Feildays Ferry Return

Riding the Waikato River Explorer to events at Mystery Creek Events Centre certainly beats sitting in long traffic queues and the long walk back to the car at the end of the day with bags of bargains and samples.

You will also get to enjoy the amazing river scenery with native bush, waterfalls and some of the most spectacular property in the North Island.

Enjoy a cup of coffee, hot breakfast and a catch up on the latest news on the journey upstream to Mystery Creek Events Centre and something cold from the fridge afterwards.

Our Mystery Creek Ferry service operates up to six return trips each day to events at Mystery Creek Events Centre.

Bookings essential on all sailings to avoid disappointment!
NB: You will need to book both your upstream trip and return trip seperately:
1-way prices:
