Interislander Ferry

Interislander ferries have cruised the magnificent route between the capital city Wellington and the port of Picton for well over 50 years, so we really know what we are doing! The 92km (85 mile), three hour journey is acknowledged as one of the most spectacular ferry rides in the world.

Your clients will experience the ease of packing the car or campervan and driving on board Interislander to explore everything the North and South Islands of the country have to offer.

Alternatively, they can walk on board and easily pick up a rental car from our rental car partners based at our terminals in Wellington and Picton.
