The wildly beautiful way to get from Wellington to Christchurch and Kaikoura
Combine an epic Coastal Pacific journey, right alongside soaring mountains and dramatic coastline between Christchurch or Kaikoura and Picton, with what is described as one of the most spectacular three hour cruises in the world.
Linking with the north-bound or south-bound Coastal Pacific train services at Picton, the iconic Interislander experience takes you through the magnificent waterways of the picturesque Marlborough sounds, across Cook Strait to the Capital.
Picton train station is just a stones throw away from the ferry terminal, and we will check-through your luggage making your transfer to or from the ferry a breeze.
