The Cook Strait is an important transportation link between the South Island and the North Island of New Zealand. Cross-island self-driving requires a ferry. Most of the ferry routes follow the coast and islands, so the scenery on both sides of the strait is still very beautiful. The ferry takes 3.5 hours. Very worth experiencing
This is my first ferry ride. It is a bit new and unknown. In the past few days, I have been struggling with how to get from the hotel to the pier. We walked to the pier once to consult, and walked to the pier in 50 minutes. Later, it was too hard to drag luggage on foot. I wanted to take a bus again, but I had to go to the train station to change. It was still troublesome to drag my luggage. I finally decided that I asked the hotel to book a taxi for me the night before and picked us up on time at 7 o'clock in the morning. There is no fixed seat on the ferry. Just sit on it. I first took a picture on the deck. When I came down to find a seat, there was no place to sit, but I found it later. There is a buffet on the boat, which is not free. You can see the staff at any time, you can consult, and it seems that there are staff who can speak Chinese. In short, a very good experience.
The journey was blocked, and I got on the boat in time, only to feel the hardship. But anyway, this time, in Wellington, it was really super fun. Ferry here, very nice, nice view...
The ferry traversed the Cook Strait and built a bridge between the north and south islands.
Generally, like other fjords, narrower ones are better
