Because we were on a Holland America cruise, we had only one day to try to see as much of the Marlbourough Sound as possible. This excursion surpassed all our expectations. We were picked up promptly at the dock and taken to our starting point on the beautiful sound by Mrs. Bull and met Mr. Leicester Bull and our own personal little motorboat! After some instuctions and safety tips, we headed off into the sparkling blue water to explore the spectacular sound. It was a glorious day and we saw so much of the area. We had a picnic lunch on a little beach, hiked through the forest a short way and got to see the local flora. We saw penguins swimming in the sound. It was just wonderful. And when we got back, Mr. Bull gave us a CD with the pictures of us that he had taken on the trip. Mrs. Bull got us back to the boat in plenty of time, and we boarded the Volendam feeling like we had really gotten to see and experience the beautiful sounds of South Island. This was really the best excursion ever.
