Long history of sponsorships
SeaLink is a proud and proactive participant in our Hauraki Gulf communities and supports the sustainable growth and ambitions of our communities both on and off-island. We contribute to various events on both Waiheke and Great Barrier Islands as well as our local Auckland community through the donation of ferry travel vouchers, as well as discounted travel.
Among our most well known sponsorships are St John, Auckland Rescue Helicopter, Jassy Dean Trust (supporting sick children on Waiheke), Onetangi Beach Races (Waiheke Rotary), Waiheke Island Rugby Club, Waiheke learner licence drivers scheme and the Island schools.
