We travelled with this and other ferry companies, (perhaps all owned by the same parent company), and found them all very good. Fullers ferries were clean, modern, easy to move around and the staff more than willing to provide excellent service and answer any questions.

the staff on board is always helpful and you can save money by purchasing AT HOP Card or monthly pass or day pass. The ferry has onboard cafe and wifi.

As we are all over 65- we paid for hopcards which gave us a free ferry and buses- great trip on the ferry, it was very full, smooth on/off - stressless

Ferry was your standard and what you would expect. We took it to Waiheke Island. Ferry was on time and schedule for both rides to and from Auckland. The city view from the water is worth the trip itself!

Yes the ferry is very accommodating as you can sit on top or inside out of the weather. Our experience was very pleasant a little windy on top but a smooth ride out and back.
