When is the best time to cruise New Zealand?
Both of the North and South islands of New Zealand enjoy a maritime climate, with consistently moderate weather and temperatures. Dominated by the mountains and seas, New Zealand does see a relatively high amount of rain compared to its neighbouring island Australia. This however is soon outweighed by plenty of sunshine throughout the year, especially in the summer months which fall between December and February. Between March and May, autumn can still bring exceptional weather and blue skies that are lined with sun. The unpredictable spring visits the Kiwis in September to November and all weather types are sure to be expected. Finally, June to August brings the winter, where cold weather and high rainfall can sweep both the North and South island. Cruisers are always advised to bring clothing to suit all seasons due to New Zealand’s famous capability of experiencing ‘four seasons in one day’!
