I am looking out the window right now at a grey rainy day here at home. Thank you for sweeping me away to the beauty of Cook Straight.

Oh my. The boat ride sounds less than glamorous. The views look worth it though!

I’m sorry you felt bad!! I’ve had experienced that before and it is NOT fun!!! It is a little nerve wracking because you never know when that will happen! Some boat rides are easy!! The photos sure are awesome though….love them!

Oh you poor thing, I can’t remember being sick on that journey myself but it sounds like you had a bit of a horrific time. You’re right though, the views seemed well worth it – beautiful pictures!

Whilst your photographs are amazing and the scenery looks beautiful, I definitely wouldn’t have managed that journey. I always get sick on boats haha, you’re a brave lady! Glad you managed to enjoy the surroundings.

The views are stunning, but I don’t know that I could handle being on a ferry that long. We took a 90 minute ferry in Belize and it was bad enough. I guess I would make do though if it meant getting to explore a tropical paradise like this!

Oops!!! 4.5hrs ferry ride, that’s painful!!! We’ve taken a ferry from Europe to UK and that was about 1.5 hrs and I could manage that! I was so sleepy a couple times in the middle of night and was enjoying the seabreeze in the upper deck one early morning! But 3 times that, I dunno how I would have felt!

That’s a long, long ferry ride and I would definitely doze off for sure. 🙂 Must say the views are fantastic and so are the photos. It’s sad to know that you had sea sickness during the trip. Feeling sick during travel can sometimes ruin the day. The lovely views might have been a respite.

I have worked in an international cruise ship but I did not get seasick. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same thing when taking a ferry. You can feel the movement of the rough sea right away.
Your ferry ride was really long but the photos are worth it. They are lovely and breathtaking. I like the first photo the most.

I am so sorry your health broke down so badly while on the sea. The magnificent view sure made up for all the bad experience you have had. The photos are all very amazing!

I have been on a ferry in Koh Chang, Thailand recently but it was only for about 45 minutes. This looks really lengthy and since you became sea-sick, I am sure it would have become difficult to enjoy the way you wanted it. The pictures are nice and the views are lovely.

Wow those landscapes are gorgeous. It’s even more amazing that they took your motorhome on the ferry too. That’s a great idea and way to see NZ. Did you bring yours from the US or did you rent a motorhome in NZ?

We rented.

Ah the joys of seasickness. I recall a host of locals struggling with same on a Ferry from Dili to Atauro Island (despite the waters being a still as glass).

It really doesn’t make for a fun time, but true to reputation, those views are stunning!

Thanks for reading, Chris!

The place is surreal. I can relate to your sea sickness. I travelled long haul on a plane for my trip to Europe and towards the end of the journey I was feeling like why I ever thought of visiting here!
