Ports of Auckland is proud to present 90-minute cruises aboard the iconic William C Daldy steam tugboat during this year's Auckland Heritage Festival.

Join us in celebrating the rich maritime heritage of Auckland City and explore the Waitematā Harbour from the 82-year-old Daldy; one of the port's first tugs built in 1935. These family-friendly tours will cruise through the port's wharves at work and under the Auckland Harbour Bridge where the Daldy once famously saved a piece from floating away during its construction.

Discover the boat at your leisure, from the bustling engine room below to the wheelhouse up top. Each cruise will be accompanied by a detailed commentary on Auckland's maritime history.

Proceeds from ticket sales will go to the William C Daldy Preservation Society, a group of volunteers who keep the Daldy afloat for Aucklanders to enjoy. A portion will also go to the Ports of Auckland Education Programme which helps subsidise the cost of transport for schools visiting the city to take one of the port's free, year-round school boat tours.
