KEY CRUISING AREAS OF NEW ZEALAND

New Zealand is a land of variety from the subtropical white sandy beaches in the North Island to the deep and mysterious Sounds and fiords in the South - it can provide something for everyone, from sitting reading in a quiet bay, to jetboating and bungy jumping, fishing, diving and snorkelling, all surrounded by stunning scenery.
Key Cruising Areas - A superyacht guide to Asia Pacific cruising destinations, with sample itineraries
 
With 14,000km of stunning coastline, New Zealand punches way above its weight with its offerings.  Sheltered harbours, inlets and bays throughout the country create the perfect cruising conditions for any superyacht coming to New Zealand, with the added bonus of land-based activities for those wanting to do a little something different.

For a very small country, New Zealand can offer more in less miles than any other country on earth. With such 
varied terrain between the North and South Islands, you would think you were in two separate countries.  
Sandy white beaches and rolling hills in the North Island with big city shopping, diving and fishing heaven and 
warm temperate conditions, to rugged sounds and fiords in the South Island with adventure mecca Queenstown 
and vineyards offering some of the world’s best new wines.
 
Wherever you travel in New Zealand, you will see spectacular scenery: from the glaciers to the alpine regions, 
rugged fiords and long white sandy beaches, rolling hills and alpine tundra, to lush rainforests and volcanic regions with surreal boiling mud pools and steaming geysers.  
 
Only a one hour steam from Auckland’s CBD, the Hauraki Gulf offers many options for guests from Waiheke Island, New Zealand’s version of Martha’s Vineyard, to Great Barrier Island with its amazing diving. Enduringly popular is the Bay of Islands, the gateway to the North of the North Island, and its 100+ islands offering shelter, sandy beaches and activities.
 
Head to the South Island and it’s a different world with the same laid back kiwi culture. The Marlborough Sounds 
offer amazing diving and access to New Zealand’s leading white wine vineyards. For the adventurous, Fiordland is 
perfect, with its dramatic almost Jurassic scenery and adventure.
 
You are guaranteed to be blown away by what New Zealand has to offer. To see the whole country allow seven to 
eight weeks to truly enjoy the total experience. If you have less time, stick to Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf and the sunny Bay of Islands in the North.
