Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the InterIslander Ferry - Wellington to Picton submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
A leisurely cruise seeing the coastlines of both islands up close. Very comfortable with good on-board facilities. The only bad point was that all the freshly baked scones had been sold when we went to the cafe. However, the scrambled eggs were perfect.Reviewed by: NANETTE O, Ireland, April 2010
All went smoothly.Reviewed by: Emilio R, Australia, July 2007
We took the ferry as part of a day trip to the South Island to go wine tasting, and it was a gorgeous trip. The ferry itself is nice, with movies, food, etc to pass the time comfortably, but the best part of the journey is the beautiful scenery as you travel through the sound. There were plenty of outside and window seats to have a drink and enjoy the view, and it was a very relaxing trip.Reviewed by: Kelly G, USA, November 2006

Absolutely beautiful scenery - a must do tour.Reviewed by: David D, May 2013
beautiful 3+ hour ride between the islands. Worth the time. However, there is no other reason to go to Wellington. A typical small city, nothing specialReviewed by: David F, April 2013
Even although the weather was not very good, the scenery is breathtaking.
The ferry was very busy but remained clean, tidy and pleasant
Nice viewsReviewed by: Juantorena C, March 2011
Provided the weather is good this is a problem free journey with incredible scenery and enough to keep you occupied on the journey!Reviewed by: John E, Canada, March 2010
It was alright, nothing to rave about, but nothing to complain about either.Reviewed by: Claudio C, Italy, January 2008
