- Frequently Answered Questions
- Q. What do we get for
our $150.00 per hour?
- A. Lease of a surveyed,
classic charter vessel with qualified skipper + crew.
- Q. How does a typical
3 hour cruise take place?
- A. We leave the birth for
a 5 knot scenic of the Wellington wharfs and a close up of fishing
boats, tugs and container ships in an area that can not be accessed
by the general public. A running commentary through a p.a system
on the history and general information on Wellington Harbour
can be obtained by request. We cruise out for 1hr 15min, then
anchor close to the city views for a BBQ, ceremonies, or dance
for 1hr 15min and then a quick chug home.
- Q. What if we are having
such a great time that we want to extend the cruise?
- A .... no kidding often
asked and wanted by party goers! No problem, if no other bookings
are directly after your charter. Ask about our heavily reduced
rates for over three hours out.
- Q. How do we cater,
are you licensed?
- A. To help keep your costs
to a minimum we let you cater and decide what and how you wish
to dine + drink. We are not licensed but BYO is fine and will
be chilled on ice for you. We pride ourselves on chefing a wicked
BBQ be it a banger on bread or full scale Kebabs,
Salmon fillets, Sirloin steaks and jazzy salads. We provide plates,
cutlery, salad servers, serviettes, sauces, beer & wine glasses
provided with a smile :)

often dont have a head as big and new as whats on 'The
- Q. Whats the music set
up on the ship like?
- A. BIG ! So big we need
a separate generator to run the amps and charge the batteries.
3 way 6``x 9`` Pioneers in each corner of the dance floor and
a massive 1000watt Subwoofer create this kauri planked sound
ship into a league of its own. Simply Impressive! Cds only,
BYO or ships library, extensive selections.
- Q. Foul weather, whats
- A. I tend to hove to at
the wharf in anything over 30knots (65k/ph), 33knots is gale
warning or force. The ship loves it but partying passengers and
wine bottles tend to become airborne on the bumpy bits.
- Skipper is in touch with
client the day before cruise to discuss weather patterns and
to finalise any last minute queries. Star of Wellington is fully
covered so rain is not an issue.
- Q. Where do you pick
up and drop off the passengers?
- A. We are based around
the overseas terminal area next to Te Papa museum. More details
