Auckland City is squeezed between two harbours, Manukau Harbour on the west coast and Waitemata Harbour on the east coast.

Take a cruise on Hauraki Gulf out to Rangitoto Island, or Waiheke Island. Around the coastline, there are many great beaches, bays and islands made for the boating enthusiast, a favourite pastime. There are more boats per person in Auckland, New Zealand than any other place in the world, giving Auckland its nickname, “The City of Sails”. It is no surprise that favourite holiday past times include swimming, fishing, diving, and windsurfing.
