Do you need to travel between the North and South Island?
Interislander’s Cook Strait Ferries travel between Wellington and Picton New Zealand.
The shortest distance between New Zealand’s two main islands, which are separated by the Cook Strait. This stunning stretch of water is aptly named after its discoverer Captain James Cook.
Enjoy the 96km crossing in 3 hours. You’ll be able to sneak gorgeous views of Wellington and of the Marlborough Sounds. If you get lucky, you might spot a dolphin or a whale on the way. This ferry ride is often referred to as one of the most beautiful ferry rides in the world and will definitely be one of the highlights of your New Zealand holiday.
Budgy Campers issues a Easy Change Ticket which gives you the flexibility of changing dates and crossing times. It is subject to availability, but as a holder of the Easy Change Ticket you’ll be given priority access to the available tickets.
During the peak season (September – March) it is recommended that you book the ferry in advance.
