Nice short cruise
Jan 2021
It is a wharf for Ferry, passenger Ferry not for vehicles. It does the function, facilitates well for the foot traffic to cross Mercury Bay from Whitianga side to the other side, toward Flaxmill Bay. Nice experiences when tourists mingled with locals enjoy the short cruise, 5 - 7 minutes, and then visit the quieter side of Whitianga, the location of Whitianga Rock Walk, a Scenic and Historic Reserve.

Great Ride
Nov 2020
Wonderful way to get from Ferry's Landing to Whitianga. The driver was very nice and helpful. Quick and easy to use. The driver just takes a break between 7:30-8:30 for dinner so plan accordingly. Otherwise the ferry leaves each dock about every 10-15 minutes. Lovely view of Whitianga from on the Ferry.

Excellent service and only a few minute trip across the harbour
Aug 2020
We took the ferry this past weekend for the first time. Good pricing for the few minute trip across the harbour.
Both sides of the harbour and wharves are kept in excellent condition. Very picturesque area. An easy walk to the Whitianga town centre. And on the other side nice walk to Flaxmill Bay and if you want to go further to Shakespeare Cliff scenic area. Well worth a look.

A wharf
Mar 2020
It is a wharf where you catch the ferry across the water or pick up a boat trip. There is nothing remarkable about it, but it does the job for which it was designed. Free parking close by.

just a short trip from Purangi road ferry terminal takes you over to Whitianga saving you a 45minute road trip. A lovely walk around the village

Inexpensive, fun and the people are lovely. Go out to dinner in Whitianga then take a round trip on the ferry afterwards. There's a very cool cemetry on the southern side to visit as well and the cafe there is very ggod.

convenient but too much expensive!
Jan 2020 • Family
we took the ferry from Whitianga to purangi road. good crossing but we paid $7 return/adult+ $3 return per bike (3 bikes)+ $5,5 return/child
total $28,5 for 2 adults,1child and 3 bikes for a 200m cruise!
Be aware that you are going to paid $50/kilometer for an adult!!! convenient but expensive isn't it? are you ready for that?
