the harbour cruise was good but the booking system is bad that we missed the original time for the cruise due to overbooking and wrong signage.

The ferry was comfortable, quick and accommodating as they held it for us to run to catch it and not have to wait a further 1/2 hour! A calm trip both ways although wrap up as it could be a little cool.

The ferries are well run and on time. This is an inexpensive way to sightsee outside the city and to see a bit of the Hauraki Gulf.

Question for those of you who have used Fullers to visit the various islands... If you had one day to sail from Auckland and visit an island, which island would it be and why? I'm having a hard time discerning which is the best fit for my wife and I. We primarily enjoy a varied experience of "exploring" and "seeing the sites." Thanks

Waiheke island without any doubt. It has the greatest variety of experiences so the best for a one day visit. Food and wine are it's strengths. Rangitoto for a walking experience and Tiritiri Matangi for a nature experience. More
Many thanks for your review - could you advise where you would recommend parking as we are planning on staying over at Waiheke Island for a few nights and want to leave our car at Devonport? Thanks
