Directions to Bluebridge Cook Strait Ferry

The 3.5 hour journey between Wellington and Picton takes in some dramatic and beautiful scenery, so it makes sense to travel in comfort as you move between North and South Islands, and make the ferry crossing an enjoyable, memorable part of your New Zealand experience.

The Bluebridge Cook Strait Ferry takes pride in its welcoming Kiwi hospitality, delicious food and drinks, and family-friendly facilities. Children will delight in the play areas and free movies while the on-board free WiFi system will allow you to keep in touch as you're on the move.

Iconic Wellington roastery, Caffe L'affare provides the legendary Kiwi coffee. Foodies and wine-lovers will also be licking their lips at the choice of fresh baked goods, classic Kiwi and international dishes created by the on-board chefs, and a wide range of award-winning Marlborough wines.

For those wishing to up their comfort level to superior, there is the option of private cabins to unwind in. These cabins are cosy, like mini hotel rooms, with en-suite bathroom and hot shower - particularly useful if you have some travel-weary little ones, or travel-weary big ones at that!

Bluebridge makes the Cook Strait crossing up to four times a day. A range of fares is available to suit your budget.
