WIN With Fullers: The Waiheke Summer Sailings Have Begun…

By  | 

I like to think of Waiheke as my second home. A home away from home if you will. Having spent a vast majority of my childhood there (and a good amount of time now as an adult) I like to think there’s no other place like Waiheke; that’s quite as magical, that’s so close to the city, yet makes you feel like you’re truly ‘getting away’. If you haven’t visited Waiheke yet, you really must. And, thanks to Fullers, you might just do that for free…

To celebrate Fullers’ new, more frequent summer sailings, one lucky reader will win x2 return tickets (adult passes) to Waiheke, to experience for themselves, their very own taste of paradise over on Fantasy Island – aka Waiheke!

WIN With Fullers: The Waiheke Summer Sailings Have Begun…
Waiheke Island has long been one of Auckland’s favourite summer playgrounds, with its beautiful beaches, warm micro-climate and relaxed vibe. A world away from Auckland, Conde Nast Traveler’s favourite island escape is perfect for lazy summer days spent wining and dining.

Fullers is making the trip to Waiheke effortless this summer with its announcement of half hour sailings and an improved on-board menu that highlights local artisanal products from the island, ultimately ensuring that the journey is just as much of 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.

Additions to the food menu include some of the island’s most moreish artisan products, such as decadent Waiheke hand-cut fudges and Te Whau Lodge’s toasted muesli – a breakfast option usually reserved for guests staying at the exclusive $495 per night retreat.

Extend your Waiheke tasting experience with superb wine and craft beverages now on offer on-board each of the ferries making the Hauraki Gulf crossings.

When it comes to your next Waiheke adventure, get on board Fullers this summer for speedy sailings and a fresh take on ferry fare. Check out for more information.
