Private Essence of Wine Tour

Your ferry to Waiheke will depart from pier 1 or 2 at the downtown ferry terminal, located at 99 Quay St. If you have purchased ferry tickets as part of your booking, we will email you a booking reference number shortly, which you will need to quote at the ticket office on the day. Please note that if you book after 4.30 pm the night prior we will send your ticket booking number in the morning after 8 am (when the ferry company opens). Please call us if you have not received them by 9am.

Otherwise, you do not need to book this ferry but make sure you turn up at least 25 minutes prior to departure time. If you have not purchased ferry tickets with this order, you will require a return Waiheke ferry ticket which will cost $42pp

The ferry to Waiheke takes 35 minutes. When the ferry arrives at Matiatia (the Waiheke Wharf) our Ananda Tours Driver will meet you with a sign welcoming you. Lunch is usually around 1.30 - 2 pm, so please ensure you have an adequate breakfast.

Please note that our office is not located at Matiatia Wharf, so if you choose to catch an earlier ferry on the day, our guide won't arrive at Matiatia until the scheduled time. Please call us if you arrive early on 372-7530 and we will tell you where to wait.
