Scenic Cruises with Cougar Line
Travel along the length of the Queen Charlotte Sounds with Cougar Line as we deliver passengers and supplies to resorts, homes and hideaways along the way. Our fast, modern catamaran covers over 80 kms in approximately 3 hours during which time you can experience the charm of remote New Zealand.
Sit back and soak up the natural world of the Marlborough Sounds as the Cougar Line Catamaran sweeps you into hidden coves and historic inlets.
