Join the Hawke's Bay Express for a stylishly memorable experience of the world's Art Deco Capital, Napier.

In all her custom designed splendour, the Express will take you on your tour in style with Dock to dock service. Our informative and witty commentary outlines the history of the 1931 earthquake and the city's Art Deco rebuild. You will gain insight into the region's work force, economy and society with personal stories from the fifth generation Hawke's Bay family owners.

Experience the Express!

We are often fully booked out so cruise passengers need to book through their cruise ship's website or once on board with the shore excursions team.
