Waiheke Island

We sail up to 16 times daily to Waiheke Island from two different terminals in Auckland. Find out about our departure times and our fare options. 

Great Barrier Island 

We sail between three and six times a week to Great Barrier Island, depending on whether we are operating a summer or winter timetable. There are two main ports on Great Barrier, Tryphena and Port Fitzroy. Find out about our departure times and our fares options.

Rakino Island

We sail a monthly service based on minimum numbers to Rakino Island from Half Moon Bay, East Auckland. Find out about our departure times and our fare options.

Pine Harbour

We sail 20 times weekdays (excluding public holidays) from Pine Harbour to Pier 3, Auckland City, and extra services on a Friday evening. Find out about our departure times and our fare options. 

How to measure your vehicle

If you are not sure if your vehicle is a standard size (up to 5.5 metres) in length we recommend you measure from the front bumper to the rear bumper or tow bar.  That is the measurement we require to ensure we have enough space on the ferry to load your vehicle.

If you have bike racks, kayaks, or building supplies that hang over the length of your vehicle, you’ll need to book a vehicle space the entire length of the overhang. Boat trailers will need to be measured from the 'hitch' connection to the end of the outboard motor or any overhang. If you can tilt your engine once parked then we can use that measurement.

Measuring your vehicle correctly is critical during summer or long holiday weekends when the ferries are full.  We cannot guarantee passage if you incorrectly measure your vehicle.

Bags, bikes & pets

Check out our information on baggage, bikes and pets to know what you can take with you on your sailing.


If you’re travelling as part of a group of more than 10 people, you may like to have a look at our group travel as discounts may apply.

Once you have booked and paid you’ll receive a confirmation via email with details of check-in and departure information. Please bring your booking number with you for check-in.

How to pay

We accept Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Diners Club and Flexipay for online or telephone bookings. EFTPOS is also available at all our terminals. Cheques are no longer accepted.

Disruptions, amendments and cancellations

We like to think we’re the most reliable way to get you to wherever you’re going. Sometimes conditions change and disruptions occur. If we cancel a sailing due to rough weather, you’re entitled to a full refund. 

Amendments and cancellation fees may be charged, depending on your circumstances. If you’re running late and are going to miss your ferry, please call us on 0800 SEALINK and let us know. That way, we can change your booking to another sailing time.

Travelling without a booking (standby)

Should you wish to travel without a booking, you can arrive at the terminal at any time during the day, 30 minutes prior to a sailing. Standby vehicles are processed after all booked passengers are onboard. 

Usually standby is on a ‘first come, first to load’ basis, although this is always subject to deck space availability. For standby, we recommend you allow more time over the peak summer period or on public holiday weekends. You can purchase tickets at the terminal on a standby basis, and will be put on the next available sailing.
