Day Cruises Auckland

Day Cruises & Excursions

Our day cruises depart Auckland and Cruise firstly out of the inner Waitamata Harbour to the sheltered waters of Islington bay. Once at Islington bay we drop anchor and have either a BBQ, or one of our fantastic Catered Meals and an optional swim off the Vessel. After lunch we then up Anchor and Cruise to the beautiful untouched Motuihe Island. Once at Motuihe we 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 at Motuihe Island.
Our half day option is fantastic for those who only want to spend a few hours on a Island, and travels direct to Motuihe, or Motutapu. where you can relax in the sun, take a swim at the beach, or just enjoy socializing with your family and friends.

Help look after the island:

Motuihe is a predator free island, so all animals are prohibited. A pest eradication programme is on-going.

Important biosecurity information

Our vessels are licensed by the Department of Conservation and the Auckland Council to visit islands in the Hauraki Gulf. We run a biosecurity system (on all our vessels) which meets the criteria to hold a ‘Pest-Free Warrant’ for the Hauraki Gulf.
What you need to do to prepare for your trip to pest-free DOC Island:
Please check your bags for stowaways: Mice, Rats, Argentine Ants and Rainbow Skinks to name a few.
Ensure your footwear, clothing and bags are clean and free of soil and seeds. Your lunch must be packed in a rodent-proof/ sealed container eg. hard plastic.
No open bags or boxes – everything you bring must be sealed or zipped closed.

If you would like to stay on the island overnight please book here.
Any overnight gear ie. sleeping bags, need to be checked for pest stowaways.
Food must be packed into rodent-proof/ sealed containers.
If you have any doubts or questions about your packed items please ask customer services staff or the boat crew.
