Cruise the Marlborough Sounds
The Marlborough Sounds, located in the northern tip of the South Island, are a giant maze of islands, peninsulas and bays surrounded by water. While some of the arms reaching out into the seach are accessible by roads, the easiest way to get around Marlborough Sound is by boat (or air).
For over 150 years, the easiest way to reach Picton (the closest town to the sounds and the gateway for the ferry crossings between the North and South Island), to go grocery shopping and to receive the mail, is by mail boat.
This is still true today for the people living in the sounds. And for the many visitors who hike, bike and otherwise explore the Marlborough Sounds.
Explore the Marlborough Sounds with Beachcomber Cruises
Family owned and operates Beachcomber Cruises not only deliver mail and groceries to the hotels and residents, they also take visitors on day cruises around the Marlborough Sounds, drop them off at the Queen Charlotte Sound trail head and transfer people or just their luggage between the stunning resorts in the sounds.
