Cougar Line has been transporting passengers and goods to lodges, resorts and homes around Queen Charlotte Sound/Tōtaranui, and to the Queen Charlotte Track, for decades.

Established in the early 1990s, Cougar Line was purchased by the locally-owned Marlborough Tour Company in 2018. 
Marlborough Tour Company Group also owns Furneaux Lodge and Punga Cove in Endeavour Inlet, along with Pelorus Mail Boat in Havelock.

As Marlborough people, we know and love this place and have continued to maintain Cougar Line’s reputation as a professional, friendly and reliable water transport operator for visitors and locals alike.

Our local staff’s valuable in-depth local knowledge and experience ensures Cougar Line offers a smooth and fast regular water transport service to almost anywhere within Queen Charlotte Sound/Tōtaranui.
Whether you’re a local heading to your Marlborough Sounds home or bach, or a visitor exploring our beautiful part of the world for the first time, Cougar Line will ensure your Marlborough Sounds trip goes to plan.
