Ride the InterIslander ferry from Wellington to Picton, cruising from the North Island to the South Island via Cook Strait. Depart the vibrant harbor city of Wellington for the shores of quaint Picton, nestled in Queen Charlotte Sound at the heart of the Marlborough Sounds.
Experience the dramatic beauty of the region steeped in forest-clad hills, and view both islands from the ferry deck. Snap photos of the Kaikoura Ranges and search the sparkling waters for marine life such as seabirds, dolphins, seals, whales and orcas.
Upon reaching Picton, disembark at this South Island hub, gateway to the Marlborough region.
Note: This InterIslander ferry option does not allow travel with your vehicle.
