An amazing sunset cruise... unforgettable

Nga mihi o te tau hou Matariki - thank you to Scott and his team for hosting us aboard the Silver Wave Yacht. An amazing sunset cruise to celebrate Matariki - it really was a take your breath away experience and a very beautiful way for us to celebrate an event that is very close to my heart. Would absolutely recommend for anyone to book in with the Silver Wave team - I guarantee you the experience will be unforgettable. Nga mihi ki a koutou.

It was a great time to unwind with our team...

We hired Silver Wave for our studio's staff party and absolutely loved it! It was a great time to unwind with our team and see more of our backyard. We had plenty of space on the front deck to lounge, share a grazing platter, and pop open some bubbles while getting a salty breeze in our hair. 10/10 recommend for a unique experience in the Bay.
