In January 2020, we booked the JingCai Seafood Cruise from Picton. We sailed on the Mantra with the lovely crew: Chris, Tori and Jason. We are a family of three, and they took great care of us! We loved sailing through the Marlborough Sounds and learning about mussel farming

Alice (I think was her name), the Chinese girl assistant was great, very helpful and polite. The old guy (Andrew?) was a bit terse at times although good at cooking the mussels. Wouldn't do this tour again, but each to their own...

What a wonderful cruise! Our crew, Chris and Lexi, were fantastic! The information about the mussel and salmon farms was very interesting. And the food—mussels, salmon and bread with olive oil was very good and plentiful! Definitely a highlight of our trip!

Had a great half day cruise with Captain Chris. Very informative and relaxing. We thought we would be getting just a “taste” of the delicious local seafood. Buckets of mussels and clams and then the salmon. We cancelled dinner that night. Highly recommended.
