On this cruise through an incredibly scenic part of New Zealand, you'll depart from the port of Picton at 1:30pm on a journey to not only take in all the wonderful fiord-style greenery, but to join the skipper in delivering the mail to the families that live at areas dotted throughout the Sound. Relax and enjoy the detailed onboard commentary documenting the history and geography of the Queen Charlotte Sound and the Marlborough region as a whole, while taking in local sights such as the Perano Whaling Station, the historic Ship Cove - a favourite stop of Captain James Cook - and various other vessels plying their trade amongst the waters.

Be sure to keep an eye out for marine and bird life - including dolphins and New Zealand Fur Seals - along the way; bring your camera as you'll have some great photo opportunities to take in!
