Did this as a tour from Celebrity Solstice. We weren’t sure what to expect, but everything exceeded our expectations. The catamaran was beautiful and spacious. Plenty of room to move about. The commentary was first class and we got some amazing views in Marlborough Sound. And then the best part, marvellous fresh mussels as many as you wanted washed down with a glass of NZ Sav Blanc.
If you get a chance do this tour. You will not be disappointed.

It has been a fantastic afternoon despite a cloudy sky. The crew was very nice, friendly, with excellent commentaries regarding the area and, of course mussels. The fresh cooked mussels were excellent as well as wines, especially Sauvignon white wine. All perfect ! Congratulations to the crew. We thoroughly recommend this tour.

Thank you for a wonderful day. The crew were friendly, genuine and enthusiastic, with excelllent commentary as we cruised around the serenely beautiful Marlborough Sounds. There was something pretty special about seeing the mussels harvested and minutes later enjoying them cooked fresh on the boat and washed down with a delicious glass of sav blanc! High recommend this trip. You won't regret it

We booked this trip in UK over 5 months ago and we were not disappointed from start to end.
Part of the trip was visiting two wineries with tasting and over a 3 hour cruise with more wine and mussels (freshly caught and cooked) for those that wanted.
Hamish - driver, guide and boat skipper - was excellent with a wealth of information about the area and the musse!s.
His partner Gary was both funny and a mind of local knowledge.
Thanks to both for a very enjoyable day.
