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:

Transport around the island

Most walks start at the Matiatia Ferry terminal to accommodate those coming across from the city. We provide transport from here to the start of your walk (if required) and back again after your walk - this cost is included in your walk price and organized by iWalkWaiheke. (With the exception of the Mudbrick winery classic 1 day walk which finishes at Mudbrick). If you arrive at the Sealink terminal, or by plane or helicopter, you will need to make your own way to the Matiatia Ferry Terminal to start your walk. Contact us and we can help you arrange this. Transport to and from Waiheke Island is not included in your walk price. Most tickets can be booked as open dated returns. We recommend Fullers 9am service from downtown Auckland.
