The Interislander ferry is one of the unmissable great journeys of New Zealand, as it sails between Wellington and Picton. It’s a truly iconic experience.
There is the option to travel as a foot passenger, with upgrades available to the Plus Lounge for a more refined journey. There is also the option to travel with your car (some car rental companies require you to drop your vehicle off and pick up another on arrival). Each vessel has stacks to keep you busy with a family lounge, a cafe and bar. Journey is available in reverse. Wellington (North Island) to Picton (South Island) takes around 3½ hours. Three ferries depart daily from both Wellington and Picton with departures throughout the day.
