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.

What a wonderful experience

My hubby and I are on holiday from South Africa and really want to experience as much of Wellington as we can and booked the Days Bay trip as one of our adventures. Wow..... The crew was brilliant, helpful and friendly. That ferry glided over the water so smoothly even in the wake of a much bigger boats, anchored by both docks swiftly and my elderly husband with severe osteoporosis in the knees where assisted on and off. WELL DONE EAST BY WEST FERRIES. By the way the lady in the office is a just as great.

Unforgettable

I live in Wellington for a while, but never tried Days Bay- East by west ferries. Last week we use the ferry service. I can confidently give without an iota of doubt 5 stars. Great service, professional staff. They proudly represent Wellington tourism. If you visit/live Wellington, must try this.

Good Ferry Rides

The did a great job. It was a fun day in and around Wellington. The Bookme reservations worked fine. Two members of the East by West staff (Caitlyn and Katie) really helped us out during the day.
