The most picturesque way to travel between New Zealand’s North and South Islands is by the Interislander Cook Strait ferry service. Sailing several times per day in each direction between Wellington (North Island) and Picton (South Island), the beautiful 3 to 3.5 hour journey is the best way to see Wellington Harbour, the Cook Strait and Marlborough Sounds.
