Transferring to the Queen Charlotte Track is easy with Cougar Line – simply come on board with us, hand us your bag or your mountain bike and we’ll take you to any access point along the track.

We offer scheduled one-way or return transfers from Picton to any access point along the track between Ship Cove/Meretoto and Anakiwa in Queen Charlotte Sound/Tōtaranui, with the option of transferring between sections of the track or accommodation by boat during your stay.

If you’re unsure about which sections of the track you’d like to walk or mountain bike, or where the best place to start and end is, talk to us: Our friendly staff’s years of local knowledge will help clarify your plans.

Plus, carry only what you need for the day - we’ll take your luggage on to your lodge, private holiday home, or campsite along the track, so you can experience the track in freedom.

See our timetable to plan and contact us to book.
