Getting to Great Barrier Island by Sea
SeaLinks' ferry, the Island Navigator carries cars, passengers and freight to the island.
We depart from Aucklands Wynyard Wharf, three times a week in Winter, and daily in Summer.
Sailings take approximately 4.5 hours to get to Tryphena, the Southernmost port of Great Barrier island. The time passes quickly as there is plenty to see in the way of stunning scenery, birdlife and marine life... whales, orca and dolphins are often sighted. Onboard you'll find two reading rooms, a cafe/bar and two theatres where current movies are shown.
