    Ferry from Paihia to Russell

    by kiwigal_1 Written Jan 24, 2006

    With holidaymakers staying in Pahia or in Russell and wanting to make daytrips to either destination several ferry services started up. Some are high speed and others are slower but take about 15 minutes maximum. The ferries run very regularly from both locations. These ferries are for foot traffic only - no cars. If you want to drive between the two places then you will have to go back to Opua and take the car ferry across to Russell that way.

    Most people travel to the Bay of Islands by car. To get to Russell the best way is to drive to Opua and take the car ferry across. It costs about $18 return for a car and driver. The ferries are run by Fullers and run more frequently during peak times. You might have to wait but usually no longer than about 30 minutes depending on traffic.
