Welcome to New Zealand

It is not for nothing that New Zealand is known as ‘the whole world in one country.’ For a small country, New Zealand offers more in fewer miles than any other country on earth. From rainforest to snow, to white sand beaches, geothermal sites, and glaciers, New Zealand has it all.

The country offers a unique blend of cultures, and Maori culture is a core part of New Zealand’s national identity. With its Polynesian history added to that of the European settlers, New Zealand has a rhythm all on its own with a relaxed sunny atmosphere that is fiercely competitive, especially on the sports field.

A country synonymous with the water, seafarers have always been attracted to New Zealand’s unspoiled and beautiful shores. There are than 15,000km of beautiful coastline across two main islands – North and South – and hugely varied landscapes.

Key Cruising Areas

New Zealand is a land of variety from the subtropical white sandy beaches in the North Island to the deep and mysterious Sounds & Fiords in the South. New Zealand can provide something for everyone from sitting reading in a quiet bay to jet boating and bungy jumping, fishing, diving, snorkelling all surrounded by stunning scenery.

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 it’s 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.

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.

The service that we have received from yourself and your team at Asia Pacific Superyachts NZ has been exemplary. From prior to Aquijo’s arrival into Auckland in September 2018, right through a busy maintenance period and an extensive Owner Cruise around New Zealand, you have gone out of your way to assist the vessel and her crew with everything that has been required.

Your ability to clear inbound shipments quickly, and your ‘Kiwi Can-Do’ attitude in particular, have been just a couple of the many reasons that I will be happy to recommend your services to any other Yachts which I hear are headed to New Zealand in the future.

Thank you sincerely for all of your help.

Luke Hoskins
Captain, SY AQUIJO.

“For the lead up months prior to arrival Asia Pacific Superyachts NZ were forthcoming with assistance and with additional  matters regarding the pet dog we carried onboard and Helicopter permits that were to require special attention. The organization of provisions, fuel, dockage, amenities and all those usual odd extras we could throw at them were arranged without hassle. The itinerary and guides selected to suit the owner’s requirements were perfect. Land excursions, flights and accommodation ashore were all organized by Asia Pacific and executed without fault.”

“Asia Pacific Superyachts NZ were simply the most productive and supportive agents I have ever had the pleasure of engaging. Whether Jeanette or Janice was responding to a request from me or from another member of crew, they acted in the same manner and always went out of their way to deliver. Jeanette’s knowledge and her ability to make things happen were a great asset to have during our trip around New Zealand. Janice’s ability to make things appear as soon as the email was sent or phone call ended went into making the trip run as smooth as possible. They truly were a 24/7 support to us.”

“With regard to your services when we were in NZ twice in 2017 I have to say that they were superb. You guys put a lot of time in each vessel making them feel that they are the only ones that you are servicing at any one time. Nothing was a problem and you would go out of your way to make things happen. Your care of the crew with regard to extra-curricular activities was awesome and we would not hesitate to use you guys the next time we are in NZ. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

Thanks once again.

Kind regards,
Dùghall macLachlainn”



Imagine an urban environment where everyone lives within half an hour of beautiful beaches, hiking trails and a dozen enchanted holiday islands. Add a sunny climate, a background rhythm of Polynesian culture and a passion for outstanding food, wine and shopping – you’re beginning to get the picture of Auckland.

In the Maori language, Auckland is known as Tamaki-Makau-Rau – ‘the maiden with a hundred suitors’. It earned this name because it was a region coveted by many tribes.

Waiheke Island – Hauraki Gulf

One of the larger Hauraki Gulf islands, Waiheke is just 14 kilometres from the heart of Auckland city. It’s a place that visitors, and the people who are lucky enough to live there, find particularly relaxing.

Home to many of New Zealand’s successful artists, Waiheke has long standing arts and crafts focus. You’ll find a number of galleries and craft outlets in the seaside shopping areas. There are plenty of places to enjoy a good coffee or a taste of New Zealand’s clean, fresh cuisine. And with more than a dozen high-quality vineyards, Waiheke is a wine lover’s delight. Many of the vineyards include relaxing cafe-style restaurants that look out across the vine-covered valleys to the blue sea beyond.

Great Barrier Island

With a permanent population of around 700 this sparsely populated 285 square km island is one of the few untouched and un-spoilt places still remaining in the world.

Great Barrier has the kind of rugged, untouched beauty that appeals to adventurers and that is getting harder and harder to find on our planet. Take your tramping boots, because the magnificent forests are laced with well-formed roads and tracks that lead to secluded natural hot springs and historic Kauri dams. Unsurprisingly, wildlife flourishes here – the island is a haven for rare birds and lizards. Around the coasts, it’s all about endless white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters that offer legendary fishing and diving experiences.

Mercury and Alderman Islands

Great Mercury Island is privately owned by Sir Michael Fay and David Richwhite. The remaining islands in the group are managed by the Department of Conservation, and are popular diving and fishing spots because of its unspoiled coastline, pristine beaches and rich reefs. The owners of the Great Mercury Island are quite reasonable and will allow people on their island as long as some basic rules are followed are protected, landing is prohibited in some locations.

Mercury Islands offer spectacular rock pinnacles, caves and drop-offs in 8-30m visibility, 15 Nm out from Whitianga. The underwater terrain is exceptionally varied throughout the Islands. Never Fail Rock is a popular cave diving area with drop-offs to 37m.

The Aldermans are some 10 Nm offshore where scenic pinnacles and walls drop off to 55m and harbour abundant marine life. Big game fish are often seen along the drop-offs. Dogger Reef, 15m below the surface has a variety of pelagic species in summer and is often visited by sharks. Tairua Reef around 22km offshore has stands of black coral and myriad schools of fish in depths ranging from 9-46m.

Poor Knights Marine Reserve

The Poor Knights Islands were named by Jacques Cousteau as one of the top 10 dive sites in the world. Cousteau would know, and Cousteau was right! Separated from mainland New Zealand, the Poor Knights are influenced by a warm current that originates in the Coral Sea, north of Australia. Water temperature is higher, and visibility significantly greater than in nearby coastal waters.

Tropical and subtropical life forms have become established among the diverse and multiple environments formed by the island’s volcanic origins. Underground caves, tunnels and archways are home to an extraordinary variety seaweeds and dense populations of friendly, colourful fish.

You can expect, the mixture of tropical and subtropical sea life, and the clarity of the water result in an underwater environment that is truly unique on this planet.

Bay Of Islands

The Bay of Islands- Northland has one of the best maritime parks in New Zealand with 144 islands and bays. Marine life includes whales, penguins, dolphins and Fantastic Sports Fishing.

On the East Coast of Northland, Russell, Opua, Paihia, Waitangi & Kerikeri all make up part of the Bay of Islands, a world-renowned tourist destination and the cultural centre of New Zealand. Waitangi is where NZ’s founding document, the Treaty of Waitangi, was signed in 1840. Some of New Zealand’s oldest buildings are found in the Bay of Islands. Desirable Kerikeri is one of NZ’s fastest growing towns and a horticultural hub with significant orchard plantings.

Whangaroa Harbour

Whangaroa Harbour, situated in the far north of New Zealand on the protected East Coast and has without doubt one of the most productive Marlin Fishing grounds in New Zealand. Whangaroa is world renown its spectacular scenery, safe anchorage and for having the largest Striped Marlin in the world……commonly known to most as the Striped Marlin capital of the world. When marlin fishing just 15 minutes from the entrance to the protected harbour, pack attacks are not uncommon.
