Tips for travelling with us this summer

Our island destinations are incredibly popular at this time of year with both locals and visitors alike. We’ve put together some tips to help make your trip as smooth and enjoyable as possible:

Arrive early

Especially for trips to Waiheke. We recommend arriving up to 45mins before your desired departure time to avoid missing your first choice sailing.

Expect queues

There may be long lines to board, especially on Waiheke sailings. Please be patient, our staff are working hard to minimise the wait times.

Pre-purchase tickets

Where possible, pre-purchase your tickets online or at one of our ticket offices well before your sailing. This saves you from having to stand in long lines twice. Our tours in particular sell out fast.

Pack your essentials

Remember to bring your sunblock, sun hat, bottled water and any medications you may require for your trip.

Hop on Hop off Explorer Bus

For those travelling to Waiheke, save money and grab your Hop on Hop off bus ticket with your ferry pass. These double decker buses are the best way to get around the island. The buses stop at major landmarks around the island including beaches and the top vineyards.

Are you travelling to Coromandel and Rotoroa?

Please note that these sailings require you to check in prior to boarding. Check-in closes 15mins before your scheduled departure so please give yourself plenty of time.

Happy 30th Birthday, Quickcat!

Join us as we raise a glass to celebrate the vessel responsible for 30 years of voyages between Waiheke Island and Auckland.

If you’re commuting home to Waiheke on Tuesday 28 Feb, Fullers invites you to stay on board Quickcat after the regular 5:30pm sailing from Auckland City. We’ll arrive at Matiatia to allow passengers to disembark, and will welcome additional guests to board from Waiheke Island at approximately 6:10pm. From there enjoy a scenic cruise to Oneroa Bay, where we’ll drop anchor for bubbles and cake!

If you’re interested in attending the celebration, please RSVP at fullers.co.nz/quickcat30

Attendance is by online RSVP only – so we know how big a cake to order! Space is limited, so RSVPs will close at midday on Monday 27 February – unless we reach capacity beforehand.

We look forward to seeing you on board!
