City of Sails
Discover the thrill of sailing a Yacht from the America’s Cup, the world’s oldest and most prestigious sporting trophy and ultimate yachting regatta. Passengers are invited to become crew of the NZL 40 or NZL 41, to take the helm or exert energy on the grinders, but there is also the option to simply sit back and enjoy the action as you sail across the scenic Auckland Harbour. This trip suits people of all experiences and abilities and is the perfect activity in Auckland, the ‘City of Sails’.
Moments from the hotel’s doorstep, embark on an exciting half day adventure, paddle from Auckland’s bustling shores to picturesque Motukorea Island, one of the best-preserved volcanoes in the Auckland Volcanic Field. Private boats and sea kayaks are the only means of access to this untouched island. Once there, kayakers can enjoy a light picnic before hiking to the island’s summit, to take in the breath-taking panoramic views.
The Perfect Drop
The famous Waiheke Island, just 30 minutes from downtown Auckland by high-speed catamaran, is home to over 30 wineries and vineyards all nestled into a picturesque landscape.
