Save on Cook Strait ferries with Bluebridge

Issue date

Bluebridge ferries are sailing again on their full winter schedule, which means they're back to 50 sailings a week from downtown Wellington to the Sounds (and back).

If you're heading south during the week, their popular night sailing with the sleeper service is also available again.

While social distancing is no longer required, customers can rest assured that their ships and terminals will continue to be cleaned even more regularly than usual and hand sanitiser is still freely available.

If you would still prefer your own space, you can pre-book one of their private cabins with ensuite.

As a precaution, when customers check in, they will be given a disposable boarding pass. There is also a QR code you can scan to enable easier contact tracing if required. Bluebridge can now accept cash but recommend cashless payments in the terminal and on board the ships.

Bluebridge have resumed table service from their range of meals freshly prepared by onboard chefs and their delicious winter menu is now available alongside barista made L’Affare coffee and other hot and cold drinks.

New happy campers deal: save 20 percent

Bluebridge want to play their part to help Kiwis do something new and see more of their own backyard so have come up with an awesome offer for Yachting New Zealand member card holders who own their own camper or have snapped up one of the great hire deals.

If you set sail with your motorhome, caravan, 5th wheeler, or other home on wheels by 31 October 2020, you'll save 20 percent on the whole booking.

You’ll get the discount off any of Bluebridge's fare types, including their lowest Saver Sail fare. If you take the kids, you’ll save even more with their family discount on top. Offer ends 31 July. Terms and conditions apply.

There’s still time for them to win their money back

Bluebridge's winter roadie competition is still running and they’ll draw more lucky winners in July and August. To be in to win, member card holders just need to use their SAILOR promo code when booking for travel from now until the end of August.

You'll automatically be in to win the cost of your ferry fares back plus $300 Z fuel. Each monthly draw will include everyone who has booked during that month. Terms and conditions apply. It’s Bluebridge's way to thank Kiwis for backing us.
