Ferry to Picton on 6th April evening time.Is it dark?

Gutted as our flight gets in to Wellington 2pm so we will miss 2.05 ferry. We have to get 6.25pm but we specifically flew to Wellington to see the great views on the ferry!!! Will it be dark by then and will we see anything!?

Cheers

A quick google search shows that sunset will be about 1745 hours. You are lucky as NZ Summer Time starts on 5 April.

Why not stay overnight in Wellington and get the ferry early the next morning?

It wont be dark when you leave Wellington but it will be getting pretty murkey as you approach Picton. If the weather is fine ( Which is unlikely if current weather patterns continue) you may get a lovely twilight.

NZ Summer time doesnt start on 5 April, Daylight saving ceases on 5 April.

We have had 6 days of summer to date.

bean, you should come to Christchurch! The weather is much better. We have had 7 days, about 20% more!

Keep heading south. Wanaka has enjoyed brilliant weather the last few weeks... and it continues :)

Mike I will see you at Easter but unfortuantely WL I cant get further south on this trip.

I am even giving up my seats at the Stadium where the Hurricanes will blow away the Crusaders on Good Friday night to spend time with the Cycloptic disbelievers and my halo is not even tarnished or slipping.
