Interislander ferry

All our tours are arranged so that you drop one rental car at either Picton or Wellington and collect a replacement car on arrival to the other side. This is a very easy process and luggage on board the ferry is checked in the same way you would for a plane flight.
Taking a car on the Interislander ferry is expensive so this saves you the cost.

Interislander ferrys have up to 5 crossing per day between Wellington and Picton and vice versa. Schedules can change so please check but the first ferry usually departs Wellington around 9am. We will make the relevant booking for you to ensure this fits in with your day. The ferry crossing time is around 3 hours.
