Cruisin' on the Interislander

The 92 km, three hour journey between Wellington and Picton is one of New Zealand's most iconic tourist experiences.

Wine Spectator magazine called it "one of the most beautiful ferry rides in the world”.


Our three ships offer up to 11 sailings per day, providing a wide choice of travel times.  And you’ll travel in comfort too, with a complete range of onboard services including movies, kids play areas, and of course – stunning views.

All ships offer bar and café facilities with a wide variety of fresh food offerings, including gluten free options.  The journey is family friendly, with nursery and play facilities onboard.  Ships are equipped with a Wi-Fi service that can be purchased onboard and bands often play in Karori Rip bar on Kaitaki - so keep an ear out!

Premium Plus lounges are the most luxurious way to travel between the islands.  Available on Kaitaki and Aratere, Premium Plus offers complimentary food and beverages, free internet access, and comfortable seating as well as a range of magazines and newspapers.  The lounges are restricted to passengers aged 18 years and over, so if you don’t have kids, this is definitely the right choice.

No matter how you are travelling on land, Interislander will provide you an unforgettable experience over water.  We look forward to welcoming you aboard.
