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