A bit of history

Since 1960 SeaLink New Zealand (previously known as Subritzky Shipping Services) have been plying the waters of the Hauraki Gulf with safe, fast and reliable services for vehicles, passengers, freight, heavy road machinery and bulk supplies for the Hauraki Gulf islands.

From 2004 to 2011 (7 years) the company was in the hands of the South Australian tourism operator, Kangaroo Island SeaLink. The company quietly reverted back to New Zealand ownership in 2011 and is now owned by Lyncroft Holdings.

In 2014 SeaLink purchased Pine Harbour ferries, adding three fast passenger ferries to the fleet. Closely followed was the purchase of Clipper V (a second 98 seater) giving Pine Harbour a total of four passenger ferries to cover the Pine Harbour to Pier 3, Auckland City commuter service.
