Cruise to the starting point of the Queen Charlotte Track, historic Ship Cove/Meretoto, for this short but spectacular walk.

Explore Captain James Cook’s favourite anchorage, steeped in Māori history, before heading uphill through native tree ferns then tall beech forest, to a spectacular lookout.

Take in the panoramic views across Queen Charlotte Sound/Tōtaranui to Cook Strait, before going downhill to beautiful Resolution Bay. We’ll pick you up at the jetty at 2.45pm for the return journey to Picton.
