We left Plimmerton really early as we had heard that both ferry companies were under the pump.
Arriving almost 45 minutes early, the queues were already established so everyone else had the same idea 🙂 Just as well Bluebridge were letting people in early.

I sort of look forward to the ferry crossing but always with some nervousness of getting Rafe on and getting across to Picton without damage but so far, there’s never been an issue.
Getting a cabin was an exceptional idea as as soon as we got on board and got our cabin, we were off to a shower and a tidy up before getting something to eat and drink.
The weather was looking good and we were looking forward to an easy sailing.
We spent quite a bit of time up on deck taking it all in. I was amazed by the number of windmills on the hills along the coast.
We arrived in Picton on time and headed for a Road Café just south of Blenheim for a cuppa and something to eat before we cruised on to Kaikoura. A very pleasant crossing.
