RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
All aboard the legendary Steinlager2 or Lion NZ for a short and sharp yacht race around the beautiful Auckland city harbour! In the company of an expert crew, you'll race against other yachts around the inner harbour as part of the Royal NZ Yacht Squadron Rum Race.
Join the crew on a Friday afternoon for a spot of yacht racing around the sparkling Auckland city harbour! You'll board either the world-famous Steinlager2 or Lion NZ and participate in the Royal NZ Yacht Squadron Rum Race, a fun 2-3 hour social race against other yachts in Waitemata Harbour. Feel free to get involved in all the sailing action or simply sit back and watch the boat and crew do their thing. It's the perfect way to wind down from a busy week.
Minimum of 14 participants will be required for the Rum Race sailing to go ahead. If minimum numbers aren't reached, you'll be transferred to another date.
Meet family and friends at one of the many bars and restaurants in the Viaduct afterwards!
It is very rare for racing to be cancelled - sailing takes place in all weather. However, for the safety of the crew and guests, cancellation of sailing is ultimately the responsibility of the skipper. Should this happen, you'll be transferred to the next suitable availability.
Please make sure to bring a jacket, warm clothes and closed shoes.
If you have had flu like symptoms in the 14 days before the sail please call us. If you have been exposed to someone with Covid-19 or at a location of interest within the 14 days before the sail, please call us.
This experience takes place in Auckland.
