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.


Gulf Harbour Service Update

Yesterday Discovery 3 finished refueling at 5.30pm and had an issue with a starter motor.

We immediately arranged a bus to replace the 5.45pm service, however because of the short time frame this meant we were only able to get a bus at approximately 6.00pm.

Shortly after this a temporary repair was made to Discovery 3 and we made the decision to relocate the vessel to Gulf Harbour to minimise crew working hours. Overnight we replaced the starter motor and she was back in service this morning.

We apologise for the inconvenience this disruption may have caused you.

Kind regards,

360 Discovery Team
