Auckland Island FerryFerry Auckland Island
BELARAIRE FERRIES prides itself on providing a high level of security and client experience. Just 45 minutes from Auckland's CBD, Idyllic Rakino Island is a great base for week-end or outings. When we are expecting large numbers of people, we are trying to make a bigger ship available.
If there are more people than we can transport, we will return the ferry to collect those who have been abandoned. SuperGold rates for this services are not offered by Auckland Transport. From Stanley Bay can I go to Rakino Island?
A number of our facilities provide pick-up and/or return at Stanley Bay. Is it possible to go from Hobsonville Marina to Rakino Island? What kind of baggage can I take with me? Travellers can take one hand baggage (equivalent to a packed banana) and one medium-sized case (equivalent to 2 packed bananas) free of surcharge.

Auckland City County, Auckland, NZ, Waiheke Island Ferry
General appearance all around amber. Probably a whole bunch more than two, but I couldn't get off the ferry. Wide ribbon at the end of the cock. Grouped loosely with raptors, flapping red-throated diver and seagulls. This is a good one, many other murky waters. Three-group birdlife seen from the ferry.
Probably a good 30 in each group.
Auckland Island launches new ferry line to improve jump frequencies
From Saturday onwards, ferry connections in Auckland will be revolutionized like never before after the local Explore Group has received the go-ahead for a larger number of ferry connections between the city centre and the Hauraki Gulf isles. The Explore Group already has a strong reputation in the local sail sector and makes Auckland's most popular offshore destinations more easily reachable than ever before.
As a prelude to the new age, a first trip is scheduled for Saturday, October 4 at 8:30 am. This Group D5 ship will first sail into the Hauraki Gulf before the D6 will be launched before 2015. Each year Waiheke Island enjoys increasing fame and has historic sites such as the World War II Stony Batter tunnel, not to speak of a number of picturesque shores, namely Oneroa and Cactus Bay.
