NZ 2016 – Day 15 – Auckland – Part 1 – September 2016 – Harbour Cruise

Saying goodbye

Some of the tour group was continuing north to the tip of NZ, but I was leaving the tour this morning. I got up and had breakfast with them, and then waved goodbye as they drove off.

I then went back to bed and slept for about an hour, and then headed down to the foreshore.

Harbour Cruise

Fullers operates a harbor cruise, so I decided to do this for the morning. It was pretty good. I didn’t realize they also make a stop on Rangitoto Island.

Auckland Harbour

Auckland harbour is quite different yet similar to Sydney harbour – Sydney harbout isn’t a port as such, so there aren’t many commercial or container ships, but the sailing ships were a familiar sight.

Westhaven

I wish I had the money to own one of these boats…. I could probably afford the dingy though!
