Groups & Events

Explore has been offering charter options since introducing our America's Cup Sailing experience to Auckland in 1999. Since then we have continued to expand our vessel fleet, destinations and experiences to offer truly unique options for groups and events.

We operate our sail and power fleet in Auckland and across the Hauraki Gulf, as well as in the Bay of Islands including our island destination Otehei Bay.

Our professional team can provide a complete solution from a small group activity to a large multi-dimensional event incorporating transport, catering and entertainment.

Most importantly we will make the process simple and deliver a memorable experience.
