"Blue, Red and White Ferries" Russell Transportation Tip by IcemanNZL
Russell Transportation: 3 reviews and 5 photos
Russell is only 3Km across the bay from Paihia and ferries cross the harbour frequently.
The blue and white ferries slowly cross the harbour, but if you are in for a bit of fun then jump on the red ferry, this ferry is smaller and im sure the driver is a speed freak. With the amount of water traffic in the Bay all you need is some wake of a passing boat and you end up airbourne jumping over the waves.
Ferry crossings cost NZD$5.00 and are an easy way of travelling between Paihia and Russell.
