Each year, Kaitaki hosts hundreds of bands and performers who keep passengers entertained whilst bagging free passage to the other side.

This offer is open not only to bands, but also to other entertainers who would like to perform on-board the Kaitaki ferry and in return we will provide free passage for up to 6 people and 1 vehicle. It’s important you totally complete the application form and send it to us in the first instance. We will review your application and let you know.

Please note that performances are restricted to Kaitaki morning and afternoon sailings.

You must apply at least one month prior to desired travel date and performances must be family-friendly.
