      Auckland Adventure Duck Tour

      Auckland, New Zealand
      From (USD) $50 Per Adult
      (1 Review)
      • The perfect intro: Spend a fun hour seeing and learning about Auckland and its centuries-long relationship with the waters that surround it. It's a great way to get your feet wet without actually getting your feet wet.
      • Landmarks: See the iconic Sky Tower, historic Victoria Park and Market, The Cloud and Shed 10 at Queen's Wharf (where America's Cup and Rugby World Cup fans party), and the waterfront shopping and entertainment districts at Wynyard Quarter, the Viaduct, and Silo Park.
      • Splashdown: Once the Duck ducks into St. Mary's Bay, you'll enjoy fabulous skyline views at a leisurely five knots, passing the sea of masts at Westhaven Marina (biggest in the Southern Hemisphere), super-yachts docked at Viaduct Harbor and Silo Marina, bungy-jumpers leaping from the Harbor Bridge, and volcano-topped Rangitoto Island, built by 6,000 years of eruptions.
      About This Auckland Tour

      So too often, travel involves tradeoffs. To do this, you have to give up that. But then along comes a Duck, an amphibious that lets you have it all.

      It's an especially sweet option for this town, known for having one foot on terra firma and the other in the water. It's been that way for centuries, thanks to its extraordinary position on the Hauraki Gulf – with a huge sheltered harbor, jutting peninsulas, dozens of coves and bays, and assorted volcanic islands.

      Fact is, no matter how much the skyline has built up (and it's done so quite handsomely), Auckland's buildings only tell half the story. To get the other half, you have to get off dry land, and see how Auckland meets the water – reaching out with wharves, marinas, parks, and green fingers of land with suburbs that stand alongside ancient volcanic cones.

      On your watery voyage, you'll also discover cool new uses for the old harbor – like Silo Park, a thriving venue that's taken over where Golden Bay Cement's massive silos the stuff the city was built of. Today they're open-air movie screens, the 300-foot yachts nearby making for a pretty plush drive-in.

      Then there's the ultimate "City of Sails" landmark: some 2,000 boats, clustered at sprawling Westhaven Marina with the Harbor Bridge linked to its outer breakwater. It's one more signature Auckland sight you can experience with and no tradeoffs.

      You just need an hour and a Duck.

      Tall drink of water

      Few locations anywhere rival Auckland's nautical environs, whether for top-tier ocean racing or simple pleasure cruising. But with a population of 1.4 million, and an estimated one in three households to owning a boat, it's a wonder there aren't daily traffic snarls out on the water. Amazingly enough, there seems to be ample room for all – including M5, the world's largest single-masted yacht, which made a 2016 pit stop at Silo Marina. Getting in was tricky; her 300-foot mast doesn't fit under the Harbor Bridge.
