The Interislander ferry Kaitaki was more than an hour late leaving Wellington this morning.

The delay came as it dealt with extra passengers from rival operator BlueBridge, an Interislander spokeswoman said.

''It has a flow-on effect.''

The BlueBridge ferry Santa Regina is currently out of action with engine trouble.

The Kaitaki scheduled for 8.25am eventually left at 9.30am.

It is hoped the Santa Regina will be back in action next week.
