About

Cruise through the stunning Marlborough Sounds between Wellington and Picton on the Interislander. Soak in the changing scenery of Wellington city, the often-dramatic Te-Moana-Raukawa Cook Strait and gentler Queen Charlotte Sound. The three-hour journey gives you plenty of time to take insta-worthy photos, put your feet up and relax and enjoy the fresh, local food and beverages we are proud to serve.
Our three spacious and comfortable ferries - Kaitaki, Aratere and Kaiarahi - cross the Cook Strait seven days a week, all year round, with a range of convenient sailing times. The Interislander ferries offer a range of places to eat and drink, adults-only lounges, gift shop, cinema with recent-release movies and children’s play areas.
