We have some exciting news for you – Fullers360 is all set to welcome summer with a full suite of products and services in time for Labour Weekend.
Our new summer initiatives include:
Rotoroa Island and Coromandel services back on stream
We’re thrilled to be resuming our popular Auckland-to-Rotoroa and Auckland-to-Coromandel services starting Friday 23 October, for the first time since 23 March. Please check the timetable before travelling with us: https://www.fullers.co.nz/timetables-and-fares/.
New tour products for Waiheke
We’re launching 2 new exciting summer products on Waiheke Island: Summer Wine & Dine and Waiheke Explorer Plus, designed to appeal to both residents and visitors alike.
Summer Wine & Dine offers premium lunch or dinner options for customers looking for an affordable, all-inclusive service package on Waiheke Island. The Waiheke Explorer Plus tour offers a variety of lunch options or a wine tasting option for customers in addition to a one-day Explorer bus pass.
Both these products have been designed to make the Island more accessible and to encourage more kiwis to explore their own backyard.
Self-service kiosks and a new booking engine
Alongside our other ticketing options, we’re trialling self-service kiosks on Pier 2 of the Auckland Downtown Ferry Terminal until the end of January 2021. The kiosks provide self-service options to our customers to reduce and prevent queuing on the wharf at peak times, and enable them with the option of purchasing tickets on the wharf at any time of the day or to renew their commuter pass options easily & quickly. See more information on the self-service kiosks here.
Fullers360 is also launching a brand-new booking engine on the website, which will enable customers with an option to purchase ferry tickets and Waiheke accommodation combined as a ‘sail and stay’ package via the Fullers360 website. One of its objectives is to assist in extending the average stay of visitors to Waiheke Island. The booking engine is a pilot project and its success will be reviewed in March 2021. This activity is in addition to the already operational Waiheke Summer timetable announced on 19th October, where we added 86 additional services for our Waiheke passengers.
We are thrilled to launch these new products and services, reinvigorated to make the Hauraki Gulf as accessible as possible for all New Zealanders and encourage domestic visitation to the Gulf’s treasured destinations.
See you on the water.
