For a gift to remember take your Child, Grandchild, Niece or Nephew on a unique cruise into the Beautiful uncharted sheltered waters of the upper Waitemata Habour, to the famous "The Riverhead" - a historic tavern. Our fantastic boat cruise departs Z pier Westhaven in Downtown Auckland and cruises into the far reaches of the upper harbour estuary, retracing the footsteps of early sailing ships and scows. The trip to The Riverhead takes 1.5 hours, there is a fully licensed bar on board and an informative commentary is given throughout the cruise.
Once at The Riverhead, we depart the Vessel and head ashore into the newly renovated Riverhead. The options are endless at The Riverhead, you can dine in at the Landing Resturant, check out the menu in the Portage bar, or enjoy the BBQ or Grazing Platers at the Boathouse grill, where a live blues band is staged from 2pm every Sunday. After 2.5 enjoyable hours at the Riverhead, we then board the Vessel again to enjoy the scenery and night lights of Auckland while relaxing on our cruise back to Auckland city with The Red boats. The Riverhead trip is tidal and our departure times are based around this. Please check our timetable on our website for departure time.
