Auckland & Hauraki Gulf, NZ Yacht Charter Itinerary

Soak in “New Zealand Pure”. Pure Fun, Pure Beauty, Pure Adventure.

The North Island hub of Auckland is a fantastic starting point for New Zealand yacht charter itineraries. From here you can spend a week exploring the eclectic sites of the Haruki Gulf. From the bustling city center to the amazing surrounding wilderness, Auckland offers a plethora of attractions to keep you enthralled for quite a number of days, so make sure you plan extra time here either at the beginning or end of your New Zealand yacht charter vacation.

Following is just a taste of what you can experience on a one-week New Zealand yacht charter itinerary:


  • Day 1 Auckland

    Board your private luxury yacht where you’ll meet the crew who will look after you for the week. Kick off your shoes, settle in and cast off to begin your journey of discovery in the stunning Haruki Gulf.

  • Day 2 Waiheke Island

    One of the closest islands to Auckland, Waiheke is renowned for its outstanding wineries, turquoise waters and idyllic beaches. You’ll be amazed at the dreaminess of this place, especially as it’s merely half an hour’s sail from such a modern city. Indulge in a sumptuous gourmet vineyard lunch whilst sampling some of the best drops made in this fertile country, take an afternoon stroll along Oneroa Beach and soak up a bird’s eye view of the island on a scenic sightseeing flight.

  • Day 3 Coromandel Peninsula

    A mid-19th century gold mining town, Coromandel is an enticing historic town, home to a great museum which tells the tales of the region’s gold-rush era. The verdant peninsula of the same name stretches for over 50 miles and is a wonderland of luscious forest-covered mountains and unspoilt beaches. Discover Kauri history in charming coastal villages and go in search of deserted coves. Coromandel boasts one of the most picturesque stretches of New Zealand coast, the ideal playground aboard private luxury yacht charters.

  • Day 4 Great Barrier Island, Tryphena

    Hauraki Gulf’s largest island, Great Barrier is a spectacular natural haven, boasting native forests, gleaming stretches of sandy beaches and spectacular surf. This is the epitome destination for New Zealand wilderness adventures! The island is traversed by more than 160 miles of walking tracks and more dreamy coves than you could ever visit in just a single day. On a Great Barrier Island menu, you’ll find thrilling mountain biking, excellent diving, and rewarding fishing, the perfect ingredients for relaxing yachting. Tonight you can soak up the most magnificent sunset of your entire week!

  • Day 5 Port Fitzroy

    Today, you’ll wander to the northern end of Great Barrier Island, and explore enticing Port Fitzroy. A bird lover’s paradise, the natural harbor of Port Fitzroy is splendidly picturesque. This is a wonderful springboard for more hiking options, ending in refreshing swims below cascading waterfalls. On this side of the island you can visit a Kauri plantation, and learn all about the historic boatbuilding for which this region of New Zealand is renowned.

  • Day 6 Kawau Island

    The sheltered bays of Kawau make it one of the most serene stops on a New Zealand yacht charter itinerary. Perfect for the last day of your unforgettable journey. Historically, this was a copper mining area and Mansion House – the humble abode of one of the country’s most revered Governors of the 1800s – is a wonderful place for history lovers to visit, with its tropical gardens home to unique species of flora. Take a leisurely walk along the waterfront and spend your last afternoon aboard your private yacht relishing the luxury and arguably the most beautiful view of Kawau Island.

  • Day 7 Auckland

    Today, it’s farewell time. Return to Auckland to disembark and head home, no doubt planning your next visit to New Zealand already.
