An Interislander ferry cruise is the perfect way to get yourself from North to South in New Zealand, especially for those touring the country in a car or motorhome. Simply drive on, park up, then sit back and enjoy the ride. This 92km cruise promises breathtaking views from up on deck.

There are three ships in the Interislander fleet - the Kaitaki, the Aratere and the Arahura. Each one is equipped with wi-fi, a shop, cafes, bars, and a children's play area, plus a wide variety of activities at the onboard Kid's Club. You can even enjoy a movie during the three hour crossing, and with up to 11 sailings a day, the timetable is as flexible as you are.

For those staying in and around Wellington and Picton, Interislander also offer day excursions. Enjoy all the beauty of this wonderful cruise, with the added bonus of a tailor-made gourmet wine experience, a trip to the Zealandia natural paradise, a serene, relaxing fishing trip, or a half day kayaking adventure. Whatever floats your boat!
