Picton - Lodge to Lodge Nature Walk and Sound Cruise

Picton Scenic Boat Cruise and partial Queen Charlotte Track Walk. Stunning half day walk and scenic cruises.

Highlights

  • Experience a stunning scenic boat cruise and partial Queen Charlotte Track Walk.
  • Walk from Furneaux Lodge to breathtaking Punga Cove Resort in stunning bush.

Cruise from Picton to Furneaux Lodge where you disembark. Take the opportunity to grab a coffee or even brunch before beginning your walk to Punga Cove Resort.

This section of the Queen Charlotte Track mainly follows the coastline around Endeavour Inlet through regenerating native bush.

Once farmland, this part of the walkway has reverted to nature and the forest is once again lush and alive with the sound of birdsong.

The area is also rich with history as it was once the site of an Antimony Mine, take some time to read the interpretation panels there. Continue around the shore, with pasture land on either side and then through native forest with views right down the Inlet to the main Queen Charlotte Sound.

Upon arrival at Punga Cove Resort relax on the deck of the Boat Shed Café with a well-deserved beverage before boarding your cruise vessel at 4.00pm for your return boat journey to Picton.

Une belle excursion

La croisière en elle même a été superbe, faite par beau temps et avec un capitaine qui prend le temps d’arrêter le bateau pour nous montrer des pingouins et admirer les dauphins. Il a également pris le temps de passer par une ferme d’élevage de saumons où batifolaient des phoques. Depuis Picton nous avons rallié Ship Cove où nous avons fait un arrêt d’une vingtaine de minutes, cela a laissé le temps à ceux qui devaient débarquer de le faire et pour notre part nous nous sommes promenés sur la plage. Nous avons ensuite rallié Furneaux Lodge, lieu où nous arrêtions. Nous avons marché jusqu’à Punga Cove où le bateau nous a récupéré en fin de journée. Là encore la croisière a été magique : départ différé de 30 minutes pour admirer les dauphins et un capitaine toujours disponible pour expliquer et faire découvrir.

Worth it

Seeing a pod of dolphins when we passed by Resolution Bay made it all wortg it. It was not a quick boat trip, which was nice coz we get to see a lot of the sounds. The walk was nice too, not difficult and can be done in 3 to 4 hours. The resorts weren't that flash but nice enough. Not too touristy at this part of the year. We went with beachcombers, skipper was knowledgeable. I'd recommend this trip if you only have a day in Picton.

Disappointing

The Queen Charlotte Track is a well maintenanced path with great views. The track is free so you're only paying for the boat trip. Nothing else. The guide for the walk is very short and you can get it at every I-site. We did the lodge to lodge walk in 3 hours at a quick pace so we we're at the final destination fairly early. This is no problem but our return ferry was over an hour late. And they couldn't even say sorry. If you can get the boat trip somewhere cheaper, you must certainly do that.

Great day

Good commentary, perfect amount of time to walk the track and enjoy a smoothie in the sun at Punta resort. Even detoured towards the Dolphins on our way. All in all, very enjoyable.
