Loved it. Although this travel is really about mass transportation, the ride through Cook Strait is breathtaking. The ferry is comfortable and very accommodating with all of it’s cafes and such. There is plenty of room and comfortable seating options. 3 relaxing hours with an awesome crew.

The ferry was quite large and there was plenty of seating. There were places to sit at tables to eat, places to sit outside, places you could sit to be more by yourself to sleep or talk. There is a small cafe at the ferry departure station in Picton, as well as on the ferry itself. Return stations for several car rental agencies were right there in the same buildings where you arrive and depart at both Wellington and Picton. You pick up and leave cars in the ferry parking lot. We headed straight to the very front of the ferry and sat in the front row, inside, which for the most part provided good views, although the view was often blocked by those standing outside at the railing. It was easy to go outside and take pictures and come back and sit and relax. The port at Picton was particularly beautiful!

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!

The ferry trip was part of our own personal tour of the two New Zealand islands and was very enjoyable. Scenery was great, the accommodations were excellent, and the service by the employees was cheerful and helpful. Overall, a very good experience.

It was a ferry trip, nothing more, nothing less. However, this return trip the last one of the day was much more comfortable than the morning ferry to Picton. The food selection was better, as well. Because it was dark, there was no scenery to be viewed. The food and comfort level made up for it, however.

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.
