That’s what they say and there’s really no better way to see Wellington than from on board the Dominion Post East by West Ferries! The harbour ferries run from their superb central waterfront location at Queens Wharf in front of their ticket office in the Meridian Building. There are up to 16 return sailings everyday out to Days Bay & Matiu Somes Island. In the weekends and public holidays (fine

weather permitting), the ferries also run Harbour Explorer Tours calling in at Petone, Matiu Somes Island, Days Bay, Seatoun & Queens Wharf. These trips are very popular and quickly are becoming a ‘must do’ for visitors to the capital! The catamaran ferries carry up to 99 passengers and have a fantastic viewing from their open top decks. Inside the main cabin you can buy coffee, tea,

snacks and icecreams as well as beer and wine from the bar onboard. The ferries are also available for evening charters with a range of different options. You won’t find friendlier crew than on the ferries, nothings a problem.
