Waiheke Island has always been one of my favourite getaways. Especially now that work is starting up again, and you long to run away back to Summer… Why not? You deserve a break after a week back at work! Get back into that bikini and bring back the summer vibes this weekend with A FREE RETURN TRIP from Auckland to Waiheke!
Sounds amazing! Still need convincing? Well, for starters Waiheke is home to some of the most beautiful beaches and with it’s warm micro-climate you can run away from all your problems and Auckland’s classic weather. Wine and dine yourself and a friend.
Even Fullers is making the trip more and more effortless this summer with it’s new announcement of half hour sailings and a new on-board menu that highlights new local artisanal products from the island. Including fresh, handmade produce from local suppliers committed to using natural, free-range ingredients. There’s more gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options available too. Ultimately, they are transforming the journey into just as much an experience as the destination.
The new summer timetable will allow eager day-trippers to head off from Auckland as early as 5:35am – perfect for early risers wanting to make the most of their time on the island. Night owls wanting to stay late to explore Waiheke’s many wineries, restaurants and bars can depart Waiheke on the late night service at 12:30am. With over 400 journeys each week to and from the island, it will be smooth sailing for tourists and commuters alike.
