On the land, you will find iconic volcano’s, fabulous beaches and lush rain forests all able to be explored for free.

From the moment we pick you up from the ferry terminal, it’s our mission to live up to your highest expectations. You’ll enjoy gorgeous scenery out the window of our luxury mini-bus, the comments of a local guide who knows everything about the island and its wines. If you want to extend your Waiheke experience, you can either stay on at the vineyards or asked to be dropped-off at The Cove, which is one of Oneroa’s best bars.

Your tour guide will greet you with a "Enjoy" sign at 10:35am Matiatia Bay ferry terminal, Waiheke Island.

The Auckland City Ghost Tour is a lantern lit small group walking tour of Auckland's most historic streets. We navigate through some of the oldest areas of Auckland and learn the authentic stories of the macabre and bizarre as your Ghost Walker tells haunting stories of murders, suicides and hangings all on a 2-hour journey through the night of Auckland City.

The Tour begins when we meet our guests beneath the Great Clock of Britomart Train Station. We take you behind the building and begin with the history of Auckland City from precolonial times to the founding of Auckland City. You are treated to stories of World War 1 and the Great 1918 Influenza Pandemic.

The tour is led through a number of historic locations, alleyways and around the original shoreline of the city. You will be given a detailed history of the native New Zealand Maori and learn such things as cannibalism, head shrinking, tribal warfare from a nation of warriors bred for the purpose of war.

The tour continues through a few murder locations including the location of the Short St Massacres resulting in an all out brawl between servicemen after World War 2. Beyond this area we arrive at The Queens Ferry hotel site of New Zealand's oldest Pub established in 1865, there are options available on tour to have snacks and refreshments when we reach this part of the tour at an extra cost. You will be graced by its hallowed hallways and narrow staircases leading into the Gin Room which still commands its presence of the mid 1800's even in this age of technology it is as if time stands still within its walls.

We carry on after refreshments and rest stops at The Queens Ferry Hotel and head to the site of New Zealand's first prison. Home to a few ghosts as a result of the prisoners being buried into the foundations of the building. Tales are told of the former justice system and some light is shed on the public hangings which took place here and the techniques implemented in taking the lives of prisoners.

Upon completion at the first prison our sights are set for another highlight of the tour, the Famous Suitcase Murder of Auckland City, before heading to the Civic Theatre, one of the last Atmospheric Cinemas in the Southern Hemisphere. Beware this building is absolutely majestic and has been known to hold our guests captivated for quite some time as they learn of the Theater's Grey Ghost and it's Indian Architecture.

Then it is on-wards and upwards to Albert Park a beautiful park set within native trees and gondolas but this place holds a terrible secret as dark as the night itself. Many have taken their lives here and guests will also get an intimate account of the Influenza Pandemic and even further into the past your guide will explain how the Maori lived in this park prior to European colonization.

The Tour ends after guests are treated to stories of a secret cult, mysterious murders in a prestigious Hotel on Princes St, and the story of a milk company who harbors secrets so deadly people were executed to keep them and the history of it's building dating back to the early 1900's.

We end the tour at a site famous for it's experimental treatments at an Asylum before guests are dropped off at the end of the tour.

Your guides are professional photographers with an interest in the local  history and  ecology of the area so your day will be full of interesting facts and their photographic advice is free.

The day starts at 9am with a free pickup from your central city accommodation . We head out approximately 40minutes from the ctiy towards the West Coast . Situated at the foothills of the Waitakere Ranges we drive through Titirangi, an area rich in culture and with many galleries and outdoor Cafes it is a favorite spot for artists of many kinds.

We then head up the aptly named Scenic Drive where our first stop is the Arataki Visitor Center. Perched high on the ridge there are some amazing views of both coasts from the lookouts. Inside there are many interactive displays showcasing animals, plant life and early settlers lives in the ranges.

From here we head out to see a pristine area of native rainforest with many trees over 1000 years old. We also walk through the bush which is a relatively flat 1.5 km loop. If you would rather you can just do a section of the walk.

