Waiheke Island reviews

  • "An efficient ferry service"

    Your booking clerk Emily Fisher was extremely kind and efficient in guiding me to book the ferry passage that suited my timetable. The staff 'on the ground' at Half Moon Bay were very positive and guided my car skilfully onto the ferry just as it was about to depart, so I was 'last on, first off', which was fun! The only stressful part was driving through miles of urban sprawl from the airport to Half Moon Bay with hardly any signposts or directions to guide me.
