Travel alerts

Keeping the Hauraki Gulf Pest Free

Remember to ensure your vehicles are clean before arriving at our terminals as heavily soiled vehicles and machinery may be turned away from our vessels due to fear of spreading Kauri Die Back Disease to the Hauraki Gulf Islands.

See here for more detail on SeaLink's Pest Free Warrant and how you can help keep our islands beautiful.

Changes to Waiheke Island pricing

Our passenger and vehicle (up to 5.5m) fares for Waiheke sailings now vary partly with demand. This means you may get a better deal if you plan ahead, and are flexible with sailing dates and times. A change fee will be charged if you wish to change your booking ($20 for a vehicle booking and $5 for a passenger only booking) plus any fare difference must be paid. New fares and change fees do not apply to Waiheke Residents’ Deals, Rental Car Deals, account customer rates, concessions and multi-passes.

Construction Works - Kennedy Point Waiheke Island

From Monday 11 March until 21 December 2019 Auckland Transport will be undertaking construction work close to the SeaLink Kennedy Point ferry terminal. The following changes will be in place;

  •  Donald Bruce Road will be reduced to a ‘confirmed ferry booking’ lane only.
  •  Parking near the terminal will not be available
  •  Foot passengers should be picked up and dropped off at the 24-hour carpark at the top of the hill, not at the terminal.
  •  Drop-off and pick-up of disabled passengers is available near the ramp. Please advise the AT traffic controller at Kennedy Point
  •  Due to the loss of lanes near the terminal, ‘standbys’ cannot be accommodated To assist with reducing volumes and congestion SeaLink requests all passenger and vehicle sales and booking changes be made at www.sealink.co.nz or by calling 0800 732 546.

SeaLink appreciates your assistance and tolerance during this period and your best endeavours to assist with safety.
