Waiheke Island Ferry TerminalThe Waiheke Island Ferry Port
On the Sealink ferry from Half Moon Bay to Kennedy Point on Waiheke we were a little upset that there was hardly anything else near the ferry dock. There' s a good sidewalk, but it will take you through Surfdale, Blackpool and finally to Oneroa, the island's trading hub with stores and restuarant.
It' a lovely stroll, but it's maybe 5 km between the ferry and the city. The ferry trip away, a different feeling and a different ambience than on the continent. If you are further away from the ferry and the capital, the more picturesque it becomes. We' re in Waiheke for a little party. We had a great luncheon at Te Whau Vineyard and relished the relaxing island ambience.
The ferry and the hop-on, hop-off coach trip offered a good panoramic of the island. This was a public holidays week-end and the island was (relatively) full, but the ferry companies were very well organised, so the logistic was no prob. This ferry trip itself is reasonably priced and offers a great panoramic sight of Auckland and the surrounding isles.
Auckland is easily connected to Waiheke by ferry, which leaves daily until midnight! There are many good vineyards and excellent places to eat. You' ll also be able to see Auckland and Sky Tower from the seaside! Have you been to Waiheke Island?
