Pelorus Mail Run Cruise - Marlborough Sounds

Pelorus Mail Run *** Extremely highly rated***

On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays you have the opportunity to join the world famous Pelorus Mail Run in the Marlborough Sounds.

Leaving Havelock Marina, you’ll visit isolated homesteads nestled in quiet secluded bays, delivering crucial supplies and mail the same way it has been done for decades.

View mussel farms and see why Pelorus Sound is the mussel capital of the world. Old timers row out in dinghies to meet us, while some receive their supplies on tiny, unspoilt beaches.

The people of the Marlborough Sounds are as much a part of the area as the history and majestic beauty.

Join us on our mail boat for the experience of a lifetime. Let us take you on our spectacular mail run or drop you at your accommodation in the Marlborough Sounds.

This is authentic tourism in New Zealand at its best.

A Wonderful Experience

If you are near Havelock in the north of the South Island of New Zealand, make sure you take a trip on the Pelorus Mail Boat. You will have a memorable and very enjoyable day.

Worth the time

Skipper Jim and his crew provided us a very memorable experience. When we stopped at the docks to deliver mail and groceries, they donned their Xmas stockings and sang Merry Christmas to their customers upon arriving. In return, people on the docks greeted us with Christmas songs and even dressed up their goat, dogs and miniature horse to make the day of the Mailboat crew and passengers. Even more exciting was their enthusiasm!! They extended the boat tour to take us over to see the bottle-nosed dolphins. Pure joy. I would highly recommend this experience to every one who would like to see spectacular scenery and also get a fun history lesson.

Great trip to get a local view of the area

Great trip to get a local view of the area, entertaining commentary and stories of local knowledge. Boat itself was very comfortable and well equipped and you really get to see a lot of the area.
