Sail back in time these school holidays with Ports of Auckland

WHAT: Celebrate our city during this year’s Auckland Heritage Festival with Ports of Auckland. Take a trip back in time on a 90-minute cruise aboard the legendary William C Daldy steam tugboat, one of the port’s first tugs dating back to 1935. These family-friendly tours weave in and out of the port’s wharves and sail under the Auckland Harbour Bridge where the Daldy once famously saved a piece from floating away during construction.

WHEN: 30 September – 1 October, 7-8 & 14-15 October at 10.00am, 12.30pm and 2.30pm.

WHERE: Check-in takes place at the New Zealand Maritime Museum

WHY: Ports of Auckland funds and organises these tours to allow Aucklanders to enjoy a living piece of our maritime heritage. Proceeds from ticket sales going to the William C Daldy Preservation Society, a volunteer organisation that works to keep the Daldy in magnificent shape, and the Ports of Auckland Education Programme, providing Auckland schools with free educational tours of their port.

BOOKINGS: Bookings are essential as tours fill up fast. Visit https://poalheritagesailings.eventbrite.co.nz to book your tour now. Tickets are $10 an adult, $3 a child – those under two sail free!
