Connecting New Zealand for 55 years!


Travelling across Cook Strait with Interislander through the stunning Marlborough Sounds is purely unforgettable. Interislander has been described as “the most beautiful ferry journey in the world” and ranks on TripAdvisor as one of the Wellington’s top activities. With over 55 years’ crossing the Strait, Interislander ferries aren’t just a ferry, they are a New Zealand icon.

Interislander passengers are treated to some spectacular hospitality too. With bars, cafes, foodcourts, shops, cinemas, outdoor viewing decks, and play areas, passengers are provided with choice once onboard. An upgrade to the Interislander Plus lounge offers comfy sofas with food and wine.

Conveniently located next to State Highway 1, Interislander’s large ships are likely to be the first thing to greet you when entering Wellington. Our ships are the only ferries on the Strait with bow and stern doors – you can drive straight-on and straight-off! So those hiring campervans and motorhomes needn’t be worried about driving on to the Interislander ferry!

We also have all the major car rental firms located within our terminals and we connect with national bus and train services – so however you are travelling around New Zealand, you can connect with Interislander.
