Experience all Marlborough has to offer this summer and get there with Bluebridge Cook Strait Ferries.

Use your exclusive show discount to get 20% off your whole booking across all fare types, brilliant!

You’ll love getting to and from Marlborough on one of our two ferries. We sail downtown Wellington to the Sounds (and back) 50 times a week. This must-do journey takes about 3.5 hours during which you’ll see some of the world’s most breath-taking scenery through the Marlborough Sounds. We're famous for our warm Kiwi hospitality and better value fares every day.

Your ticket includes the best free WiFi on Cook Strait and free movies. Plus earn Airpoints Dollars™ if you add your Airpoints account number when you book.

You’ll enjoy a full café-style menu freshly prepared by our onboard chefs that you can wash down with a Marlborough wine, craft beer or Wellington’s famous L’Affare coffee.

Why not treat yourself and upgrade to your own private cabin with ensuite from as little as $30. Perfect to rest or freshen up before or after your weekend away. Single, twin, double, four and five berth cabin options available all with linen included. We recommend you pre-book one as they’re very popular.

So, what are you waiting for? Book your backyard getaway now!
