Walk was easy for us 70-year olds. 11.5 k and took us 3.5 hours including a picnic lunch at one of a number of picnic tables en route. Absolutely awesome views all the way. Had plenty of time at Punga Cove to enjoy a beer and coffee before the boat picked us up. A great day.

Hello Roderick B Thanks very much for your great review on TripAdvisor - we are really happy to hear that you had an enjoyable day out on the Queen Charlotte Track. Its a great walk between Furneaux Lodge and Punga Cove and does have the added bonus of the lovely cafe at the end. We hope to see you in Picton again some other time, perhaps for the next section of the track?

This is a great service to get to Ship's cove to start walking the Queen Charlotte Track with free luggage transfers and pick up when finished. We were lucky to see a pod of dolphins and the boat stopped and lingered so we could watch for a bit. Very informative commentary too.

Highly recommend the day walk 12km which I did with my 6 year old. The skipper even stopped the boat when we spotted a pod of dolphins. Easy communication and would use services for pack transfer on the Totaranui Track in the future

Beachcomber Cruises offer a well organised and excellent service for walkers and bikers self guiding on the Queen Charlotte Track. I took the cruise to the start of the track along the beautiful Queen Charlotte Sound. The skipper gives a knowledgeable commentary with dry humour.
