Tour operators

Cruise passengers consistently rate Napier Port as one of the best ports of call in New Zealand. That’s down to the memorable welcome they receive on the wharf, the calibre of service offered by our tourism industry, and the way we and our tourism partners work together to provide a seamless experience.

Having our tour operators right there on the wharf, ready to take passengers for a taste of Hawke’s Bay, is an important element of our service. But every journey at Napier Port starts with safety, and that includes our visitors and our tourism partners. It’s vital that we know who is coming onto our port, why they’re coming, and when.
