NZMCA

When Bluebridge’s first ship, the MV Santa Regina, set sail on her maiden voyage across Cook Strait in early 2002, NZMCA members were there among the very first passengers – and you’ve been with us ever since. For more than 15 years, we’ve ferried motorhomes, caravans, fifth wheelers and the intrepid Kiwis who drive them from downtown Wellington to Picton (and back) 50 times a week.

The first to offer NZMCA travellers the best possible fare – in fact we offer members the best fare across Cook Strait full stop - we’re also the only ferry offering Airpoints Dollars™.
