Nature at its Best
A Tourism New Zealand Autums Promotion. PROMO CODE:TNZAP
Translator on board.

A morning departure from Picton on your charter vessel cruising the beautiful Queen Charlotte Sound.
The first stop is to the outstanding natural beauty of Blumine Island Scenic Reserve. Now predator-free, it is a safe haven for New Zealand’s native birds and the NZ giant land snail. A short cruise and we arrive at Long Island Marine Reserve where, in the clear waters, you will see marine life including crayfish. Swim or snorkel if you wish.

We will then carry on to Ship Cove where you may absorb the raw beauty of this historic area and discover the history of Captain Cook’s visits.

A picnic lunch will be served at the most appropriate island, on the day. As we continue to Punga Cove, we will cruise past Motuara Island, a bird sanctuary and scenic reserve.

Soon we arrive at Punga Cove Resort, check in to your Kingfisher or Weka Chalet and relax before dinner in the Punga Fern Restaurant – enjoying Marlborough’s finest fresh produce, lamb and seafood. Later in the evening, view the night sky with its clear stars.

On the following morning, enjoy breakfast in the Restaurant overlooking the sea and native forest, before taking the short boat ride across Endeavour Inlet to Furneaux Lodge. Furneaux Lodge is an historic homestead in a beautiful setting beside the sea with native forest as a backdrop, and a clear sparkling river. We can enjoy a short walk to view native Rimu trees which are over 1000 years old.

After lunch at Furneaux Lodge, we continue with our return journey to Picton, viewing a mussel farm – tasting the mussels, and a local Sauvignon Blanc on board our vessel – and then a salmon farm.We transfer to Picton hoping to see dolphins as we cruise.
