Our tour included a boat tour of the Marlborough Sounds (Queen Charlotte Sound). We were so pleasantly surprised by this wonderful excursion. The boat and crew were great and the captain's knowledge of the inlets, nature, wildlife, and homes along the sound were quite impressive....More
The skipper was very knowledgeable on the local history, fauna and flora. It was great to meet the locals on their piers along with their dogs who were waiting their treats.
