Great Barrier Island Charters
SeaLink vessels are available for charters within the Hauraki Gulf area. The Seaway and the Seamaster vessels are predominately used for charters, however we also offer Seacat, which is more often available around midday, dependent on requirements. These vessels all depart from Half Moon Bay. Charters are predominately used for school groups, however companies also use this service for transporting large machinery and equipment.
