Take a cruise on Auckland Harbour this Summer to the famous award winning Riverhead - a historic tavern. Experience the fantastic scenery and amazing history based around Auckland's upper harbour estuary's & the historic Riverhead.
The Boat trip:
Our fantastic boat cruise departs Z pier Westhaven in Downtown Auckland, and ventures into the beautiful sheltered, uncharted waterways of the upper Waitemata harbour, where we retrace the footsteps of early sailing ships and scows that once traded these waters. The trip to The Riverhead tavern takes 1.5 hours, we have a fully licensed bar on board and an informative commentary is given throughout the cruise.
Once at Riverhead, we depart the Vessel and head ashore into the newly renovated Riverhead - a historic tavern. The options are endless at the Riverhead, you can dine in at the Landing Resturant, check out the menu in the Portage bar, or enjoy a burger from the Boathouse grill, where a live blues band is staged from 2pm every Sunday and other selected dates during the Holidays. (See scheduled events) Whatever you decide to do there is no better place to be than The Riverhead. After 2 enjoyable hours at the Riverhead, we then board the Vessel again for a relaxing cruise back to Auckland city with The Red boats.
