Marlborough Sounds Day Cruises

Spend your day on one of our relaxing Marlborough Sounds day cruises from Picton.

The Marlborough Sounds is a place of exceptional natural beauty. This paradise is made up of 1,500 kilometres of shoreline, beaches, bays, and native forest. You can spot dolphins, penguins, and fur seals in this wildlife abundant area. It definitely is a worthwhile destination during your New Zealand holiday.

There are plenty of day cruises to choose from. Depending on how you want to spend your holiday at the Marlborough Sounds, you can choose to explore wildlife sanctuaries like the Kaipupu Point and Motuara Island. If you're looking for a more relaxed cruise, you can choose to discover the historic Ship Cove, Captain Cook’s favourite anchorage, and enjoy lunch amidst the beautiful surroundings of Furneaux Lodge or Punga Cove Resort.
