Take a day out from the city as you sail the harbour to picturesque Days Bay.

In the heart of Queens Wharf you’ll find East by West Ferries, with a floating pontoon for easy access and a comfortable vessel to relax on as you cruise for an easy 30 minutes, with views of the city as your backdrop.

Days Bay is the perfect short escape with beach to stroll, ice cream to devour, water sports on fine days, or bikes to hire for a cruise around the coast. There’s plenty of delicious eatery options when you’ve worked up a hunger, or kick back with a glass of wine as the sun sets.

Once you’ve had your fill, East by West Ferries will transport you back to the city. The crew are happy to share their local knowledge and you may even spot dolphins and other marine life frolicking in the harbour as the capital appears before you. Your city mini escape awaits!

Beautiful views and lovely ferry

I was lucky enough to have a sunny day in July, and took the 10am ferry which does the stopover at matiu island along the way. Fantastic views and very friendly staff, highly recommended for an easy trip to Day’s Bay

Beautiful

Easy booking, however I claimed the physical ticket from the counter for the operator to check. Not sure if we can just show the ticket from phone. The trip was amazing, beautiful scenery - great way to have a quick escape to Eastbourne! Will definitely recommend and repeat.

Lovely day out with the kids

We had a great trip to Days bay. Helped that the sea was calm and it was a stunning Wellington day. The boat was clean, staff were really friendly and we had a great time.

Hopeless

I booked online and then I been calling at their given number and left many messages that early morning time might not suit me and is their possibility to change as I have young child and booked the wrong time by mistake but no one answered so we missed the ferry as could not reach by then and the ferry people never responded from last 2 weeks. Feeling so bad as I really wanted to ...
