Waiheke island is just a 35-minute trip by Fullers fast ferry from downtown Auckland, or 45 minutes from Half Moon Bay to Kennedy Point on the Sealink car and passenger ferry. Getting around on Waiheke is easy. There’s a wide range of rental options available, from cars to scooters, alongside bus and taxi services and even a hop-on, hop-off bus called the Vineyard Hopper that will take you to remote vineyards. Take an organised tour to enjoy a selection of vineyards, olive groves, beach side cafes and stunning scenery. Explore the Island by bicycle or let an electric ecycle flatten the hills. Kayaking is a great way to explore Waiheke's stunning coastline and turquoise coves - some of which are inaccessible by road.
