What you can expect

Discover the outer Hauraki Gulf aboard the 41-foot catamaran Pacific Star, with daily departures from Waiheke Island.

We’ll stop at a pest-free island for a guided walk, plus you’ll have opportunities for swimming, snorkelling and stand-up paddleboarding.

Our guide will help you learn about the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park, its islands, history and people. You’ll learn about the oceanography of the Gulf, the resident and migratory species which make the Gulf their home and current conservation efforts on land and sea as we glide along with the wind in our sails.

This unique eco adventure is the only day sailing trip offered in the outer gulf and departing from Waiheke Island.

If you’d like to take the helm or help us trim the sails, skipper Bruce will be happy to show you the ropes.

Your itinerary will depend on the wind direction and weather, so that we can give you the most enjoyable and comfortable experience.
