These tickets were cheaper than paying at the ticket office.

These tickets were cheaper than paying at the ticket office. Collecting the tickets was a breeze. The boat was prompt and fairly quick. The scenery on the way was stunning. Toilets and other facilities on board. Waiheke Island itself was amazing and a must-go!

My husband and I were visiting from Australia and caught the ferry to Waiheke Island. We had cappuccinos that were amazing and the staff were friendly. The ferry was on time and the seats were very comfortable, the staff made sure our trip was very comfortable.
