Ferry Tickets for Entrants
Event entrants receive a return ferry ticket from Auckland to Motutapu included in their entry fee - see entry fee information.
When registering for this event your participant ferry ticket will be automatically registered against your name and collected when you register in person for the event at the compulsory pre-event registration.
Your event ferry departs either Pier 2, 99 Quay Street, Fullers Terminal in Auckland City or Marine Square, Fullers Terminal in Devonport (10 minutes after the CBD depart time) on the morning of the event. Participants are able to catch a ferry from either location.
If you're intending to take your own vessel to the event please email Julieanne with your vessel name and type, and you'll be provided with a code to use when entering online to remove the compulsory return ferry ticket from your registration.
