Kayak the Queen Charlotte Track

We know the Marlborough Sounds. We'll take you and your kayak to remote coves where emerald water laps on fern-fringed shorelines. You'll see spotted shags, and forest birdlife above, little blue penguins in the water and perhaps a sunbathing seal. Transfer your bike or kayak with Cougar Line, or rent one in Picton, and we'll whisk you away to adventure heaven in Queen Charlotte Sound...

Paddle from one inlet to the next, picnic on the way, stay a night in a resort or campground and we'll take your luggage on ahead. When you're ready for the world, we'll stow your kayak and take you back to Picton in style.
