High Tea at sea

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Mother’s Day is com­ing up on May 11 and the Voy­ager NZ Mar­itime Mu­seum has some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent for fam­i­lies who love the sea.

Take mum on board the Ted Ashby for the af­ter­noon.

She’ll be greated with a glass of bub­bles and you’ll then set sail for two and a half hours on the Waitem­ata har­bour.

Ted Ashby is a ketchrigged deck scow, typ­i­cal of the fleet of scows that once op­er­ated in north­ern New Zealand wa­ters.

Built by mu­seum staff and vol­un­teers in the tra­di­tional man­ner, she was launched in Au­gust 1993.

Sweet and savoury treats will be served and guests can even en­joy a shoul­der mas­sage while loung­ing on the deck.

There are goodie bags of skin­care and hair prod­ucts to take home too.

The ex­pe­ri­ence is priced at $90 per per­son and runs from 1.30pm to 4pm.
