The Red boats offer Chartered Cruises to any of the Hauraki Gulf Islands. Including Rangitoto Island, Rakino Island, Motutapu Island and Motuihe Island. Our Island day trips can be tailored to suit your requirements and are great way to enjoy a day on a sandy Island beach without leaving the country.

Island Day Cruise Full Day Charter

Our day cruises depart Auckland and Cruise firstly out of the inner Waitamata Harbour to the sheltered waters of Islington bay between Motutapu and Rangitoto Islands. Once at Islington bay, we drop anchor and have either your own BBQ, or one of our fantastic Catered Meals and an optional swim off the Vessel.

After lunch we then up Anchor and Cruise to one the beautiful untouched Islands of the Hauraki Gulf such as Motuihe, Rakino, Motutapu or Rangitoto Islands. Once we arrive at an Island of your choice, we then drop you ashore where you can either enjoy some games and activities on the beach, or just relax in the Sun on the beautiful untouched beaches of the Hauraki Gulf’s Treasure Islands.
