No more excuses for not seeing Auckland

No more excuses for not seeing Auckland

Fullers, Auckland’s leading operator of ferries and island tours, is now making it even easier for Aucklanders to get out and explore the region.

With a new-look website, and an online booking system which offers some great savings, it is hoped Aucklanders will take the opportunity to experience some of the wonderful destinations just a short trip from the city.

The new online booking system, accessed on the Fullers website, allows customers to buy tickets for Fullers’ ferry and tourist services, including trips and tours to Waiheke, Rangitoto and Devonport along with the Harbour Cruise.

And every day the company will set aside some reduced price tickets (saver seats) for these services.

“There is a great variety of day trips available and it would be wonderful to see Aucklanders taking the opportunity to explore the region,” says Fullers CEO, Douglas Hudson.

“So often we ignore what is right on our doorstep, but we should all appreciate how lucky we are in this region with places like Rangitoto and Waiheke just a short ride away.

“Fullers’ tourism packages aim to provide people with a fantastic overall experience. In addition to offering a wonderful way to get to these destinations, our tours aim to showcase the best the region has to offer, from Waiheke’s stunning vineyards to Rangitoto’s breathtaking scenery.”
