We go one month after you! Try checking this web site for averages for the time you are there:

I hope you can copy and paste those.
We are also looking at a few specific tours. I am one of a party of six and we are trying to decide what we can do on our own and what we must do thru RCI. The RCI tours seem MUCH more expensive than the actual costs as listed, say, on line.
Since you will be home before we have to leave, please try to give us a post with any tips and favorite tours when you get back. I will watch this site or you may e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Are you going a day early to Auckland? We are.
