We throughly enjoyed our harbour cruise and dinner experience. Had the perfect evening and weather for it. Courageous was fun to have ago steering and comfortable to sit back and enjoy to views. Canapés were great, main and desert very good for on a boat. Staff on board were entertaining, friendly and very knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

The relaxed atmosphere and views of the City are well worth the price of the tour. Noel and his crew were very friendly and getting to steer a 50 ft sailboat is pretty neat. Food is average but the whole experience is worth the cost.

This was a fun, laid back evening. We were served appetizers and beer or wine after we got out into the harbor. It was a little cool, so we were able to go into the galley for dinner. The food was very good, and the crew was most attentive.

Had a great time sailing around harbour on a beautiful summers night, plenty to see including many expensive boats/ super yachts l will never be able to afford. The crew where fantastic and really looked after us. Great food and the company of fellow dinners help make the night.

lovely dinner and wine sailing gently around the harbour drooling over super expensive boats. Then an amazing time sailing at full whack with the sun setting and a beautiful backdrop of auckland. Absolutely loved it, can totally recommend this with no reservations whatsoever. Fabulous trip, thank you so much for a great start to our nz adventure.

The sailing cruise was very pleasant. The food was good, and it was enjoyable to have the opportunity to steer (however poorly) the boat!

Was apprehensive booking this dinner cruise as not all reviews on trip advisor were good BUT it was amazing. Plenty of food, canapés served on deck with complimentary glass of bubbles, then we moored and had mains and dessert in the cabin. Crew were just outstanding. On the way back we were allowed to steer the boat. It was cold... More

Highly recommended if you are keen on personalised service and just want to enjoy sailing, nice food and intimate company. Both Julia and Alex were our crew, and they were professional and very friendly. It was first timer for my aged parents to be sailing, and the crew made them at ease and were very patient at explaining everything to... More

Dinner entree and dessert was great and just wish it's more. However the main dish is a let down so we didn't finish it. Service was great and the crew was informative. Blankets was also provided.
