What You Can Expect
The picturesque port town of Picton at one end of the crossing is left behind as you cruise through the serene waters of Queen Charlotte Sound in the heart of the Marlborough Sounds. The sparkling clear waters and lush forests of the Sounds is breathtaking as you leave the South Island.
At the other end of the crossing is the beautiful harbor of New Zealand's capital city, Wellington (North Island). The cruise across Wellington Harbor offers a unique view of this exciting city. Nestled between surrounding hills and the glistening harbor, Wellington is a vibrant city which has retained the charm of its early colonial heritage. Wellington is alive with some of New Zealand's finest restaurants, shopping and theater - including the spectacular Te Papa Museum of New Zealand.

A wonderful way to travel between the two islands. The weather was really good and the views amazing. We stayed overnight in Picton which was a beautiful place. Thank you for arranging the travel for us at a very reasonable price.
The trip was brilliant on the Interislander -as usual. What makes it is the spectacular scenery leaving the sounds and heading to Wellington. The ferry is well equipped, you couldn't ask for anything else!
Although it's not the company's fault, the water was extremly rough during the trip and myself as well as others got sea sick.
