To ensure your own personal safety, we request that if you are travelling with dangerous goods that you check the dangerous goods list.  If you are still unsure either refer to our Dangerous Goods onboard SeaLink vessels or contact us for further assistance.

COVID-19 Alert Level 3 Update

When at Alert Level 3, travel on our ferries is allowed for permitted reasons

Where you are travelling with a vehicle, we ask that you and your passengers remain in your vehicles whilst at our terminals and on our ferries.

At Alert Level 3, we will be allowing foot passenger travel but please note that due to social distancing, passenger numbers are very limited. To avoid missing out we recommend that you book in advance.

We ask that you wear a mask / face covering at all times at our terminals and on our vessels. If you have a mask exemption, please consider travelling in a vehicle rather than as a foot passenger and that you may be asked to show an Exemption Card.

Please note, for the safety and security of both staff and passengers, we are no longer accepting cash payments onboard or at our terminals and the cafes/bars on board all vessels are closed.

You can see our full COVID-19 terms & conditions here.

Caution needed around Kennedy Point
To facilitate upcoming construction work happening at Kennedy Point Marina, there will be one lane closed on Donald Bruce Road. To assist with reducing volumes and congestion on the road as well as the associated health and safety risks in the area, all passenger and vehicle ticket sales should be booked at sealink.co.nz/book or by calling 09 300 5900.

Stand-by places cannot be guaranteed on any sailing during this time.

Foot passengers should be picked up and dropped off at the 24-hour carpark at the top of the hill and not at the terminal.
