New Zealand offers some of the best cruising and golf courses in the world. Join our 7 Day/6 Night cruise that includes the best of both on our luxury 10 cabin small ship, the Island Passage. This exceptional holiday is only available to 20 fortunate people and begins and ends in Auckland.

Onboard the Island Passage we offer private luxury en-suite accommodation and chef prepared meals daily. The championship golf courses we are visiting include 18 holes golf fees, motorised carts and helicopter transfers to three of the four courses. We will be cruising in the famous Bay Of Islands waters where you will have free use of our three seven metre tenders on-board which can be used for snorkelling, kayaking, beachcombing, swimming or sport fishing trips. This trip includes all sport fishing equipment (including lures) plus assistance from our expert fishing and onboard guides.

Day 1 - Arrive in Auckland

After arriving in Auckland we greet you at the airport to transfer you to where you will be staying tonight - the Sebel Suites, located in Auckland's Viaduct harbour. Today you have time to explore the area, filled with restaurants, entertainment and cafes.

Day 2 - Gulf Harbour Country Club (B)

After breakfast, we pick you up and take you to your first helicopter flight with us. The 12 minute scenic flight takes you over the northern beaches and onto the Gulf Harbour Country Club where we land right next to the 1st tee.

Gulf Harbour Country Club - Rated by most critics to be in the top five clubs in the country, it features spectacular finishing holes, rolling terrain, ocean views, and classic, traditional values. This 6,400 metre, par 72 golf course is an experience that is truly world-class.

On completion of your round, your helicopter will take you back to your accommodation in Auckland.

Day 3 - Titirangi Golf Club (B,D)

A hearty breakfast will be served before we helicopter out to West Auckland, to play the 18 holes at Titirangi Golf Club.

Titirangi Golf Club - Not only does this club have a long history of hosting great players from all over the world, it has also been the best venue for many international tournaments including the New Zealand Open Championship. The course measures just over 6,025 metres, and ranks as one of New Zealand's top courses offering a genuine challenge to all golfers.
Your coach transfer will be at the club after you finish, with your luggage from Sebel Suites. We make our way to Auckland Airport for a short, yet scenic flight up to the Bay of Islands to board your luxury cruse. This evening you will be welcomed with a delicious chef cooked meal, and time to get to know your home away from home over the next 4 nights.

Day 4 - Kauri Cliffs (B,D)

Wake up in the beautiful scenery of the Bay of Islands and enjoy a fully cooked breakfast prepared by the chef. Take the helicopter to the Kauri Cliffs and play 18 holes at one of the world's most famous golf courses. The par 72 championship golf course has a size of 6,510 meters and provides  five sets of tees to serve every skill level. 15 holes view the Pacific Ocean, six of them along the seaside cliffs. The  inland holes wind through marsh, farmland and forests. 4000 acres of stunning rolling coastal land close to the Matauri Bay, Kauri Cliffs were constructed to make a fluid transition with the natural features of the landscape.

Carrington Golf Club - Even though the golf course is set along the ocean side it gives the impression of an 'inland golf course', complete with rolling hills, vales and natural water hazards. I measures 6,417 metres in length, par 72 and embraces various terrains including rolling vales and tricky water holes. The course is designed to suit golfers of all levels and offers a great variety of hole play.
