Thanks so much to Jill and her crew from Cougar Line for helping to make our day cruising the beautiful Marlborough Sounds so wonderful. The service was fantastic from start to finish. The Australians in our group were most impressed!!! Would definitely recommend Cougar Line to all.

We used Cougar Lines for pretty much all of our getting around while we were in the Queen Charlotte Sound. It was extremely easy to use and the service was excellent. They don't operate to a precise time table, since they not only ferry people around the sound, but make deliveries and provide services for the accommodations and residents in the area, but you are never left waiting for long. The service on the boat is really friendly with commentary about the surrounding area and the stops and tea and coffee offered on the larger boats.

Cougar lines provided transport for a recent 5 day break in Queen Charlotte Sound. The service was great, always on time, and our skipper provided some interesting commentary along the way. A great service.

These folks care about you, and your luggage. No missteps and plenty of opportunities for them. Very personable and accommodating -- they'll drive you to your car!

Our ferry arrived late coming into Picton and when we arrived at the offices, in our car, the boat was scheduled to leave in 5 minutes. We were resigned to the fact that we wouldn't make the boat
as we needed to drop our car off at a storage area. This meant that we would miss the first part of our 3 day scheduled walk. But that didn't happen ! The Cougar staff promptly took our bags and offered to drop the the car off for us. Amazing service - beyond the call of duty..
