Experience the very best of what the stunning Queen Charlotte Sounds has to offer with this magical half day cruise exploring the historic Ship Cove.
Departing from the beautiful coastal town of Picton, take in the natural beauty of the sounds and its vast array of wildlife aboard the luxury custom built cruise ship as you make your way to Ship Cove.

Your friendly guides will be happy to share their knowledge of this historical area with you and can even show you where Captain Cook made home brew for his crew!
Once you have enjoyed the serenity of Ship Cove your journey will continue on to where is required. We often drop bags to day walkers or have additotnal stops in Bays including the Endeavour Inlet.
