The options

The easiest way to get to Waiheke from Downtown Auckland is by ferry. Fullers Ferries operate a 9am sailing departing downtown which is a good time for both starting your day stress-free and still be walking before 10am on Waiheke. Tickets can be purchased online or at the ferry terminal (allow extra time for this). For tickets, prices and timetables visit:
