America's Cup Sailing Experience

A unique opportunity to participate as crew on an actual America's Cup yacht.

Take the helm, exert energy on the grinders or simply sit back and enjoy the action as we sail the beautiful Waitemata Harbour.

Feel the thrill of the wind in your face as you tack and jibe. Experience the excitement of sailing, no experience necessary.

The America's Cup is the world's oldest and most prestigious sporting trophy and ultimate yachting regatta. Usually the domain of billionaires and elite professional yachties, our America's Cup yachts offer the unique opportunity for everyone to participate in sailing on these grand-prix racing machines.

Must be 10 years and over. Wear flat soled footwear, have sunscreen, a hat and jacket.

NOTE: Discount bookings are Non Transferable and Non refundable.

Adult $190.00
Child $135.00

Location

  • Please report to the Explore kiosk 15 minutes prior to departure, located inside Auckland's Viaduct Harbour at the end of Quay St, diagonally across from the entrance to the New Zealand Maritime Museum.

Grinding on the Bay

Hard work and great fun a day of grinding on the Bay. Crew is fantastic, if you have the opportunity join the Saturday afternoon session, this is a race between two of them.

This is one of the best experiences ever! What a way to spend time on the Waitemata! The crew are fantastic, youeven get to have a go at a few things and ask lots of questions about the upcoming America’s Cup in Auckland. Smooth, exciting sailing, on a real AC boat :)

Great day out

One of the best 2 hours I have had out on the sea. The staff were so good at getting us to do most of the sailing, hoisting sails, grinding and even skippering the yacht. It's a must to try this out in Auckland. I will do it again.
