Our day began at Pier 4. It was slightly overcast, but plenty mild for a chartered boat excursion on the harbor.
It was day one of five in Auckland, and we wasted no time getting familiar. The afternoon was perfect. We hired a boat for the day and treated ourselves to some leisure fun in the sun. It didn't take long before margarita's were flowing and burgers and "guac"served. Yes, we had a BBQ Auckland-style—on the water, in a boat. With such an active bay and beautiful coastline we chose to make the most of our time in town. It was a day well spent.