After some morning tea we head over to see two of our more famous west coast beaches Piha and Karekare. Although right next to each other on the Coast they are worlds apart in nature and ambience. Piha has the epic views , the iconic Lion Rock and is famous for its surf , many people call Piha home. Karekare by contrast has a different character, it is more brooding and isolated in nature and very few people live there.

We walk on both beaches as well as seeing some beautiful waterfalls and walking through some enchanting Pohutakawa glades.
Karekare is also the site of our barbecue and while the barbecue is cooking some people stroll along the beach while others are happy to sit and relax by the river, the choice is yours.

Feeling refreshed and invigorated  from your day in the fresh air we drop you back at your central city accommodation around 4.30-5.00pm.

This is a relaxed and flexible day tour to Aucklands black sand beaches and pristine Waitakere Ranges rainforest with many huge Kauri trees over 1000 years old. You will also get to see epic views of both coastlines of New Zealand.

As the tours are normally quite small we can be very flexible with time and where you might prefer to spend more time. If people want to spend time in the falls swimming or longer in the bush the tours we can accommodate your requests. The lunch is also an experience in itself with fantastic wholesome home made food and the very eclectic and very Piha surrounds at the Piha Cafe.

The tour starts with a pickup at approx 11.30am at your inner city accommodation then its approximately a 35 minute drive to the Arataki center at the start of the Waitakere Ranges. Here there is a unique opportunity to see both the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman sea on either side of NZ from one place. The Arataki center itself has extensive displays showing the diversity of wildlife as well as the early pioneers way of life.

We then head to the famous Piha surf beach renowned for its great surf and scorching hot black sand, a walk on the beach and dipping your toes into the cold Tasman sea is a must. Then its time for a treat with some wholesome food and drink at the Piha Cafe.

Next stop is over the hill at Karekare, only 10 minutes drive but a world away is the much more moody and Isolated Karekare Beach site of many films including Jane Campions film “The Piano” here we see the waterfall, If you'd like a swim at the waterfall it is safe and has fresh water and is a great option.

Noisy and alive one day and cloaked in low cloud and eerily silent the next our next stop is the Cascade Kauri Park in the heart of the Waitakere Ranges, here we walk a short track to see some giant Kauris majestically piercing through the canopy. The Ranges are steeped in ancient myths and legends and its easy to see why as you walk through.

From here we head back to Auckland central to drop you off refreshed and invigorated after a day of good food and clean air.

Climb to the top of Auckland Harbour Bridge with a professional guide for the ultimate Auckland experience. A safe and easy walk on specially engineered catwalks takes you from the base to the summit of the bridge, with amazing views all along the way. See Waitemata Harbour, Sky Tower, and other landmarks as your expert guide shares informative commentary about Auckland.

Begin by either catching the complimentary coach transfer from the Maritime Museum at Viaduct Harbour, or making your own way to the Westhaven Marina bridge climb office. At the office, your guide provides you with a safety briefing and introduction, as well as all-weather outerwear and safety gear. You can leave any extra belongings in the office lockers before heading out to the bridge.

When you’re suited up, follow your guide along custom-engineered walkways that lead to the summit of the bridge, which stands 200 feet (67 meters) above the water. Along the way, your guide points out engineering features and shares interesting facts about the construction and history of Auckland’s iconic bridge.

See the span from underneath and above during the climb, with regular stops to soak up amazing views of Auckland and Waitemata Harbour. Your guide helps you to identify landmarks in the Auckland skyline as you take in the spectacular sight of the city from this perspective. Also, your tour stops at the bungy jump platform where you get a great vantage point to watch the bungy jumpers take the plunge.

Your walk follows the gently curved arches of the bridge, for an easy climb that is suitable for a range of ages and fitness levels. Each person is clipped into a safety rail for added security. The provided outerwear keeps you warm and dry in all types of weather.

After about 1.5 hours and a memorable experience of the Auckland Harbour Bridge, you return to the bridge climb office to wrap up your tour.

Take a leap from the 1,076-foot-tall (328-meter-tall) Sky Tower, high above the city streets and Hauraki Gulf.

