Embark on a paw-some Cook Strait adventure with your pooch when you pre-book one of
Bluebridge’s dedicated dog-friendly cabins. They understand that your furry friend is an important
part of your family, and that’s why they welcome dogs aboard their vessel Connemara in their dog-
friendly cabins.

As you and your beloved pooch set sail, you’ll be treated to breath-taking scenery, creating
memories that will last a lifetime. Their experienced and friendly crew ensure your comfort and
safety throughout the journey, providing a seamless sailing experience for both you and your pooch.

By pre-booking a dedicated dog-friendly cabin you’ll have your own space to enjoy with your pooch
and you can rest, relax, and have a hot shower before the next leg of your journey. All their cabins
have complimentary fresh linen, towels, and body wash. When you’re not enjoying the comfort of
your cabin you can head outside to the dedicated dog exercise area for some fresh air and to take in
the picturesque views. Outside of your cabin your dog will need to be on a leash but inside the cabin,
they’re free to roam around supervised.

While onboard, take a moment to unwind and indulge in the comforts of their cafe and bar.
Delicious food freshly prepared by their onboard chefs. You’ll be spoilt for choice with a range of
kiwi-inspired and modern dishes, great coffee, freshly baked breads, and tempting sweets. While
your pooch can’t unwind in the main passenger areas with you, you can enjoy your meal in your
private cabin.

With their dog-friendly cabins, great Kiwi service, freshly prepared food, a kids area and free WiFi, as
well as the opportunity to explore stunning destinations on either side of the Cook Strait, your
journey becomes more than just a ferry ride—it becomes an unforgettable experience for you and
your pooch.

Cook Strait!
