The Ports of Auckland provides Public Boat Tours on the Waitemata Harbour, which gives you an opportunity to view port operations from the sea. Port boat tours provide entertainment and learning opportunities for all ages.
The hour-long tours take you alongside the container terminals where you can see the big cranes and other machinery at work. The tour boat weaves in and out of the commercial wharves, while an informative commentary explains how each area operates. This is a family-friendly cruise with a commentary for all ages.
