The Journey

Cross Cook Strait with us and truly experience our two beautiful islands.  Interislander is far more than the New Zealand ferry service that bridges the gap between the North and South Islands. 

We link our great little country.

The 92 km, three hour journey between Wellington and Picton is one of New Zealand's most iconic tourist experiences, and acknowledged as one of the most spectacular cruises in the world.

You will never forget Cook Strait.  It is so spectacular, it was named after the guy who discovered us!

Our three ships, Kaiarahi, Aratere and Kaitaki carry both passengers and vehicles operate up to 11 crossings per day, giving you flexible, affordable and convenient travel times.

You will experience comfort, friendly hospitality and service as you enjoy one of the world's great straits aboard a modern craft with conveniences such as a variety of food and beverage facilities, children’s play areas, and on board Wi-Fi.

Interislander. The journey is even better than getting there.
