Took the Haiheke Ferry and went on the wine tour which was booked as part of the Ferry cost. Well organised and visit to the wineries worked very well. The bus driver was friendly and helpful and provided excellent commentary. Overall a nice day and a very pleasant way to see the Gulf

We sailed around Waiheke Island and the inner gulf taking in Rangitoto Island, Pine Harbour, Coromandel and back to Waiheke. We really live in a fabulous piece of Paradise and would hate to see it destroyed. The weather was stunning with bright sunshine and warm water all the way.If you ever get the opportunity to sail in this part of the world than I highly recommend it.

We journeyed over on a Fuller cruise at 11:00AM. On a warm day, enjoy the weather from the top deck. We paid a small sum to ride the local bus, which made for an interesting adventure. Definitely arrange for some type of transportation since the island is too large to walk safely around. You can rent a bike but be prepared for hills! We found the bus to be affordable and reliable. Visited two beaches on the island, filled with bi-valve shells. Also stopped at Stonyridge Wineries. Magnificent place to enjoy some wines. We made it back to Auckland on the 4:45pm ferry, so, plan for at least 4-5 hours on the island. More if you like wine!

We had a fantastic safari and saw so an incredible amount of wildlife, we were blessed to cruise with a pod of 300 dolphins and spent about 45 minutes with 3 whales, including a Bryde's whale, native to the Hauraki Gulf, that came right up to the boat. Magic!
