Overview

Treat yourself to a relaxing day at historic Ship Cove on this Ship Cove Day in the Sounds trip from Picton in New Zealand's Marlborough region.

Captain James Cook named this area Ship Cove when his ship, The Endeavour, anchored here on January 15, 1770 to refresh his provisions of water, food and wood. Between 1770 and 1777, Ship Cove would become Captain Cook’s favourite anchorage, returning to this area four more times.

Enjoy the moment to splash in the creek where Captain Cook made his crew some home brew. Wander on the beach and get the chance to meet its resident wildlife, or simply laze around and soak up the stillness. Don’t forget to capture this moment with a photo beside the Captain Cook memorial marking his historic stopovers to this area.

From the Ship Cove, it’s just a 1 km. walk to the waterfall through thick native vegetation, so try not to skip it.

In the afternoon, climb back aboard your vessel and weave your way through Endeavour Inlet to view Punga Cove Resort and Furneaux Lodge before making your way back to Picton.
