Coromandel from Auckland and on to Rotorua without a car

I understand that there is a ferry that stops at Orapiu on Waiheke island and continues on to Coromandel? Is this correct? If so, it seems like a nicer way to get there than a long bus trip. After 3 days in town, I plan to catch intercity to

Rotorua. I all looks easy enough but sometimes things ar not what they seem, hence my question.

many thanks.....

Hi, yes you are correct. The ferry stops briefly at Waiheke and then on to Coromandel Town. Bus trip from the wharf into town. Check out the website below and click on Discoveries and Experiences > Coromandel. Trip is 2 hours and about Canadian $45.92 per adult one way. Since you are probably leaving at 7:30 in the morning, there are tours organised by the same company. See

I don't think that there's a better way.

Many thanks. It looks like I'll be fiishing up on Waiheke now, thus arriving from Coromandel instead of Auckland. Sounds much bettr than a long bus ride with transfers,]. Yay.

It is a great ferry ride and the tour is worth doing as well if you have time, I loved the little railway through the forest!
