Cruise return times may vary as we pick up and drop off passengers and supplies along the route.

Take a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at daily life in the unique and isolated Marlborough Sounds as we deliver goods and passengers to far-flung jetties and corners of Queen Charlotte Sound/Tōtaranui.

This 3-hour cruise is a great opportunity to see the Marlborough Sounds through the eyes of those who live and work here.

Discover places far from the nearest road, and maybe meet some of the locals who call this isolated and beautiful place home. Relax onboard our comfortable vessel as we deliver passengers and supplies to homes, secluded resorts and the Queen Charlotte Track, keeping an eye out for seals, penguins, dolphins, stingrays and rare sea birds.

Learn about the Marlborough Sounds’ history and natural world from your friendly skipper and crew, and enjoy free tea and coffee.
 This cruise will take you to corners of the Sounds rarely seen by visitors – no cruise is ever the same.