What's a good way for adrenaline junkies to get their fix in Auckland? Take a leap from the 1,076-foot-tall (328-meter-tall) Sky Tower, high above the city streets and Hauraki Gulf. This exhilarating jump includes a safety briefing with a professional jump master and all safety equipment. If you can keep your eyes open, you're in for stellar views that extend for miles.

Make your own way to the Auckland Sky Tower to check in for your jump. SkyJump is different from bungee jumping, as you remain in a 'super hero' position during a fast and smooth fall, then land on your feet at the bottom. There's no hanging upside down or bouncing as in bungee jumping; instead, you're going to be attached to a wire for a base jump.

Your expert guide welcomes you, provides a SkyJump suit to wear over your clothing, then assists you to securely fasten your safety harness and other equipment, including a specially designed GoPro camera, which records your jump from start to finish.

Once you are geared up, your guide escorts you up the Sky Tower to the jump platform, located 630 feet (192 meters) above the ground. Take in panoramic views over Auckland and the Hauraki Gulf as your guide walks you to the edge. Your guide makes sure that all safety checks are in place, then starts the countdown. Gather up your courage and jump!

Fall at around 50 miles (85km) per hour and experience an adrenaline rush like no other. The jump lasts a little longer than 10 seconds but feels monumental. When you land, the SkyJump team escorts you into the building where your accomplishment is greeted with glee by as many as 10 friends and family members, who can watch from the viewing area in the landing zone.

Remove your gear then check out your photos and video, which you have the option to purchase. All jumpers receive a certificate and free ticket to the observation deck in the Sky Tower, so that you can go back up the tower, admire the views and watch other jumpers take the plunge.

This 3-hour Auckland city tour showcases One Tree Hill, Cornwall Park, Acacia Cottage, Tamaki Drive, Michael Joseph Savage Memorial, amazing views of Waitemata Harbour, Auckland Harbour Bridge and Rangitoto Island. Visit ‘the bays’ Judges, Hobson, Okahu, Mission, Kohimarama, St Heliers, and Achilles Point.

One Tree Hill (Maungakiekie) a 597ft volcanic peak in Auckland. The mountain and its surrounds were home to the Te Wai o Hua tribe from the early 1700s. The largest and most complex volcanic cone/earth fortress known in the Southern Hemisphere.

Cornwall Park is the legacy of Sir John Logan Campbell and he left the park to the city of Auckland. The 220 hectares are now an Auckland Council administered park and working farm. Campbell bequeathed the obelisk as a centennial tower to Maori.

Acacia Cottage built in 1841 was relocated in 1956 to the park. It is one of the earliest surviving timber buildings in New Zealand.

Driving along Tamaki Drive we visit the Michael Joseph Savage Memorial. Australian born Michael Joseph Savage was New Zealand's first Labour Prime Minister. Architect of the welfare state, kind and friendly he never married and is buried on Bastion Point. He was considered to be New Zealand's most loved Prime Minister. Amazing views are to be had of the Waitemata Harbour, Auckland Harbour Bridge and Rangitoto Island.

We also visit 'the bays' Judges, Hobson, Okahu, Mission, Kohimarama and St Heliers. If it is your lucky day you may see dolphins out in the harbor. Achilles Point is our last stop along here and definitely worth the walk either to the lookout or the hike up to the right of the lookout.

After you've docked in port, your Auckland shore excursion begins with a meet and greet at your pickup location -- Prince's Wharf -- from where you'll enjoy a drive by comfortable minibus through Auckland's city center and western suburbs to the West Coast wine region.

If you've selected the morning tour option, you'll stop on the way to look out over the magnificent Muriwai black-sand beach on the wild Tasman Sea coast, and then take a short walk to the popular Takapu gannet colony, where you can get an up-close look at these large sea birds and take advantage of great photo ops.

At both a large established winery and a smaller boutique label, taste a range of New Zealand’s wines, from chardonnay to pinot noir to Bordeaux-style. During your guided winery visits (either two or three, depending on option selected), you'll also discover why the West Auckland region is known for its wide-ranging varieties of wines, made from grapes grown in such world-famous wine areas as the South Island’s Marlborough and Central Otago, and the North Island’s Hawke’s Bay and Gisborne.

