 Current sailing capacity and safety measures

We’re currently operating one ship, the Straitsman, while our other ship – Strait Feronia – is at its scheduled dry dock. During Level 2 we’ll have limited passenger capacity. We know there are a lot of Kiwis keen to head across the Strait so we recommend you book your preferred sailing soon before it’s sold out.

To keep you and our crew safe, our passenger capacity is limited to allow plenty of space for social distancing. Seating onboard will be zoned to make contact tracing easier if required. Our ship and terminal are being cleaned even more regularly than usual and hand sanitiser is freely available. We’re also issuing disposable boarding passes when you check in and payment remains cashless. 

You will still be able to get food and beverages during your crossing. Our hospitality team always adhere to strict food safety guidelines. There will be a limited range of options available: hot bain marie meals including breakfast, our popular steak sandwich or fish and chips, pies, beer-battered chips, and a selection of sandwiches and cakes. Plus our yummy L’Affare coffee and other hot and cold drinks.

We look forward to welcoming you back on board soon!
