Fullers are the main ferry operator to Motutapu and Rangitoto Islands. The Motutapu ferry service has been temporarily suspended. There are daily ferries to Rangitoto.

When the Fuller’s Ferry to Rangitoto is full, it is full. Volunteers are asked to book in advance, directly with Fullers by phoning 09 367 9111. Please advise Fullers when booking that you are a Motutapu Tree Planter (even though you may not be planting on the day), and that you will have a discount card and will pay on the volunteer day.

This is a booking only. Fullers will give you a booking reference number and you can use this to redeem your discounted ticket and pay on the day.

The Trust’s Volunteer Coordinators will meet you at the Ferry Building under the arch and give you the Ferry discount card which you will need to get the discounted ferry trip. If you cannot make it on the day please let Fullers know.

Alternatively, there are water taxis via Auckland Sea Shuttles.
