This cruise provides the opportunity to look back at the Auckland skyline from the Harbour whilst receiving an interesting commentary on the harbour and its history. In my opinion a must do tour whenever you visit Auckland. The cruise ticket price also includes a "free return trip" to Devonport which is another place with plenty of history.

My wife convinced me this would be worth it. We bought the tickets at the main office at the which offered a free trip to Devonport. Most of the passengers on the ferry disembarked at Rangitoto Island leaving the ferry nearly empty. The commentary provides you with a interesting insight as to how the whole harbour area was built.

Great scenic tour of Auckland's big bay on a fast little ferry. You can ride up top for the best views with a strong wind. We had reserved a ticket in advance from their web site and it worked out perfectly. This is a must do in Auckland.

We are Kiwis and decided to play tourists for a day and go on an Auckland Harbour Cruise. A beautiful day and off we went on the "Takahe". Didn't like the boat. Wrong design for a Harbour Cruise as you couldn't get to the front of the boat. You could only see out the side of you were inside the... More

We did the harbour cruise and got a free ticket to Devonport, the tour was really good, we had done the city tour by bus the day before, so seeing the city by boat was amazing, and Devonport we used that ticket later the same day and had so much fun, running up mt Victoria.

We had booked this harbour cruise from Europe before we left. The description was attractive and also gives the ferry return ticket to Devonport. It was a disappointing tour because the commentary were delivered bluntly and did not engage people. In the end it was more of a background noise. The boat is was not ideal for this kind of... More

Last day in Auckland prior to flying home so we booked on this one and a half hour cruise. Comfortable, enjoyable and informative. Would highly recommend for those who may suffer sea sickness. I do and took no medication and was fine. :)

This is a simple 1.5 hour circular cruise that takes you out towards Rangitoto Island, then back underneath the Harbour Bridge, before returning to the ferry terminal. You get to see a little more than you do from the ferries, but not much more. The commentary is interesting and there is a bar serving alcohol and free tea, coffee and... More

The Fullers Auckland Harbour cruise is interesting with many great views and good commentary. It was disappointing to spend only about five minutes at Rangitoto Island, just time enough to walk to the end of the jetty and back. A good way to appreciate a beautiful city on the water built around the water.
