ruby red/rednesday: Red Sea Link ferry

Waiheke Island is a picturesque blend of farmland, forest, beaches, vineyards and olive groves. Located in the Hauraki Gulf of New Zealand, it is only 35 minutes by ferry from downtown Auckland. There is a great range of activities on Waiheke including sightseeing, mountain biking, sea kayaking, vineyard & winery tours and much more.
SeaLink operates car and passenger ferry services to Waiheke Island from Half Moon Bay and to Great Barrier Island from Auckland city. Waiheke Island ferry is a 35 minute trip from downtown Auckland or 45 minutes from Half Moon Bay to Kennedy Point on the car and passenger ferry.

Yesterday was our Auckland Anniversary day. I went back to Half Moon Bay and a Sea link ferry was just pulling in. People and cars were queuing a long time to board. It did looked as though it had come in from another country.

I remember the ferry in Rejang River in Borneo. We were among the first to cross the river because it was near where my grandma lived.

Well built red ship, she's got beautiful lines and a steady look.
We are used to travel by ferries as well. Norway is tagged with fjord all along the coastline.
To visit my daughter I have to use four ferries, but they are all white.

I am used to ferry boat too because that's what we ride when we go to another place across the city I lived. To ride a bus it takes more than 4 or 5 hours but for a ferry boat it will only take like 30 minutes. A great help for us. Love the red color painted on the ferries. Thanks for sharing!
