We took the ferry as part of a day trip to the South Island to go wine tasting, and it was a gorgeous trip. The ferry itself is nice, with movies, food, etc to pass the time comfortably, but the best part of the journey is the beautiful scenery as you travel through the sound. There were plenty of outside and window seats to have a drink and enjoy the view, and it was a very relaxing trip.
Fun ride, but pouring rain the entire time and foggy.....hope to try again someday!
beautiful 3+ hour ride between the islands. Worth the time. However, there is no other reason to go to Wellington. A typical small city, nothing special
Even although the weather was not very good, the scenery is breathtaking.
The ferry was very busy but remained clean, tidy and pleasant
Provided the weather is good this is a problem free journey with incredible scenery and enough to keep you occupied on the journey!
It was alright, nothing to rave about, but nothing to complain about either.

The trip was very good, good views but I expect the calm crossing had a lot to do with this.
Great way to get from the north to the south island. Great scenery, particularly upon entering the southern channel. On the morning ferry, it was a bit hazy the first part of the trip. But it was a very reasonable cost.
This was a very rough trip, though that's not your fault. We just hit a spot of bad weather.
Views great but boat a bit old and tired. Not nearly enough seats where you can view out.
