Picture yourself on a sailboat, sipping your afternoon tea or cocktail, crossing the waters of Auckland's Waitemata Harbour. This New Zealand harbour not only offers daily sailing adventures, but also world famous boating races (it was once home to the America's Cup). Waitemata Harbour also presents a fabulous destination for windsurfers, often holding contests for this activity. A lot of visitors enjoy a day kayaking through the harbour and the nearby Manawa Marine Reserve.
Then the cruise ship left the dock. We looked out at the city view of Auckland and the Waitematam harbor area and left the coast. We saw the sky towers and tall buildings in the distance. We saw the container terminals and tower cranes on the shore. We also saw the New Zealand naval ships docked in the military harbor.
When we meet a top-quality tour guide, we call him an invisible rich man. If he is really rich, he should not be a tour guide. When he is a tour guide, he should change his role well. If he really likes the job of tour guide, he can boast that he has had a yacht, a funny Festival and a good view.
At Waitemata Port, you can find a dedicated sailing agency. You can choose short-distance or full-day flights according to your time and enjoy sailing at sea.
Located in the northern part of New Zealand's urban area, Whitemata offers a panoramic view of Auckland's urban area, as well as the style of the Auckland Harbour Bridge. It can also be seen from the Sky Tower in Auckland.
There are many private yachts or yachts for tourists to rent. There are many restaurants around.
Waitemata Harbour is in Devenport, the sharp point protruding from the north coast of Auckland, where Daily's ferry runs back and forth between devenport and city, basically 15-30 minutes from a regular boat. And unlike city, which has many people, a very quiet rich area, you can also see its invincible seascapes, including Skytower scenery.
The excellent harbour has created a unique style of coastal cities in New Zealand. New Zealanders own a high proportion of sailing boats and yachts, ranking first in the world, with an average of one in every 2.7 people owning a boat. Therefore, in Auckland, you can see adults and children, will leisurely sail to sea, enjoy life. And the reputation of "the capital of sailing boats" does not wander.
The annual "Americas Cup" sailing race held in Port Whitemata is a thousand sails race, the momentum is huge enough to become the annual grand occasion of Auckland. In many harbors of Auckland, there are dense yachts and sailboats, especially the array of sailing boats. It is a spectacular sight with numerous masts. Aucklanders won the American Cup twice in 1996 and 2000, and Auckland hosted several American Cup sailing competitions. New Zealanders are proud to call Auckland City of Sail.
What a beautiful beach view. The sea water and its surroundings are very clean and beautiful. The beach culture here is very good.
Devonport Village is a charming coastal town. It's only 10 minutes from downtown Auckland by ferry across Waitemata Harbour. There are many Victorian villas here, and each one is very distinctive. We're ready to go aboard.~
