Well run efficient modern ferry fleet

The Fuller ferries handle much of the ferry traffic business in downtown Auckland. They are cost effective, run often and are easy to use. We wer imprssed on two trips we took.

We went to Waiheke Island and didn't really find any other way of getting there, hence price is quite high. Boat comfortable enough even though crossing was quite rough for us - it serves drink and snacks and they are reasonably priced Waiheke Island is worth a visit but that is another review - we did it ourselves with the...

Really there is no better ferry ride than the one from Auckland or Devonport to Waiheke Island. it's always on time and seldom bumpy even in a big sea. One can opt for fresh air of cozy interior with great views; you'll be there before you know it. Waiheke Island stretches before you - a quick lunch, a brisk walk... More

Ferry runs to places like Waiheke, Devonport from Auckland. Good service and enjoyable rides available every 30 minutes (as I remember and check their website anyway).

Our group had most of the day to kill before our flights in the evening so we went to the harbor to see about going on a quick excursion. The customer service person recommended a ferry over to Devonport. She was friendly and helpful. It was a great recommendation, we enjoyed our time there and the ferry ride was smooth... More

Arrived early for our ferry only to miss it by staff not changing information boards and calling passengers. No refund available as we had previously booked back in the UK. Otherwise very efficient with good commentary of the tours.

Nice relaxing Auckland Harbor cruise and lovely views looking across to the Harbor Bridge, Auckland and Marina's and the Auckland skyline. The ferries were very comfortable and service was good.

Our ship's tour booked tickets on this ferry service to get to Waiheke island for a winery tour. Embarkation was smooth, the trip was scenic on a beautiful day, and arrival was uncomplicated - with convenient bus parking at the terminal. Embarkation for the return trip was similar; the terminal in Auckland is located in the heart of town. Would... More
