Ferry/ Train Throughfares
The wildly beautiful way to get between Wellington, Kaikoura and Christchurch
Ferry/ train Throughfares are a fantastic way to travel between Christchurch, Picton and Wellington. 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.
The iconic Interislander Ferry takes you through the magnificent waterways of the picturesque Marlborough sounds, across Cook Strait to the Capital. The ferry links with both north-bound or south-bound Coastal Pacific train services at Picton, with the station just a stone's throw away from the ferry terminal.
Luggage can be through-checked making your transfer to or from the ferry a breeze. To book your Ferry/ train Throughfare, simply select your departure and destination stations using the book now tool to the right.
Ferry/ train Throughfares are available over the summer season
The 2014/15 summer season commences on 26 September 2014, and carries through to 3 May 2015. Interislander Throughfares are unavailable over the winter season while the Coastal Pacific train is out of service.