Your trip back to the Auckland port takes you along the Tasman Sea for fabulous views of this wild, rugged coastline. You'll then arrive back at the waterfront in time to re-board your ship.

Take a train ride through native kauri forest for panoramic views over the Hauraki Gulf. Enjoy lunch at a local café and take a dip in a thermal pool on Hot Water Beach.

The Coromandel Peninsula is renowned for its beautiful white- and golden-sand beaches, rugged mountain terrain and pristine rain forest.  First discovered by two great navigators, Kupe and Cook, the area is popular among locals and tourists alike.

This morning, travel to the Coromandel township and the home of Barry Brickell, a potter, engineer and conservationist. Ride the train that Barry built through replanted native kauri forest, over viaducts and through tunnels as it climbs up the mountain to the viewing station. From here you will have panoramic views over the island-dotted Hauraki Gulf.

Then take a guided walk through the pristine rain forest to view some of the magnificent kauri trees which once covered the peninsula. Next, travel across the mountain divide and down to the beach, and enjoy lunch at a local café. After lunch, wander along the aptly named Hot Water Beach, and take a dip in one of the naturally occurring thermal pools in the sand or dig your own!.

At the end of the day, visit the famous Cathedral Cove and see where the Pacific Ocean washes through a natural arch.

Please note: The walk down to the arch is over uneven surfaces and dependent on weather conditions

The adventure continues as you are driven past native bush and rugged peaks to a private homestead, where you can enjoy a relaxed kiwi style picnic lunch. A short drive takes you to a sweeping, often deserted stretch of pristine white sand. There is time here for a swim or a meander along the beach to visit the graves of those drowned in one of New Zealand's worst shipwrecks. Visit the only working cattle and sheep farm on Great Barrier Island, where relics of the past remain. Here the world's largest population of Brown Teal can be found, a friendly little duck on the verge of extinction. At a nearby stream, monster eels come when called and can be fed if you dare!

This unforgettable day is rounded off with a climb to the top of Windy Canyon, a spectacular short walk. The path winds around rocky outcrops and past sheer cliffs coated with rata vines and takes in breathtaking views of the island and beyond.

30km or a 30 minute drive westwards from Auckland’s city center are the Waitakere Ranges. Rich in natural and cultural history, this area is today a Regional Park with more than 16,000 hectares of native rain forest and rugged coastline.

The hills, up to 474 meters high, are covered in dense rain forest with towering hardwood trees like Kauri, Rimu and Kahikatea and a jungle-like undergrowth. With its volcanic rocks and over 2000mm of rainfall each year, the area has a number of beautiful streams with waterfalls cascading through the forest.

We will be taking you to stunning locations off the beaten track. Not only to offer great photography motifs and opportunities but also to experience the heart and soul of the Waitakere Ranges. We have chosen locations that are unique in their way and that show the best of Auckland’s wild west.

At our first destination, we take you for two and a half hours into a Kauri forest. You will see native rain forest and magnificent Kauri trees along the way. 

Our next destination will be a short forest walk to a set of two waterfalls off the beaten track. The area around the falls offers several viewpoints, perfect to find the perfect spot. The 11m high curtain-type fall and its smaller neighbor carry water all year round.

The final destination takes us to the most diverse part of Auckland’s west coast: Bethells Beach. We arrive one and a half hour before sunset to find the perfect location for your golden and blue hour shots of black sand beaches and the rugged coast line of volcanic rock formations.

After being picked up from central Auckland, you'll head west, passing through an artsy town called Titirangi, or 'Fringe of Heaven' in Maori.

Otherworldly sights abound once you enter the native rainforest of the Waitakere Ranges. Just 40 minutes from bustling Auckland, this enchanted world feels completely different with its lush vegetation and plunging waterfalls. If the dramatic scenery seems familiar, it's possible you caught a glimpse of it in The Piano, an Oscar-winning film by Jane Campion.

Learn more about the subtropical rainforest and the animals that live there during a visit to the Arataki Visitor Centre. From the visitor center, you can see amazing views that stretch from Auckland's cityscape to the west coast’s Manukau Harbour.

