After cruising through Fjorland National Park, Whangarei and Auckland hold even more delightful surprises. Whangarei, New Zealand’s northernmost city, is famed for its diving at nearby Knights Island, off Tutukaka. In fact, Jacques Cousteau rated it one of the top ten dive sites in the world. Prefer to keep your head above water? The Town Basin is ideal for people-watching with its yachts, restaurants and shops. Lively Auckland is home to Victoria Park Market and Viaduct Harbour but the real gem is a 40-minute ferry ride to Waiheke Island. Think of it as the Hamptons of New Zealand – a paradise of beaches, wineries and famed rolling green hills.
Unique ports of call include Whangarei and Lyttelton.
