      Waitemata Harbor's name means "obsidian glass" in Maori. And the name fits. The waters there sparkle and glint just like the darkly mysterious volcanic rocks early Polynesian settlers first found there almost seven centuries ago.

      Yet beyond the trademark shimmer, Waitemata offers other attributes that make it attractive, especially to ship captains. Bays well-sheltered from the wind, deep and navigable channels, and an absence of sand bars and hull-gouging shoals.

      No wonder British naval Captain William Hobson chose to situate New Zealand's first permanent capital there in 1840, when he became its Lieutenant-Governor. Wellington eventually took over first-city duties, but Auckland grew and thrived. Today it ranks as one of the world's most livable cities, offering an enviable balance of urban sophistication, natural beauty, and wild adventure.

      Out on the water, you're seeing the city as it was meant to be seen. From marinas loaded with sleek super-yachts and sailboats, to the Harbor Bridge where bungy jumpers plunge to within inches of the waves. From ancient Maori hill forts and modern coastal gun batteries on Devonport's bluffs, to a skyline shared by the Italianate spire of Town Hall and the ultra-modern Sky Tower, with Bean Rock Light adding its 19th-century painted-wood character to the scene. All beautifully reflected on the harbor's glistening obsidian waters.

      The Big Baby

      It may not be the most dignified of names, but it's the affectionate moniker Aucklanders use for the iconic peak of Rangitoto Island – largest and youngest of the 50-or-so volcanic cones that surround the city. It last went off, in a big way, around 550 years ago, building much of the current island a lava outflow equal to all other Auckland eruptions over the last quarter-million years. Delicate ecological balance is protected as a bio-reserve.

      Non-refundable if canceled within 24 hours of requested services.
