Happy 30th Birthday, Quickcat!

Join us as we raise a glass to celebrate the vessel responsible for 30 years of voyages between Waiheke Island and Auckland.

If you’re commuting home to Waiheke on Tuesday 28 Feb, Fullers invites you to stay on board Quickcat after the regular 5:30pm sailing from Auckland City. We’ll arrive at Matiatia to allow passengers to disembark, and will welcome additional guests to board from Waiheke Island at approximately 6:10pm. From there enjoy a scenic cruise to Oneroa Bay, where we’ll drop anchor for bubbles and cake!

If you’re interested in attending the celebration, please RSVP at

Attendance is by online RSVP only – so we know how big a cake to order! Space is limited, so RSVPs will close at midday on Monday 27 February – unless we reach capacity beforehand.

We look forward to seeing you on board!
