Riverhead Ferry

Auckland Guide

Riverhead Ferry

Leaving from Auckland’s downtown Ferry Terminal embark on a 1 ½ hours cruise to the historic restored Riverhead Tavern.

The cruise takes you under the Auckland Harbour Bridge, past the Chelsea Sugar Works, Kauri Point Ammunition Dump, Hobsonville Airbase, Herald Island, Paremoremo Inlet and Huapai Golf Course all the way to Riverhead.

When you arrive you are welcomed by the friendly staff where you can enjoy a meal and a few drinks for two hours.

Nestled on the shores of the upper Waitemata, The Riverhead, built in 1857, is steeped in local history and was a vital part of the development of early New Zealand.  Extensively renovated in 2011 the tavern now provides fresh New Zealand food with flair, great beers, local wines and great coffee.  With wide open air deck, cosy indoors or lawn under the historic oak trees overlooking the water has been a favourite gathering place for more than a century.

Once you have enjoyed your meal and a drink or two you are taken for another leisurely cruise back to Auckland City.
