Hauraki Blue Cruises

Water Activities in Central Auckland

The flagship vessel of Hauraki Blue Cruises, Ipipiri is a 146 foot (44.5 metre) cruise catamaran, and the largest cruising ship permanently based in New Zealand. Spread over four levels, the ship offers 30 ocean view cabins, a spacious sundeck with 360 degree views and an 80-seat restaurant and bar.

For the past five years Ipipiri has cruised the sheltered waters of the Bay of Islands. In 2014 she was relocated to Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour and now, under the name of Hauraki Blue Cruises, she offers an overnight cruise experience around the sparkling waters of the Waitemata Harbour and Hauraki Gulf, as well as a premium Auckland wedding venue, and conferences, meetings and incentives venue.
