Cruise Ship Passengers - Napier City Bike Hire & Tours

cruise ship passenger information

Book your Napier shore excursion with us!

Because Napier Port is a working port, all cruise ship passengers visiting Napier are met ship side by shuttle buses organised by the cruise-lines. You are then transferred a short distance from the port to the Napier i-SITE Visitor Information Centre in town. Our store is located directly across the road from the i-SITE, and the cycle pathway.

Are you visiting Napier by cruise ship? Why not make the most of your time here and explore our beautiful region by bike! Whether you just ride for an hour to work off the buffet, or go on one of our tours to enjoy wineries, we have bikes and options for you. With over 200km of off-road cycle pathway at our doorstep, cycling here is safe, easy (as all the pathways are flat!) and fun.

We know your time in port is precious - so our team have carefully tailored tours that will be suitable for your day in port. This will ensure you will be back in time for the last shuttle back to the cruise ship (the last shuttle is usually an hour before your ships scheduled departure time from port).

Please find your cruise ship in the list below for more information to plan the best port day in Napier and Hawkes Bay!

Napier City Bike Hire & Tours will be closed from the 22nd March 2020 until further notice. 

This is a decision we have not made lightly but feel in the interests of social responsibility it is the right one. Given the current situation with COVID19 we believe we have a duty of care to ensure we do what we can to protect our wonderful staff and the community. 

While we will not be taking bookings at this time, lines of enquiry are welcomed and can be made preferably by email to or call us on 0800 245 344. You can follow us on Facebook (NapierCityBikeHire) and Instagram (@napiercitybikehire) to keep up to date with any developments.

We appreciate your understanding during these tough times, and look forward to when we will once again be able to host you on our trails.


Until then, take care - both of yourself and others.
