Ferry from Coromandel

Hello! I've seen a few postings mentioning a ferry from Coromandel to Waiheke but cannot find an actual service. We will be traveling in January and can squeeze in a little more if we can go Rotorua to Coromandel to Waiheke to Auckland and flight out of Auckland.

It's not a car ferry. If you drive from Rotorua to Coromandel, there's no rental car return places there. What will you do with your car?

You really are best to drive yourselves from Rotorua to the Coromandel, before driving up to Auckland for a possible side-trip to Waiheke on the passenger ferry from downtown, Ferry Building, or on the car and foot passenger ferry from Half Moon Bay marina in Pakuranga, Auckland.

Would be very time-consuming otherwise without a rental car from Rotorua to Coromandel Town, using Intercity bus services.
