Port Tours

Ever wondered what it takes to keep the shops full of the things you want and need, and get exports overseas quickly? Well, take one of our boat tours of the port and find out!

These hour-long tours weave in and out of the busy commercial wharves to give you a close-up look at the big ships, cranes and other machinery at work, accompanied by a detailed commentary

Our School Holiday Tours are open to the public and can only be booked through 360 Discovery in downtown Auckland or by calling 09 307 8005. Bookings are essential. If your group is of 15 people or more, please email and they will do their best to accommodate you. Tickets for these tours are $5 per adult and free for children under the age of 16. Proceeds from ticket sales go towards our Ports of Auckland Education Programme, helping to subsidise the cost of travel into Auckland city for school groups visiting the port.

Our School Group Tours run throughout the school term and are open to educational groups only. Tours for school groups can booked through the New Zealand Maritime Museum by calling +64 9 373 0800 or emailing Our school tours are suitable for students of all ages.
