A hot wait to board our ferry, we made sure we didn’t have to stand in line too long.
We chose the bluebridge ferry to get across the water from Picton to Wellington. Was a very comfortable ferry even without a cabin for a sleep.
We got food as soon as we got on the ferry which meant we had eaten by the time it set sail and could enjoy leaving the sound. The food was exceptional for ferry food.
Once we had enjoyed sailing through the sound we found a table, Evie made friends and we settled down.
For Evie it turned out to a very sociable experience with at least 3 other similar aged babies near us for her to play with. This meant she didn’t sleep and kept us busy for the full 4 hours!
If you get seasick then maybe consider taking something, or else have a sick bag handy as you leave the sound. It was calm in the sound and pretty rolling once we went out into the sea. It didn’t stop Evie wanting to crawl over the whole boat though and amuse people.
Late off the boat and we headed north to arrive late in to Paraparaumu for the night.
