About
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 and people. You’ll spot seabirds and may see dolphins, and even whales, 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.

An unforgettable experience in the Hauraki Gulf
Oct 2020
This is a unique opportunity to combine sailing in the Hauraki Gulf and walk some trails in this magnificent environment. We had a fabulous day out on Pacific Star hosted by Bruce, a highly competent and relaxed skipped and his delightful wife, Gabrielle, with her profound knowledge of our native bird life and vegetation. Their 41 foot catamaran is very well appointed and comfortable and Gabrielle provided us with a delicious lunch on board. An unforgettable experience!

Well done Terra & Tide!.
Nov 2020
Thoroughly enjoyed our cruise with you in Pacific Star in the sunshine on the glittering Hauraki Gulf. We especially appreciated skipper Bruce and host Gabriella’s warm, welcoming manner and their efforts to ensure all on board had a special experience.
The boat is very well appointed, comfortable and provisioned with the best Waiheke has to offer.
Many thanks from Chris and Bob. We will be back!

Food, wine, sun and sea in one happy package.....
Nov 2020
Had a fabulous relaxed day out in the Gulf on Gabrielle and Bruce's very comfortable and stable catamaran with a very congenial group of adventurers. Skipper Bruce is highly experienced and capable and Gabrielle the consummate host. She even got those of us who were reluctant to swim into the water - and very grateful that we had done so. Freshly brewed coffee and homemade cake warmed us up in a jiffy!

Will definitely book a spot on one of their America's Cup trips.

Fabulous day on water and in the bush
Nov 2020
A beautiful and relaxing way to enjoy the gulf. Bruce is a very knowledgeable skipper with years of experience. Gabrielle has been running Walking by Nature for many years and has a very deep understanding of the bush and all that is in it. Great food and a fabulous day out.
