About Hauraki Express

We are a family owned and operated start-up business who all share the same love for the sea and in particular the Hauraki Gulf, our home. We are from the Kawau Bay area and have a vision to introduce everyone to the wonders of the Hauraki Gulf. So jump on board, we’ll take you there!
