Glide out to sea for a wedding with a difference. Here are the best reasons to choose a wedding cruise for your special day.
A unique wedding day
No two wedding cruises are the same. As you cruise the Hauraki Gulf, the views around you are ever-changing – one minute you’re passing a tiny island, the next you’re watching seabirds skim low over the waves or drinking in a glorious sunset. And with a myriad of different route options, we can help you create an absolutely original day. Have your ceremony on our sundeck at a peaceful and scenic spot, or choose to step ashore on a secluded island for a beach wedding ceremony.
The romance of the sea
From your first breath of fresh sea air, you’ll feel that magical sensation that the sea evokes in every free spirit. Every wedding cruise is an adventure never to be forgotten. Out on the water you’ll have uninterrupted views of the beautiful islands that dot the gulf, and as night falls, watch the sunset and drink it all in with your beloved by your side.
A private wedding venue
On a boat, you can get away from it all. Say your vows in a sheltered cove or out at sea on our beautiful sundeck – either way you’ll love the feeling that you and your loved ones are the only people around.
It’s a destination wedding – but hassle-free!
An overnight wedding cruise has the exotic feel of a destination wedding, but without the passport woes and extra costs! As soon as you step on board you’re escaping the cares and stresses of daily life. Swim, kayak and snorkel with your guests, dance the night away with only the ocean to hear you and enjoy the comfort of your onboard accommodation. The next morning, relive all the excitement over breakfast, before our friendly crew bring you safely back to port – it couldn’t be easier.
Stunning wedding photos
Your photographer will be spoilt for choice during your wedding cruise, thanks to the ever-changing natural beauty around you, from gems of islands to wildlife and wide-open panoramic sea views. Hold your bridal party photo shoot on board, or slip away in our run-about boat to have your pictures taken on the beach – either way your photos will be absolutely unique and a wonderful reminder of your wedding day. And yes, you’re free to do the ‘Titanic pose’ if you like... but there are so many more possibilities!
