Can get here either from the Wynyard Crossing bridge or from Customs st west (Viaduct harbour). Team New Zealand base is here. On the side of the building facing the Events Center there is an illustrated history of America's Cup. Don't miss it is part of Auckland's history.

The America's Cup Marina is a great place to linger and explore. near downtown Auckland but world's apart with its water and sailing orientation.

People all over the world know about our sailing abilities, this is an opportunity to show people what Auckland is really about, the harbour and the area is great, you can even go out on one of the previous America's cup boats, that is an experience not to be missed. if you love boats then you will enjoy this experience.

An amazing area that has had a major facelift of more recent years due to the America's cup. A former fishing port.
