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.

Arahura, Aratere 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 plenty to see and do.

To make the most of your Interislander journey why not try a few of our fantastic offers onboard.

Premium Plus lounge - If you’re 18 years and over, for just $45 you can cruise in style in the Interislander Premium Plus lounge. Available on Aratere and Kaitaki, the lounge includes:

• Even more comfortable seating
• Complimentary Newspapers and Magazines
• Complimentary range of food and beverages including tea, coffee, beer and wine.

Book a Private Cabin – for $40
On our Kaitaki sailings private cabins are available and particularly suited to families or those who need to catch up on sleep between islands. The cabins are four berth, have ensuite facilities and are fully serviced with linen, towels and soap.
