Enjoy a day of hiking and exploring on Rangitoto Island - just a 25-minute ferry ride from central Auckland.

A causeway connects Rangitoto to Motutapu allowing you to walk between these two islands.

Notes

  • Plan Your Day:

    You'll need at least half a day (4-5 hours) to visit Rangitoto Island.

    Rangitoto's Wreck Bay - visit this heritage site at low tide by following Islington Bay Road over lava fields to the Boulder Bay Track - allow 2-hours return.

    Please check the time of the last ferry at the start of your trip - a clock on the wharf will indicate the last departure each day.

    From time to time, adverse weather conditions require us to sail into Islington Bay Wharf instead of Rangitoto Wharf. This means there are some changes to your walking time on the island.

    It may take up to an extra hour to walk to and from the summit from Islington Bay, and the track is shared by vehicles. We recommend you plan your walk accordingly and note the time of the last ferry leaving the island.

    If you are unsure of which wharf we will be sailing to, please call our customer care team on the morning of your departure.

Great Customer Service

Did our booking through BookMe but didn't receive our e-tickets. Called Fullers the morning of our trip and they quickly got it sorted Our BookMe confirmation said to be there at least 45 minutes early which was annoying as Fullers only require you to be there 15 minutes early - the Fullers staff were super friendly in every interaction.

Rained off.

Unfortunately heavy rain prevented us from going Friday morning. Took the train into the downtown ferry terminal could not see even a few yards . Theyโ€™ve advised us that the tickets were not transferable so went home. So will probably not go unless we get another ballot. John & Sally. Howick.
