Do not miss this area when in New Zealand! Sailing, walks, cycling, nature and opportunities to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life

Marlborough Sound is stunning and well worth a visit. We went on a cruise around the sound and enjoyed visiting remote inlets and seeing the coastline. Even on a grey, windy day it is worth a visit.

So much to explore. The veiws are exceptional. Walking tracks are well maintained. Kayaking on the sounds is a great experience. A couple of days was not enough time

We did the mail delivery cruise and it was excellent. The skipper/driver/postman was informative throughout the trip and ensured we learned a lot about the area. I even delivered the post and importantly fed the local dogs at each drop off point.
