The first sailing, across Cook Strait, on the Kaitake ferry took a slightly different route. Usually the ferries enter the Marlborough Sounds through Tory Channel (click here for a map) but for some reason we went the longer way via Brothers Islands. It would have been interesting except for the low visibility.

The crossing was quite smooth as was the return journey - one of the smoothest I've ever been on.

I've posted here and here about some of our trip, there may be more posts over the next week or so.
