Very smooth sailing on these ferries

Because these are catamarans, they provide a very smooth sailing experience. Also, they are a very good value for money

Second to the Sky Tower but better for those suffering from vertigo. We did the trip to Devonport (a delightful, civilised and quieter break from the city). Inexpensive and short enough for those who are not so good at sea.

Great on time ferries at a good price. All of the ferries that we were on were on-time and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful.

The crew onboard were polite and had a lot of patience for our 3yr old grand daughter who was caught up in the experience.

The day after we arrived in New Zealand, we took the Auckland harbour cruise . It was a lovely experience with a great commentary from the skipper. Tea/coffee and cakes were supplied within the cost of the tickets which was great. The cruise was calm and I felt very safe.Loved the view of Auckland skyline from the harbour too.

I travelled to Waiheke for the sculpture walk. The ferry I was planning to travel on was already full before it even landed at the wharf. I had to wait an hour in long queues to get on the next one. Staff said it will be here in 5 minutes but it was nearly an hour before I actually got... More

We took a boat trip across to the main Island from Auckland. Quick 30 min trip on the ferry which had plenty of seats and was a quick ride.

We used Fullers Ferries to reach Devonport and Waiheke Island. Both trips were well organised and comfortable.
