Trips & Prices
Currently operating 7 days a week, weather and sea conditions permitting
The Glass Bottom Boat 'Aquador' runs regular trips from the beach at Goat Island Marine Reserve, Leigh, 1hr north of Auckland (click here to view map). The marine reserve has been established for over 39 years and consequently has fish numbers no longer seen anywhere around the New Zealand coast.
Trips run every day, bookings essential, (weather and sea conditions permitting), travelling around the reserve showing passengers the reefs, marine life, caves and seabirds in their natural habitat. A full commentary about the marine life and the marine reserve accompanies all trips which are suited to most ages.
The best viewing conditions are Southerly winds and no onshore swell.
Before you leave home, check the morning boat report, phone on (09) 422 6334. Bookings are advisable to avoid disappointment. Weather premiting.
