Aquaculture and Seafood Trail 360° Discovery Cruises




Joining the Trail


If you are travelling in a vehicle, then you will probably join the Aquaculture Trail from Thames. This means you can either drive up the Thames Coast Road towards Coromandel Township, or you can head towards Tairua on the east coast and drive up through Whitianga.

If you are in Auckland then you can catch a ferry with 360° Discovery Cruises. This ferry departs from the downtown ferry terminal in Auckland. Duration of ferry ride - 1 hr 50 mins each way. When you travel to Coromandel, your ferry will arrive at Hannaford’s Wharf. A free courtesy bus meets all arriving and departing ferries providing a shuttle to/from the centre of Coromandel Town.


A choice of bus tours, shuttle services and group charters are available to you, or why not pick up a rental vehicle so you can travel around the area at your own pace. If you are a cyclist, take your bike on the ferry (for free!), or inquire at the i-Site about bicycle hire.