Take your new knowledge west to begin your exhilarating four- to five-hour guided walk. Wind your way through the forest of indigenous silver ferns and red-flowered pohutukawa trees (known overseas as New Zealand Christmas trees). As you go, learn how the plants were used for medicinal purposes by the Maori. Walk under rows of towering kauri trees as you make your way to coastal lookouts for breathtaking views of the Tasman Sea, which separates New Zealand from Australia.

Stop to enjoy a picnic lunch in a secluded bush glade, along a dramatic clifftop clearing, or in a sheltered sandy cove, depending on the weather.

After lunch, continue your walk through the greenery down to the west coast’s most beautiful black-sand beach. Stroll along the shimmering black sand to the soundtrack of a pounding surf. Dip your toes in the wild Tasman Sea if the weather is warm, or keep walking to reach stunning waterfalls.

Rest your feet on the return trip to downtown Auckland, where you will be dropped off.

Your day tour includes three zipline flights on Waiheke Island, plus an interpretive walk through native bushland and a mini-tour of the island. Enjoy stunning views over the Hauraki Gulf on the short ferry ride to Waiheke Island from Auckland, and feel your adrenaline soar as you zipline above the forest!

Begin your Auckland shore excursion by catching the 9am ferry to Waiheke Island. The ferry departs from Pier 2 at the Auckland ferry terminal, less than a 10-minute walk from where you disembark from your cruise ship.

Relax on the 45-minute ferry trip over the Hauraki Gulf to Waiheke Island, and enjoy the stunning harbor views. On arrival at the island, only 11 miles (18km) from Auckland, meet up with your professional guide and begin your island tour.

Your 25-minute mini-tour of Waiheke takes you around the island by minivan en route to the visitor center at Trig Hill. Enjoy spectacular panoramic views of Auckland and the Hauraki Gulf from Trig Hill, one of the island’s highest points.

After checking in at the visitor center, put on your safety gear and follow your expert guide to the first viewing platform for the first of your three exciting 655-foot (200-meter) zipline flights. Before being securely attached to the zipline by a full-body harness, receive an instructional briefing from your guide. Personal attention is assured, as numbers are limited to a maximum of 12 zipline participants.

Your zipline adventure begins with a gentle flight above the rolling contours of a vineyard, easing you into the zipline experience. Then the excitement cranks up as the gradient is gradually increased on your next two flights, taking you soaring across a valley and above the treetops of New Zealand’s native forest.

Your Waiheke Island adventure continues back on the ground as you take an easy, guided 1-mile (1.5-km) interpretive forest walk back to the visitor center. You'll learn about New Zealand’s diverse flora and fauna as you walk.

Leaving the visitor center, return to the ferry terminal by minivan and catch the 40-minute ferry ride back to Auckland’s Pier 2, less than a 10-minute walk from your cruise ship.

Your guide will provide informative commentary about the island’s history, geology and surprisingly rich plant life, including the world's largest pohutukawa forest.

Catch your ferry at downtown Auckland’s ferry terminal and relax on the 25-minute trip to Rangitoto Island where you’ll meet your 4WD tram (pulled by a tractor). Hop aboard for a guided tour of the volcanic island with a knowledgeable guide who provides commentary on the island's geology, plant life and human history.

You'll journey across rugged lava fields as your guide explains the origins of the island, formed about 700 years ago after a series of volcanic eruptions. About 200 species of moss, plants and trees, including the largest Pohutukawa forest in the world, now thrive on the island.

The 4WD tram takes you to the base of the summit where you’ll walk a half mile (900m) along a wooden boardwalk to reach the top. Be sure to bring your camera for fantastic panoramic shots of Auckland and the Hauraki Gulf. You might also spot birds native to New Zealand, such as the saddleback, tui and fantail.

Once you have soaked in the scenery from Rangitoto’s summit, you’ll rejoin the tour vehicle for the return trip via the western side of the island. Pass some of the preserved bachs–modest beach homes that were built in the 1920s. Bach settlements have almost disappeared in New Zealand, making Rangitoto's a rare example of this piece of architectural history. You may also see remnants of obsolete ships that, in the old days, were left to rot on the island’s hidden shores.

