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.

Absolutely the best trip today! Highly recommend Hamish n Gary from Green Mussel Cruise in Havelock. Two very dedicated and humorous gents to guide tourists on a boat trip up Kenepuru Sound from Havelock! A wonderful day with a feast of Green Shell Mussels ...a ripper of a day!! Thank you Hamish n Gary for a splendid day!

We booked this trip last minute knowing that it was going to be a bit grey and drizzling but hoping for the best.... what a gorgeous way to spend an afternoon!! John and Andrew were wonderful, they sailed us around the beautiful coast line and told us and showed us everything there is to know about mussel farming before cooking up the most mouthwatering feast of green shell mussels and beautiful wine!! Utterly gorgeous and the best mussels we have ever eaten!!! Thank you both!!!! :)
