Explore Group provides exclusive experiences on the water for groups of 5-500.

With an impressive fleet of vessels, including America’s Cup racing yachts, day cruise and overnight cruise vessels (that can also serve as floating venues for a variety of uses), we can provide a range of options for your next event. There’s simply no better way to experience Auckland, the ‘City of Sails,’ than from the water! 

Some of our most popular experiences include: 

**NEW** ‘Te Haerenga’ Day/Overnight Cruises - A new addition to our fleet, ‘Te Haerenga’ (meaning The Journey) is our 45 metre overnight cruise vessel and floating venue. With 30x en-suite cabins, we can accommodate up to 60 passengers for overnight cruises or up to 150 day cruise passengers. Te Haerenga also boasts one of the largest open-air roof decks in Auckland at 138 square metres and can offer a wide range of catering options. 

America's Cup Sailing/Racing - For a truly memorable team-building activity or group experience, come on board with us to sail an actual America’s Cup Yacht. Take the helm to steer on course or work hard on the grinders to hoist and trim the sails during this hands-on sailing adventure.

Auckland Harbour Cruises – Jump on board our 29 metre cruise vessel ‘Peretū’ and cruise the sparkling waters of the Waitemata Harbour in style. With capacity for up to 180 passengers, we can arrange food and beverage to be served on board providing a truly unique and memorable experience for our passengers. 

All of our vessels are available for exclusive hire so please contact us to see what we can do for your next event.
