Auckland Shore Excursion: West Coast Wineries Tour

About this activity
After you've docked in port, your Auckland shore excursion begins with a meet and greet at your pickup location -- Prince's Wharf or Queens Wharf - from where you'll enjoy a drive by comfortable minibus through Auckland's city center and western suburbs to the West Coast wine region.
If you've selected the morning tour option, you'll stop on the way to look out over the magnificent Muriwai black-sand beach on the wild Tasman Sea coast, and then take a short walk to the popular Takapu gannet colony, where you can get an up-close look at these large sea birds and take advantage of great photo ops. If you've chosen the afternoon tour option, you'll visit an additional winery instead.
At both a large established winery and a smaller boutique label, taste a range of New Zealand’s wines, from chardonnay to pinot noir to Bordeaux-style. During your guided winery visits (either two or three, depending on option selected), you'll also discover why the West Auckland region is known for its wide-ranging varieties of wines, made from grapes grown in such world-famous wine areas as the South Island’s Marlborough and Central Otago, and the North Island’s Hawke’s Bay and Gisborne.
Your trip back to the Auckland port takes you along the Tasman Sea for fabulous views of this wild, rugged coastline. You'll then arrive back at the waterfront in time to re-board your ship.

This was a post cruise excursion to see sights outside of Auckland and visit wineries. John, our guide, was very friendly and informative. We first went to the northern coast to see the the Tasman Sea, the Muriwai black sand beach, and the Takapu gannet colony. John provided great commentary on what we were seeing. Then we were off to visit two wineries for tasting. John selected two excellent wineries and were received a broad selection of great local wines to taste.
