You can take a flight from the North to the South island of New Zealand. That might be a bit quicker but you will miss the experience of traveling by ferry; the rear-view of Wellington and the approaching views of Picton, the arrival point in South Island, are noteworthy. InterIslander’s “Aratere”, the ferry we took across, was extremely comfortable and well-stocked. We appreciated that our new-found obsession with ciders was supported on board.
