Auckland is a great place Brian will give you 25 challenges to do while here!!.
Climb an extinct volcano - here in Auckland harbour, ferry to wonderful islands, jump off the Skytower (or maybe not!), borrow our bikes and ride the waterfront (better than San francisco even) view gannet (large seabirds) nesting colonies,and the underground aquarium where they are breeding King Penguins on the ice- and much much more
We also have a 37' cruising sailing catamaran and we can take you sailing for day trips or longer. I live to go sailing - please join me!!!
