Travel time on Aratere sailings

 If you are sailing on the Aratere please be aware that we are currently experiencing disruptions due to a mechanical issue.

The Aratere is required to take an alternative route which will add around 45 minutes to the usual sailing time. The Aratere will travel through the northern entrance to and from Queen Charlotte Sound. You should allow around 4 hours and 15 minutes for your trip.

We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
