I heard about the Seafood Odyssea Cruise while researching on a holiday to the Marlborough region. The same company that runs the very popular Greenshell mussel cruise from Havelock recently added a new cruise that leaves from Picton and travels through Queen Charlotte Sound, and with more seafood for tasting on board! I booked this cruise for 2 people 1 month prior to departure, and the cruise went ahead with just the 2 of us and 3 crew members in a modern catamaran. The captain John was very friendly and informative. We visited a king salmon farm, chased a group of dolphins, learnt how the Greenshell mussels are grown and farmed, and for afternoon tea, enjoyed a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc with Tio point oysters, smoked salmon and a massive bowl of steamed mussels with your choice of tabasco, sweet chilli sauce or soy and wasabi sauce. Everything was so fresh and delicious, especially the oysters, one of the best I have ever tasted. If you love seafood and are looking for a cruise, do not hesitate and book this - you will not be disappointed.
