About Us

Abalone Cruises operate alongside The Red Boats on the Auckland Harbour and provide Harbour tours, transfers, Cruises, Charter / Party boats, for any group or individual from Westhaven Auckland.

We are a Family owned Company founded by Captain Terry Somers as Kaipara Harbour Cruises over 20 years ago.

The Company has now grown to 5 Vessels on 2 different Harbours, with the acquisition of Abalone Cruises Auckland over 15 years ago.

Terry Somers is now joined by his son Andrew, who has purchased the Auckland Company, and runs the Vessels alongside his Father making Abalone Cruises a second generation Company.

Abalone Cruises, The Red Boats and Kaipara Harbour tours are still fully owner operated by our Family, and offers many years of cruising experience to make your charter a huge success

Departing from Z Pier - Westhaven Marina, Abalone Cruises have 4 vessels waiting to take passengers anywhere on Auckland's Waitamata Harbour.
