STANLEY BAY TRAVEL ALERT: TUES 28 MARCH

Unfortunately, due to mechanical issues all Stanley Bay ferry services have been cancelled this morning, Tuesday 28 March 2017.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.


Orapiu Wharf – temporary closure

Over the past 4 months Orapiu Wharf has been partially closed due to the steps and boarding platforms requiring repair. We’ve continued operating our service by utilising the front face of the wharf, but this has come with many challenges.
Due to safety concerns for both our crew and passengers, we’ve made the decision to suspend services to the wharf until repairs are made.
Auckland Transport will undertake repairs and have advised they’ll endeavour to have these completed in order for the wharf to be operational prior to Easter.

We understand that Orapiu is a vital link for residents on Waiheke Island for travel to and from Coromandel, and apologise for the inconvenience this may cause you. During the time of this temporary closure, passengers will need to depart from downtown Auckland. 

 

If you have travel booked departing from Orapiu please contact 360 Discovery on 09 307 8005.
