Explore is a multi-award winning company offering an exciting range of sailing experiences in Auckland on the Waitemata Harbour. What better way to experience the City of Sails, than out on the water!

Select from the many sailing experiences Explore offer; sail or race an authentic America’s Cup Yacht, go on an Auckland Harbour Sailing Cruise, or perhaps enjoy a three-course meal on board the dinner cruise as the sun lowers in the sky. There really is a sailing experience to suit everyone.

All of Explore’s sailing experiences depart daily from the viaduct in the central city. No sailing experience necessary.

Park for $2 per hour at the Downtown car park on evenings and weekends. Find out more.

Come into the city centre on public transport for as little as $2 each way. Find out more
