A Hauraki Blue Overnight Cruise offers a unique overnight experience that will immerse you in the breathtaking beauty of the Hauraki Gulf.

The Cruise

An 18 hour overnight cruise on one of the most beautiful harbours in the world. Travel around the fascinating Hauraki Gulf islands, explore secluded beaches, paddle about in a kayak or snorkel in the clean, clear Pacific Ocean.

Learn about the region's history and cultural significance aboard our 44.5m (146ft) catamaran. With a relaxed and friendly onboard environment, guests can choose to do as much or as little as they please.
Hauraki Blue's extensive viewing decks, including a large rooftop sundeck provide excellent vantage points for photo opportunities and our highly skilled and knowledgeable local crew is always on hand to answer questions.

The Accommodation

Your cruise experience is enhanced by our 30 identical ocean view cabins, each with private en-suite and panoramic sea views. Rooms have air conditioning and a king size bed, plus everything you need to make yourself at home.

The Meals

Relax on deck and drink in the views, and follow it all with a three course à la carte dinner featuring fresh local produce matched with New Zealands finest beer and wine.

Guests enjoy a continental and full cooked breakfast the following morning. Tea and coffee are provided throughout the cruise.

The Activities

Complimentary onboard activities are made easy with a unique hydraulic stern plate providing easy access to the sheltered clear waters of the Hauraki Gulf. Guests can choose from kayaking, swimming and snorkelling.
