These very special rates and benefits aren’t available to the general public, so you must show your NZMCA card at check-in.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard the service that has been part of the New Zealand landscape for over 50 years.

Extra-flexible fares

Decided to stay and extra night or have an unscheduled mechanical stop?  Just give us a call and reschedule up to 2 hours prior to your sailing.  In the event that you have to cancel completely, you’ll get a 90% refund.

Easiest drive-on drive-off

Did you know our biggest ferries, Kaitaki and Kaiarahi, are the only ferry on Cook Strait where you can drive on and drive off without having to turn your vehicle? You just drive through the bow door to board and out the stern door to disembark.

Easy for everyone, and perfect for fifth-wheelers.

Our fleet of three ships make up to 11 passenger sailings per day, giving you flexibility.
