Discover New Zealand’s seafaring history at the Maritime Museum on Auckland’s waterfront. Explore the themed galleries to find out how the first Polynesians got here, experience the hardships the first European settlers faced, and be inspired by our modern day maritime heroes.

Along the way you can try your hand at yacht design, relax in a kiwi style bach, hear the cannon fire and test your sea legs in the rocking cabin.

Learn more about NZ’s most famous maritime pioneer Sir Peter Blake, find out what it takes to win the America’s Cup, and see if you’ve got the skills to crew a race yacht with our team challenge.

There’s plenty of opportunity to get out on the water too. Our heritage vessel Ted Ashby sets out six days a week taking you on a one hour voyage. Or you can experience life on a tall ship with half and full day sailings in the Hauraki Gulf on tall ship BREEZE. Enjoy great views of the city skyline and the iconic Auckland Harbour Bridge as you navigate the sparkling water of the Waitemata Harbour and Hauraki Gulf.
