Upcoming ferries

Two new 360-seaters, to be used to escape to Waiheke, will cost Fullers $16 million. Designed on the Te Kotuku, which was introduced to the market just over a year ago, it includes changes that reflect employee and customer input. Fullers say that the three ships offer a more standardized and thus more uniform standard of services.

These two new ships will be used to substitute the Jet Raider, which serves as a back-up, and finally the Quickcat. The two new ships, like the Te Kotuku, will be constructed by Q-West Boatbuilders in Wanganui and are scheduled to go into service in October 2016 and April 2017. I estimate that some of these new ships will be in the rivalry with Fullers of Explore Ferries, which began operating to Waiheke last year.

With its launch, AT aims to raise the number of connections to and from the town. You have suggested a new roadmap and are looking for user-support. Of what I can see, the cipher happening bedclothes a sheet to the 20 point rate employment in the greeting and day end of the mostly 30 point employment.

We also have some new nightly church celebrations on Friday and Saturday afternoons. The increase in the number, capacitiy and range of the ministry can only be a good thing for the sponsorship and the sponsorship of the ferries has grown well lately, with yearly numbers of over 10% compared to this year. A selection of the suggested schedule, which is expected to be in place in January, is given below.

They are also investigating how to better link busses through Beachlands and Maraetai and are also looking for preliminary feedbacks, with a second one later.

Easter Journey to Great Barrier Island

We' re going to Great Barrier Iceland this Easter vacation week-end (April 6-9). Though technologically a part of the Auckland area, the islands has a rather remote magic feeling with quiet, Pohutukawa-lined ports on the western shore, rugged seashores on the eastern shore and indigenous forests in the main mountainous area, with naturally occurring warm water sources and a range of walks.

Diving Update (4:00 pm, April 5th): 24 say they have reserved a ferry/plane to/from the isle. Now all 24 seats in the group transportation are occupied: - This journey demands some self-organization, especially if you have something other than the master group schedule (see below). - The group organization is mainly restricted to the map of the group and the walking route and the rental of 2 mini buses for the group' s transportation to/from the Tryphena Shipyard, the walking sites and the lodging in Orama.

It is especially recommendable for those who arrive on the Isle at the same/similar times (see participation update above), and for those who are interested in sharing meals, cookery, etc.. Groupplan: Groupplan:: There is a group transportation schedule for all who want to be part of this one. If you prefer a different schedule, you can hike with us at the weekends if you make a different arrangement for any schedule discrepancies.

In this phase the major group schedule is: - arrival on Thursday night by Fullers ferry; - rental of 2 GBI Rent A Coach for the whole week-end; - 4 night Orama accommodation (camping, bunker room and cabins options); - day trekking on Friday, Saturday and Sunday with extra explorations and brief treks on these dates and on Monday mornings.

  • Auckland will return by Fullers boat on Monday afternoons. Meetings: - The group meets at Pier 2, Terminal Station, Quay Street, Downtown. Waiheke and Rangkitoto ferryboats leave from Pier 2 on the western side of the pier at the end of Queen Street. - For Sealink passengers: Wynyard Wharf Jellicoe Street-boat.

Friday: Sunday: Monday: Fullers Ferry's schedule is the basis of the schedule (http://www.fullers.co.nz/destinations-tours/great-barrier-island. php). Attention, Fullers Ferry is now fully sold! - Ferries are expected to be fully chartered a few months before Easter. - They can be ph[masked] to make reservations and payment by plastic cards or by visiting Fullers offices. - To view Fuller's website (http://www.fullers.co.nz/destinations-tours/great-barrier-island. php) for more detail.

Alternatively, if you miss Fullers Ferry and still want to participate, there are other ways to get to/from the ferry-station. Arrival before 8:30 pm on Thursday and departure after 1 pm on Monday there are no problem with grouping. If not, you may have to rent your own means of transportation (but we can try to include you in our group transportation, according to how well your schedule suits us).

  • In the event of cancellation, please review Fullers ferry first! - Use ferries Sealink (http://www.sealink.co.nz/great-barrier-island/index. html): Cost $65 one way, $120 two ways; travel time 4 hrs one way; departure Auckland 7:00 hrs Thursday & Friday; departure Tryphena 13:00 hrs Monday and Tuesday; departure other nights before and after Easter if you want to prolong the journey; 7:00 hrs Thursday departure suits our schedule well; 7:00 hrs Friday departure does not match well; 13:00 hrs Monday departure suits our schedule well; Attention, Friday crossing there and Monday crossing are now fully reserved - Thursday crossing canceled - Tuesday crossing is canceled now.
  • If you are flying with Great Barrier Airline (http://www.greatbarrierairlines.co. nz/), Flight My Sky (http://www.flymysky.co. both carriers have similar schedules and rates; Departure Auckland Airport; arrival Claris and/or Okiwi Airport on the Isle; several departures per flight; 30 minutes drive; one-way rates between $104 (not changeable) and $129 (freely changeable); arrival on early Friday mornings and/or departure on Sunday will probably suit with group schedule, but arrival on Thursday and departure on Monday is better;

Please note: The Monday flight returns of Great Barrier Airlines are now fully sold out, currently only available for Monday; the aircraft are not currently arriving in Okiwi as the conditions at the airport are such that this will not be changed until Easter. - Boat Cruise/Fly Option: One way flight + boat trip in another direction; Sealink + Boat My Sky rate is $179, or can buy one-way Sealink ticket ($65) + both airlines; flight Thursday afternoons and boat 1pm Monday suits our group schedule very well and seats are currently available.

Transfer on the island: - We rent two 12-seater mini buses from GBI Rent A Coach (http://www.gbirentacar.co. nz/) for the whole week-end to discover the isle. That gives us the greatest possible mobility and liberty to discover the islands and adjust our walking schedules to the season. - All the charges are divided by all those who use the group transportation (including those who do not use it for all 4 nights, as at least 4 nights are rented at Easter).

  • Transport costs per passenger for 4 nights are estimated at approximately $60-70. Every participant in group transportation is asked to contribute $70 in hard currency when we make our first meeting. - For those who wish to sleep in a different type of lodging or do not travel in group mini-buses, a separate transportation can be booked.

Those who have failed to do so can still take part in the journey if they organise their own transportation on the isle. - For those who would rather spend the night somewhere else and organise their own transportation, here are some other reasonably priced accommodations. You can hike around the islands, especially in the Great Barrier Forest.
