Pre-book your ferry tickets online and be sure to arrive at the downtown ferry terminal at least 15 minutes before your scheduled sailing. Walk up bookings will not be accepted.
Remember, conservation islands are protected by DOC and have strict biosecurity measures in place. Keep up to date with what you can and can’t take with you, here.
There will be a minimum number of bookings required for each sailing, if that minimum number isn’t met the sailing will be cancelled. Customers will be notified by phone and/or email no later than 8pm the evening prior to departure.
If a sailing is cancelled due to the minimum passenger number not being met, customers will have the option of receiving a full refund or rebooking their trip on another date*.
Recreational travel to Waiheke Island is still not permitted. You may only travel to Waiheke Island for recreation if you are a resident on the island.
Sailings will be operating with reduced capacity onboard to enable physical distancing.
Passengers must follow usual COVID-19 government guidance – scan in using the NZ COVID Tracer app, maintain physical distance, wear a face mask or covering inside ferry terminals and onboard and if you’re feeling unwell stay home.
Onboard cafes remain closed and the consumption of your own food and beverage onboard is discouraged, please wait until after your journey with us.
Sailing safely continues to be a top priority for Fullers360 throughout all alert levels. Vessels are regularly and thoroughly cleaned with increased cleaning on hard surfaces and inside shared facilities such as onboard toilets as well as the usual fogging regime across the fleet.
