The ferry will dock at Picton, a nice sunny seaside town in the Marlborough Sounds. It is the perfect location to use as a launching pad to experience all that the Queen Charlotte Sound offers; jump on a mail boat cruise, take an eco-tour to Motuara Island Bird Sanctuary, kayak in the tranquil waters
of Anakiwa or spend the day at a lodge enjoying the local seafood. There are nature reserves and a range of local bush walks with varying degrees of difficulty, all offering spectacular views, or travel by boat to walk the famous Queen Charlotte Track, deep in the heart of the Queen Charlotte Sound.
Picton is also where you will get to go on a seafood cruise in the sounds, tasting seafood and wine!
