About
IMPORTANT: TO BOOK THIS CHARTER, PLEASE SET THE NUMBER OF TRAVELERS = 1. YOU CAN BRING UP TO 11 FRIENDS WITH YOU! Discover the outer Hauraki Gulf aboard the 41-foot catamaran Pacific Star, with daily departures from Waiheke Island. Your charter is for exclusive use of the yacht with two crew (captain and host). We can stop at a pest-free island for a guided walk, plus you’ll have opportunities for swimming, snorkeling and stand-up paddleboarding. Our guide will help you learn about the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park, its islands and people. You’ll spot seabirds and may see dolphins, and even whales, as we glide along with the wind in our sails. This 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 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.

Cruising on the Hauraki Gulf
Bruce and Gabrielle hosted our group of friends on the Hauraki Gulf for the America’s Cup. It was a fabulous experience right from the start - they were warm and welcoming and got us all settled in before we got underway. They know great spots to anchor up and head for a swim or a SUP before putting on an amazing lunch that covered all our dietary requirements. To top it off, getting to watch the Cup race with Bruce and Gabrielle helping us understand what’s going on was a bonus. The boat is great - lots of spaces to enjoy the cruise, including up on the top deck, as well as space down below to stretch out and snooze. We will be back for more!

So glad you really enjoyed it - we love hosting people on the boat and showing them our beauty spots in the Gulf and of course the Americas Cup excitement was a bonus - see you again another time!

Such an amazing experience. We chartered the boat for friends for my 50th. Gabrielle and Bruce were awesome to deal with. Friendly, professional and accommodating. The food was also incredible. The whole experience was such a blast that I think we will do it again ( and again).
