Interislander Family Timmy and Fritha RH7846

Travel for less with our super family discount ferry fares!

Kids love to go cruisin' on the Interislander. For many Kiwis, it is one of their first travel memories. Our ships are packed with fun entertainment - movies, play areas and, during the holidays, magicians  and clowns. Not to mention our famous activity book or colouring competition. There is always the chance they may spot whales, dolphins, gannets, albatross and more!

To make it easier for families to travel we offer family discount ferry deals. Booking is easy - we calculate them for you!
