Our vessel survey season is well underway, and the majority of vessels have had their annual checks in time for the busy summer season ahead.

Our brand new vessel Torea has arrived in Auckland, and you’ll start to see her on the Waiheke runs where she’ll join Te Kotuku and Korora after she’s been blessed and commissioned this week. 


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.