Be sure to bring enough snacks, water and sunscreen for the day as there are no stores on the island. A moderate level of fitness is needed for the walk to the top of the summit; people who do not want to do the walk can enjoy the views from the base.

Other birds that can be found here include the stitchbird, saddleback, bellbird, brown teal, whitehead, kakariki, kokako, New Zealand robin, fernbird and penguins. Once deforested, the island has been recovering since 1984, when hundreds of volunteers started planting 300,000 native trees. Since then, 12 endangered native bird species and 3 reptile species, including the rare tuatara (a prehistoric lizard), have been re-established in the sanctuary. Your guide will give you tips about the best spots to see specific animals and how to identify the birdcalls that you will hear.

Your guide will finish the tour at the visitor center where you can browse through informative exhibits. Free tea and coffee is provided at the center and there are plenty of tables where you can eat your lunch (not sold on the island, please bring your own).

Afterward, you can relax around the Visitor Center and check out the lighthouse, built circa 1864 and once the brightest lighthouse in the southern hemisphere. Or explore the walking trails that wind throughout the island, with varying choices for different fitness levels. In warmer months, head to Hobbs beach for a swim. You’ll have about five hours total on the island, with plenty of time to explore and see some of New Zealand's rarest animal life. Numbers of visitors are limited in order to protect the wildlife in the open sanctuary. Don't miss this chance to visit magical Tiritiri!

Expert guides share fun facts and informative commentary throughout the trip as you soak up the natural wonders of New Zealand, just offshore from Auckland.

Make your way to Viaduct Harbour where your captain welcomes you as you board the custom-built 65-foot (20-meter) catamaran. The comfortable vessel ensures that you enjoy cruising the waters of Hauraki Gulf Marine Park as you look for whales and dolphins.

Some 23 different species call the Hauraki Gulf home, including the native Bryde’s whale.

Throughout your tour, your captain and the guides share informative and entertaining commentary about these critters of the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park, considered one of the world’s most biologically and geographically diverse marine parks.

Auckland weather is fickle, so dressing in warm layers and weatherproof gear is recommended. A sun hat (with chin strap to secure it), sunscreen, sunglasses, camera, binoculars and flat-soled shoes are also good essentials for your trip.

This small-group tour will showcase to you the highlights of New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland! Known as the ‘City of Sails’, you will enjoy plenty of stops throughout the day to allow you to see and feel what makes this vibrant city tick. You will also be given time for lunch at a secret garden!

Your Auckland Highlights tour will begin at the Princes Wharf and Queens Wharf where the cruise ships berth. Join us on a 6-hour (approximately) tour to see the main city sights and most famous landmarks.

We begin by heading East along the waterfront and our first stop is Bastion Point, a place of great significance in Auckland's recent history. Here you will be able to not only enjoy the beautiful harbour views but your guide will also explain the history of this location, once a point of conflict for Aucklanders.

Then it’s back down to the waterfront drive to the affluent suburbs of Mission Bay and St Heliers, passing by some of Auckland's most expensive homes on Paritai Drive, where many of Auckland's rich and famous live.

Next we will visit the Auckland Domain, location of the Auckland Museum and where the ANZAC ceremony takes place each year. However, there will not be enough time to visit the museum on this tour.

It's time for a break as we visit a very secluded garden set in one of the most affluent parts of Auckland and very close to Government House. Here you have time to buy a light snack or lunch at the cafe or just wander through the beautiful gardens, explore the many plant collections including perennials, vireyas, camellias, bromeliads and native New Zealand plants, with something always in flower.

After our lunch break we head north, through the trendy suburb of Ponsonby before crossing the iconic Auckland Harbour Bridge which offers some great views from high above the water, to Takapuna and Devonport on the North Shore where we will explore North Head, Mt Victoria and finally Devonport itself.

You have the option here to leave our tour and catch the harbour ferry back to the city centre, (ticket cost at own expense) and perhaps explore some of the interesting boutiques and shops as well beforehand, or just stay on the minibus and we will take you straight back to the ship in good time for its departure.
