Day 2 – The Ferry Across the Straight

Cook Straight New Zealand

Ferry Crossing From Picton to Wellington

One of the great perks you get from joining NZMCA (New Zealand Motor Caravan Association) is that you get great discounts from the ferry. Both the Inter Islander and Bluebridge offer NZMCA members good discounts.

Interislander Ferry Vehicle Check in Point

We arrived at vehicle check point in 1 hour prior to sailing, it took 1 hour for us to board the ship. The sea was reasonably calm, we stayed inside the cabin most of the time as it was raining outside.

Officially onboard of the Interislander ferry

The cruise got a little bumpy out in the open sea, we got a bit dizzy from walking about in the cabin, but sort of got our sea legs after a while.

We drove up further 150kms to Palmerston North, and stayed overnight at James and Ruby’s. Thanks guys for your kind hospitality!!
