Auckland Explorer Optare Spectra ERQ751
By March 2013 the Auckland Explorer was in the hands of Ritchies and an Optare Spectra doubledecker had been acquired to operate on the service. The bus was formerly Anglan Bus 501 (YJ56ASZ) new in 2006. The UK livery conveniently needed no modification for use on the tour. The bus is seen departing the Ferry Terminal.

The Optare Spectra was still going strong in November 2017, though its days were numbered. It had been given a repaint from the Anglan Bus scheme and Gray Line branding.
