Is the ferry crossing between islands in NZ rough?

Jump to last reply

In all my trips to NZ, I've yet to take the ferry between the North and South Islands.

I'm the type who gets sick just thinking about boats, so I've never been inclined (although I have taken the ferry to Stewart Island, a chum inducing roller coaster ride).

I'm thinking about taking the ferry on my next visit, but wondering if I'm just looking for trouble.

Comments from anyone who's take the ferry would be much appreciated.
