating for quite some time with the boat club now hosting a large modern facility with the latest amenities and a warm friendly atmosphere. The Boat Club is a Great Venue for any occasion and can cater for most groups with a range of options to choose from.
