Whitianga Ferry

It’s only about a 3-minute ride, and this trusty boat does it continuously for at least 12 hours a day.

As a result of all that practice, the skippers know all the tricks to get from here to there, taking the strong estuary currents, winds, and passengers into account. After using the absolute minimum required fuel to get across, they mostly don’t even get up from their seat to grab the mooring line and swing into the dock… it’s always a pleasure to see someone make it look easy.
