Waiheke Island Cruise

A 1 to 1 ½ hour scenic cruise brings you to Waiheke Island, the second-largest island in the Hauraki Gulf.  Recently voted the fifth-best destination in the world by Lonely Planet, this ultimate NZ island retreat offers many secluded and vast white-sand beaches, most well known are Oneroa and Onetangi.  Make the most of the clear, sheltered waters and take a refreshing dip.

A great place for a stop off on the way to Waiheke, is the breathtaking Motuhei wildlife sanctuary Island. This stunning and popular weekend day trippers island is a nature reserve with white sandy beaches on three sides, giving an anchoring option for most wind directions. Weekdays it can be almost deserted.

Upon arrival at Waiheke you will quickly realise that there is more to this beautiful island paradise than the stunning beaches. Famous vineyards, olive groves, historic sites, and nature reserves are worthwhile attractions to see and experience. You can tailor an itinerary to suit your favourite interests.

Your choices are endless. Here are a few of our favourite suggestions to get you started:

  • Tuck into a vineyard lunch and wine tastings after your VIP luxury transfer and harbour cruise en-route

Arrange a tour of the exclusive sculpture parks on Waiheke - arrive by boat. Or stay at the Luxury Lodges such as Delamore, Te Whau, Cowes Bay, Hei Matua.
