Kaitaki is a Māori word meaning "challenger". With the capacity to carry up to 1600 passengers, it is both the largest ship in Interislander's fleet and the largest ferry operating in New Zealand waters. Kaitaki offers a unique tourism and travel experience.
Kaitaki provides an array of options designed to enhance your journey across the Cook Strait. From the many observation decks, enjoy the magical scenery of the Marlborough Sounds and Wellington's natural harbour. Or, sample local cuisine, coffee and wines, from the many food and beverage outlets.
For children, Kaitaki offers nurseries and play areas. And from time to time during school holidays and peak seasons you may even spot magicians and clowns as part of your onboard entertainment.
Kaitaki enjoyed a significant refurbishment in 2013 and you can find more information on this project here.
