New Zealand Ferries & Water Taxis

A guide to ferry boats and water taxi transport in New Zealand

New Zealand Ferry Services

Ferry services in New Zealand provide transportation on the water for the travelling public and freight between islands. A most popular ferry service is the Wellington to Picton ferries on the Cook Strait ferries which connect travellers between the North & South Islands. In many major cities in New Zealand, ferry services operate to outer islands providing transport for both travellers and vehicles.

Water Taxis in New Zealand

For those wanting to access the more remote parts of New Zealand, water taxis provide a reliable transport service. Smaller vessels take travellers to destinations in New Zealand which can only be accessed by boat, such as hiking tracks, remote lodges and small islands. In the Marlborough Sounds a Picton water taxi service takes passengers to the Queen Charlotte Track and Marlborough Sounds Lodges. Water taxis also operate in the Abel Tasman National Park, most popular with trampers, and around Auckland Kawau Island Cruises provide transport for passengers to reach the outer Hauraki Gulf Islands.

Whatever your requirements, a reliable New Zealand ferry service for water transport provider will get you to your destination
