Which Ferry Line?


We will be traveling on December 31st from Picton to Wellington. Which ferry line is 'better', or are they all the same? We will have a car.

Thanks in advance!

1. Re: Which Ferry Line?

Bluebridge is often cheaper, which can make a difference if travelling with a car. However Interislander has far more "facilities" including a cinema. Personally I usually choose BB on price & the lack of facilities doesn't bother me as I like to spend time on deck enjoying the view.

Choose the time that suits you best, although there is often not a big difference in schedule. On 31st it might be a matter of what you get now ;-( This is peak holiday season.

Really don't think it matters.

A "movie" would not influence our decision.

Enjoy the ride and views.
