Wine Spectator magazine called us "one of the most beautiful ferry rides in the world" And we know you'll agree. Cross the great divide with Interislander and truly experience our two beautiful islands. The Interislander is far more than the New Zealand ferry service which bridges the North and South Island. It links our great country. The three-hour, 92km 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 the Cook Strait. It's so spectacular, we named it after the guy who discovered us. Aratere, Kaiarahi and Kaitaki carry both passengers and vehicles and make up to 11 crossings a 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 on board Wi-Fi. Interislander. The journey is even better than getting there.
