the ferry from Picton

The Interislander ferry from Picton arrives into the Wellington Harbour. It connects the North to the South Island, the 92km voyage takes 3 hours and it is said to be one of the most beautiful rides in the world. I haven’t tried it yet… just ferryspoting for now…

  1. I couln’t have enough of your wonderful sailing boots picture! Thank you the nice sea atmosphere!

  2. I’d like to do the trip one day – minus kids!
    What fascinates me about this photo is the funny little dark blue tub in between the fibreglass pretties – I’d love to meet its owner!

  3. I’ve taken that trip. It was a riot, especially for fans of projectile vomiting. I don’t get seasick but a lot of people around me did. Adults seem to manage the nausea but the kids get caught by surprise. I’ve never seen anything like it.
    It’s all in a day’s work for the crew. They stand by in the cabins equipped to help those with green gills. Crew told me that was a fairly calm trip.
    What I saw of the scenery was great but the visibility was bad most of the trip.
