Ferry crossing information
New Zealand is made up of two large islands 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.
Bluebridge Cook Strait Ferries sail to and from Wellington/Picton 22 times a week. Your ticket also includes free extras like free movies and free WiFi. If you’d like your own space, you can book one of their private cabins with its own en-suite from NZ$30 (additional).
