Information for Cruise Ship Passengers

Because Napier Port is a working port, all cruise ship passengers visiting Napier are met ship side by organised shuttle buses and transferred the short distance 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 the time you have here, and explore our beautiful city and area by bike! 
With over 200km of off-road cycle pathway at our doorstep, cycling here is safe,  easy (as all the pathways are flat!).

Let us know that you are arriving on a cruise ship when you make your booking and we will ensure your bike is ready to go when you arrive. We adjust our opening hours accordingly if cruise ships are due in early in the morning or departing late.

We know your time in port is precious - so our team have carefully created the table below with a tour that will be suitable for you to be back in time for the last shuttle. Please refer to our Self Guided Day Tours page to find out more about each tour.
Please be aware that these tours are subject to change, as the cruise schedule may change. If you book a tour with us, we endeavour to keep you updated if any changes are required.

How do we get to your store?

All cruise ship passengers into Napier are transported via shuttle to the i-SITE Visitor Information Centre.  We are located directly across the road from where the buses stop.

I don’t know where to ride, can you help with that?

Yes!  Our friendly crew will give you suggestions on where to go, based on how long you wish to ride for and what you wish to see.  The trails are signposted but we also provide maps and instructions.

I want to go to a winery - is that possible?

Yes!  There are two lovely wineries located less than 16km (10 miles) from our store.  It takes most people 1-1.5 hours to ride there.  You can ride there and back or book a day tour and have our shutle pick you up from the winery and return you to the store.

Do I have to wear a cycle helmet?

Yes, the wearing of cycle helmets is compulsory in New Zealand.  A helmet is included in the cost of your hire.

Do you have e-bikes available?

Yes!  We have a number of e-bikes available.  They are very popular so we definitely recommend booking before you arrive.
