On the Bluebridge Cook Strait ferry we do all we can to ensure every passenger’s needs are well looked after. From one-on-one assistance to wheelchair access and private cabins –simply let us know what you need and we’ll do our best to help.
The Straitsman has full wheelchair access in all areas, while wheelchair access onboard the Strait Feronia is more limited. Please check whether our services meet your requirements on 0800 844 844 (from New Zealand), +64 4 471 6188 (international calls) or email us at Bluebridge.Bookings@straitnz.co.nz
We offer free travel for guide dogs and mobility dogs, who can access all public areas of our ships.
The Straitsman offers private wheelchair-friendly cabins containing height adjustable beds with large accessible en suites. All cabins come complete with bed linen and towels.
The cabins have two sets of bunks and one lower bunk has an electrically elevating bed, which at its lowest height is compatible with a wheelchair transfer. At its highest it’s a good height for an attendant carer to assist with changing or dressing. The head and middle of the bed are adjustable to support sitting in bed.
To book your own private cabin, simply ask at reception onboard before the ferry departs.
