Enjoy warm Kiwi hospitality

Renowned for our warm, friendly hospitality, our crew strives to ensure passengers have their best Cook Strait Ferry crossing. Onboard features include WiFi, viewing decks, movie room, cafe and ensuite cabins.

With great food, barista coffee and award-winning NZ wines and beer, you'll be spoilt for choice. Order from a full menu prepared with love by our chefs. Whether you're sailing at breakfast, lunch or dinner, we've got the menu sorted.

The outdoor areas of our Cook Strait ferries allow for some fresh air and panoramic views of one of the world's most picturesque ferry journeys. If you can take your eyes off the scenery, kick back with free movies, WiFi and activities for the kids.

Witness Breathtaking views

From the dynamic, hilly cityscape of Wellington Harbour out through the rugged rocks and steep cliffs above the Wellington Heads, this trip is made up of spectacular contrasts!

On a clear day, you'll see the outline of the South Island as you depart Wellington. Look out for dolphins, whales and other wildlife that often keep our ferries company across Cook Strait.

As you cruise Queen Charlotte Sound towards Picton, you'll experience an area famous for its beautiful beaches, bush walks and excellent climate.

From check-in staff through to onboard hospitality crew, we know a thing or two about a great Kiwi welcome — for the Bluebridge team, it's all about making your journey a truly memorable one!
