Directions to New Zealand Maritime Museum Sailings
The Museum runs a fleet of historic vessels, which are crewed by volunteers and sail around the harbour and beyond.
The main ship is the Ted Ashby, a ketch rigged scow that is typical of those that operated in northern New Zealand waters. Visitors can sit back and enjoy the view, or get involved and help to sail the ship. The ticket price includes entry to the New Zealand Maritime Museum, which is located in Viaduct Harbour.
The Museum also operates the Breeze, a square-rigged brigantine which is a traditional wooden sailing ship. These vessels were used in the 19th and early 20th century by traders sailing around New Zealand and between the Dominion countries.
The Breeze operates sailings around the harbour, but can also be booked for a full day trip around the Hauraki Gulf. This trip includes around six hours of sailing around the islands and landmarks of the Gulf, includes lunch and offers the chance to swim in the one of the calm island bays. Lucky sailors might even spot a whale or a dolphin during the trip.
Visitors who prefer a shorter sailing trip, can hop aboard the SL Puke steam tug. Built at the end of the 19th century the tug operates 15-minute rides that cost just a few dollars.
During the summer, keen adventurers can try their hand at sailing Waka Horua, a traditional double-hulled canoe. The trip includes a Maori welcome and explanation of the culture before a hands-on sailing experience.
Sailing times for each experience vary throughout the year so visitors should check with the museum before booking. Visit the sailings section of the Museum website for pricing and latest sailing information.
