Great Barrier Guide

Great Barrier Ferry Port

Tryphena Port is the most populated area on the Great Barrier Island, resting on the southwestern coast surrounded by hills and mountains. Traditionally popular among older generations, the region is renowned for its relaxing lifestyle embodied by the scorching sun, luxurious beaches and tranquil bays. In the centre, visitors enjoy the selection of cafes, restaurants and even an Irish Pub often showing live sporting events. With the island’s close proximity to New Zealand, the most popular crossing is to one of New Zealand’s most popular cities in Auckland. Sealink have supplied a new FastFerry designed to ease the growing frustrations with the previous crossings which were deemed to take too long. It is worth considering that there is no café or restaurant on board so passengers are advised to bring their own food and drink. The lack of entertainment on board is made redundant from the spectacular views of the stunning scenery witnessed on the sailing: whales, orcas and dolphins are all visible from the deck. Transport to Tryphena Port can be troublesome, especially for new visitors, due to the lack of public transport and taxis. All resorts including hotels will arrange for a shuttle bus to transport their customers to the port, however, it is worth booking one or two days in advance. To witness the sights of the island, many visitors arrange an island tour to save on time and money.
