Interislander is an extension of State Highway 1, linking road and rail networks between the North and South Island
As New Zealand’s original Cook Strait ferry service, we stand out with over 50 years of experience.
Our three ferries make around 4,000 sailings each year and cater for commercial trucks, livestock, refrigerated units, hazardous goods, over-dimensional freight and machinery.
With a specialised tug and drive on/drive off services, we ensure your trailer units are efficiently loaded and transported.
There are some changes coming up at the Wellington ferry terminal from which affect our commercial vehicle customers travelling to Picton. This includes the
relocation of the CV marshalling yard, check-in kiosk and weighbridge, scheduled for around 9 November. Download the map

Please arrive at the ferry terminal 60 minutes prior to the scheduled time of departure. Trucks and trailers must be set up and ready to travel prior to arrival at the terminal.
Due to operational considerations such as load planning, stowage and timetable adherence, vehicles arriving within 30 minutes of departure may not be accepted for the sailing.
