One Way Hires to the Bay of Islands and visiting Northland

Our vessels are based at Bayswater, Auckland, in the heart of the Hauraki Gulf.  The Gulf abounds with beautiful islands, snug anchorages, great open water sails, marine life and great scenery! Normally charters start and finish at Bayswater

If you're a bit more adventurous, vessels over 36 feet are able to cruise the Northland coast and visit the beautiful ports and anchorages from Whangarei northwards on longer cruises. (detailed charter limits are here)  Please note that Vessels proceeding from Auckland to Whangarei or further north also require a preparatory wash, which is a regulatory requirement to reduce the migration of marine fauna. This carries an additional cost of $750 per vessel …. Please tell us when you book if you intend to go that far, so we can arrange this. 

If you want to cruise the 110 miles of coast from Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf to the Bay of Islands, as long as the total duration of your charter is ten days or more we can arrange a one-way charter for you on vessels over 36 feet.  Charters to the Bay of Islands finish at Opua Marina, which is about 10 minutes by car from the tourist town of Paihia..   A drop off in Opua incurs a repositioning fee equivalent to two days’ charter, and includes a one-night marina berth in Opua.
