heading to Coromandel

discover the coromandel


Just a short 2 hour cruise from downtown Auckland and with its unique character and laid-back lifestyle, the Coromandel Peninsula offers attractions to suit everyone whether you’re visiting just for the day or longer.

There is always something to see and do, including the  Driving Creek Railway and Potteries, the Waterworks, beautiful landscape attractive to walkers and cyclists, and of course the friendly Coro-style hospitality offering fresh local seafood and catering for all tastes.

Stop by one of the nearby stunning beaches (Whangapoua Beach, New Chums Beach, Hot Water Beach, Kuaotunu, Whitianga) for family swimming and picnics. For a bit more of an adventure, stay longer and explore Cathedral Cove, Hot Water Beach, Coromandel’s most famous attractions or the remote splendour of the Northern Coromandel.

Pier 1, Downtown Ferry Terminal – New Ticket Office Development

Building works starting Tuesday 22 August 2017

A new ticket office is being built on Pier 1 at Downtown Ferry Terminal. Work starts on Tuesday 22 August and it’s expected that work will be completed by late September.

The new ticket office will be shared by both Fullers and Auckland Transport, transforming it into both an AT Metro Customer Service Centre and a Fullers Ticket Office. Until it’s built, our ticket office will be temporarily be moved to a new site inside Pier 1 (directly opposite its current location) and it’ll be business as usual for our customers.

During this time we strongly recommend that ferry tickets are pre-purchased in advance to avoid any disruption to your day. You can also purchase Fullers paper tickets online at fullers.co.nz, via the MyFerry App and on board most vessels. We’ll also be extending our ticket office hours at Devonport until 8.30pm Monday to Sunday while work is being carried out.

Auckland Transport are working with the contractors to minimise any impact to customers and we appreciate your understanding during this time.


Devonport Customer Communications - Kea Out Of Service

In July, Kea was taken out of service for urgent repairs which have required her to remain out of operation. Access to a slipway has proven extremely difficult resulting in further delays. A slipway has now become available enabling us to undertake the repairs whilst at the same time allowing us to carry out her annual survey. During this time Cap Surfer and TiriKat will be the main vessels for the Devonport service until Kea returns in mid to late September.
