New Zealand is made up of two large islands, ‘imaginatively’ named ‘the North Island’ and the ‘South Island’. The stretch of water between these islands is called the Cook Strait, and whilst it may not look far, it takes about 3 ½ hours to cross from one island to the other on one of the ferry services.
Escape Campervans recommends ‘Bluebridge Ferries’ who operate between Wellington and Picton.
Escape Campervans are cheaper on the ferry than other larger motorhomes, so if you’re booking your ferry crossing, make sure they know you’re with Escape. It should cost you about $120 for the camper and around $55 per person for a one way crossing and we’ll give you a voucher to book this discounted rate when you pick your van up. And it pays to book this service in advance, particularly over Christmas or during the summer period. To find out more or to book you ferry crossing, click here
