Great Barrier Island residents' deal
If you live on Great Barrier Island, you can take advantage of our special Great Barrier Residents’ Deal.
These deals are only available for return trips, departing from Tryphena on Great Barrier Island and exclude the Tuesday freight sailing.
All passengers and vehicles travelling to/from Great Barrier Island should check-in 60 minutes prior to departure. To get everyone loaded and ensure the ferry departs on time, we can’t guarantee passage if you’re running late, and your spot may then be allocated to one of the standby vehicles.
How to purchase your Great Barrier Island Residents’ Deal
The residents' car and two passengers deal can be booked by calling 0800 SEALINK (0800 732 546).
Travelling with pets
Dogs are permitted to travel on the ferry on the outside decks. Only a registered guide dog or assistance dog will be permitted to travel in the passenger lounge with their owner. Cats can travel from Great Barrier Island either in your vehicle or in an approved animal carrier cage.
