Welcome to East by West Ferries, a cornerstone of maritime transportation in Wellington Harbour since 1989. We’ve been steadfast in our commitment to providing reliable, efficient and dynamic ferry services for over 30 years. Whether you’re a daily commuter, a curious traveller, or an event organiser, we invite you to embark on a journey with us.


Contracted by Greater Wellington, we play a small but vital role in the region’s public transportation system. Our ferries shuttle commuters from Days Bay to Wellington City in the mornings and back home in the evenings, offering a seamless and picturesque journey across the harbour.
