InterIslander Ferry - Picton to Wellington
Jump aboard the Interislander, a daily ferry service across the Cook Strait; the stretch of water separating the South and North Islands of New Zealand. Not just the link between islands, it's a New Zealand experience not be missed. An edition of the US magazine Wine Spectator, described the Interislander trip as 'one of the most beautiful ferry rides in the world' and the scenery was described as 'jaw droppingly stunning!'
InterIslander offers daily ferry services across the Cook Strait linking New Zealand's North and South Islands. Cruise across in 3.5-hours whilst traveling in comfort and style as you savor one of the world's most scenic ferry journeys.
The picturesque port town of Picton at one end of the crossing is left behind as you cruise through the serene waters of Queen Charlotte Sound in the heart of the Marlborough Sounds. The sparkling clear waters and lush forests of the Sounds is breathtaking as you leave the South Island.
At the other end of the crossing is the beautiful harbor of New Zealand's capital city, Wellington (North Island). The cruise across Wellington Harbor offers a unique view of this exciting city. Nestled between surrounding hills and the glistening harbor, Wellington is a vibrant city which has retained the charm of its early colonial heritage. Wellington is alive with some of New Zealand's finest restaurants, shopping and theater - including the spectacular Te Papa Museum of New Zealand.
