Interislander Family Timmy and Fritha RH7846

Travel for less with our family discount ferry fares

For many Kiwis, cruisin' on the Interislander is one of their first travel memories.

Our ships are packed with entertainment - movies, play areas and, during the holidays, magicians and clowns. Not to mention our free activity book and colouring competition. And there is always the chance of spotting whales, dolphins, gannets and albatross during the journey.

To make it easier for families to travel we offer family discounts. Booking is easy - we calculate them for you.
