Easy to find at the bottom of Queen Street is the terminal for Fullers ferries which head out to various destinations across the harbour. We caught a ferry out to Waiheke Island and as they leave every half hour it was easy to do. I have also travelled from Auckland CBD over to Devonport and back and to Half Moon... More

Awesome experience. From the vineyards, to the beaches, to the roaming chickens. Everything was a site to see. Absolutely stunning. Memories I will have for the rest of my life. If you are vacationing in Auckland, i highly recommend making the short 30-40minute ferry ride to check it out.

For a modest price, this package was perfect for a day trip to nearby Waiheke Island. The deal includes return ferry service commencing at the 10:00 am trip (our party arrived early to the ferry terminal and we departed on the 9:30 trip) with a large tour bus greeting the arrival of the ferry at Matiatia Bay to commence the...

Our tour guide was very informative. I... More

A whistle stop tour of the island with interesting information, we left the tour at its most northern point as its includes a bus pass which allows you to take your time returning to the ferry.

We had the most wonderful trip to Waiheke Island on Fullers Ferry. It is certainly worth the effort to go across to the island. The ferry is extremely clean and prompt.
