Fullers360 offers a range of fares to provide value and flexibility when travelling between Waiheke and Downtown Auckland. Our fares can be categorised into distinct travelling groups: frequent travelers, residents and commuters; and visitors to Waiheke.
Waiheke Island is both a popular visitor destination, and suburb of Auckland. For frequent ferry users we have designed our fares to provide both value and flexibility with a range of options to suit.
For occasional travel we offer two visitor fares, peak and off-peak tickets. Our off-peak tickets are designed to encourage travel in off-peak times to help manage the flow of passengers. Passengers able to travel off-peak save 50% on peak fares. We also offer discounts on standard return tickets when bought online in advance, giving visitors a variety of choice when planning their travel to Waiheke.
Frequent ferry users
Within our range of ferry fares there are multiple options available to support frequency and provide flexibility. For those who travel with us frequently, we offer value ticket bundles through our range of passes.
For frequent ferry users, the following fares are most suitable:

Fullers360 FlexiPass (10 or 40 trip tickets): A flexible multi-trip option for our Waiheke Island customers.

AT HOP Waiheke monthly pass: Auckland Transport offer a Waiheke monthly pass though their partnership with Fullers360. You will need an AT HOP card to access this price, and this can be purchased directly through AT.

The off-island ticket is designed to provide residents who do not travel regularly with a cost-effective way to get to Auckland without having to buy a multi-trip pass. The off-island return fare is $33.50 for adults, $16.00 for a child and $80 for a family.
