Following the Government’s Announcement, Monday 8th June, New Zealand will move to alert level one at 11.59pm Monday 8th June. Here is what this means for our Fullers360 services:

Passenger Capacity

At alert level one we welcome the removal of Ministry of Health restrictions on public transport and can resume carrying our full passenger capacity onboard our vessels. This means we will no longer be operating with 50% passenger capacity and can accept more customers onboard.

Ministry of Health guidelines set out that physical distancing is no longer required at alert level one.

Please continue to arrive early to board your preferred sailing, and if you would like to continue practicing your own physical distancing, avoid peak travel times.


There will be no changes to our current scheduled timetable, we will continue to provide a frequent and resilient service.  For timetable information please visit: fullers.co.nz/covid-19-updates/covid-19-timetables/

Health & Safety

The health and safety of our passengers, and crew, will continue to be a top priority. Our increased cleaning regime and regular disinfecting of vessels, including fogging, will continue. We want to ensure our passengers feel safe while travelling with us.

There is hand sanitizer available on wharves, and onboard vessels, as well as hand soap in the rest rooms. For added safety, our sneeze guards will remain in place at our ticket offices, and onboard cafes. 

At alert level one, physical distancing is no longer a Ministry of Health requirement, however we ask you to please continue to follow the Ministry of Health advice for alert level one outlined here: covid19.govt.nz/alert-system/covid-19-alert-system/#alert-level-1-%E2%80%94-prepare

Personal Responsibility

While travelling with us, it’s important everyone follows the Golden Rules of alert level one, outlined by the Ministry of Health here: transport.govt.nz/about/covid-19/#Goldenrules

If you are unwell, please stay home.

Whilst face masks are not mandatory, if you feel anxious, you’re welcome to wear your own mask onboard our vessels.

Please continue to play your part and follow public health hygiene guidelines: covid19.govt.nz/covid-19/

Contact Tracing

The NZ COVID Tracer app posters will continue to be displayed on the wharves, and onboard our vessels, for those who plan to continue using the contact tracing app to track their movements.

As we all adjust and emerge from restrictions, please continue to be kind and considerate of one another, and our crew.

We look forward to welcoming more customers back on board. See you on the water.
