  • We hired Wasting Light (Cruisetime) for a special celebration event for our Senior Leadership Team.

    We enjoyed great food (and drinks of course), service and had a wonderful overall experience. Have to mention the boat itself and the on-board and on-water activities as particularly sensational too!

    The Wasting Light team certainly went to great lengths to make the event memorable and unique for us. Couldn’t recommend them more!

  • Continental Cars Ferrari chartered ‘Wasting Light’ in December 2016 with a group of International VIP’s for an afternoon lunch cruise.

    The hospitality of the crew was fantastic and every element of the charter was well planned out and executed. From the food and beverage to the skipper’s knowledge and expertise, we were thoroughly impressed with the entire package. Our guests were well looked after and enjoyed every minute on-board. Continental Cars would have no hesitation in using CruiseTime charters in the future should the opportunity arise.

    We thank you for an excellent voyage and unforgettable experience on the Hauraki Gulf

  • Our team from Panasonic thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon aboard Wasting Light. The crew provided effortless 5 star service, the cuisine was exceptional and the vessel of the very highest quality.

    I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending WL to any prospective company looking for that unique experience afloat.

  • This is just a quick note to say THANK YOU for arranging such an amazing day on Sunday for my 30th.

    We couldn’t have picked a better day weather-wise, and the attentiveness of Bevan, Sasha and the rest of the crew was beyond all expectations.

    The boat itself is stunning. From the exceptionally maintained interior to outside, the boat is obviously well looked after. We had a lot of fun playing with the stand-up paddle board and jumping off the boat into the water. The sound system is incredible, although I have to apologise to the crew for having to deal with a few “suspect” songs.

    Bevan did an amazing job finding a quiet spot to anchor down in. He is a fantastic captain and you should be proud to have him as part of the CruiseTime team.
