Auckland is blessed with a stunning harbour and gulf. The title "city of sails" is an excellent description of a summers day on the water.
Because of Auckland's temperate climate most days people are out in boats. This possible goes some way to understanding why New Zealand in events such as the Americas Cup, Round the world races, Olympic sailing events etc. continually is so successful, even with a relatively small population.
There are many trips available leaving from the Ferry Terminal, Viaduct Harbour etc. that cater for excursions on the harbour, or out to several islands with sight seeing opportunities, vineyards, restaurants even a bird sanctuary.
For the more adventurous there is dolphin and whale watching, fishing trips and even yacht racing in ex Americas Cup boats.
Take advantage of the opportunity at comparatively very modest cost.
