“Picton Ambassadors”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Several volunteers "meet 'n greet" arriving tourists off Cruise Ships visiting Picton. Feb 19th was the Volendam en route from Wellington - Akaroa. Australians, English, Welsh, Americans, Canadians and a mixture of other nationalities. Guests to Picton given a small colour co-ordinated rosette on disembarking and then we (Picton Ambassadors) essentially act as "on-ground roving hosts" making sure our guests are made especially welcome. Directions, help or just a chat is all it takes. It's fun and they love the personal touch and being made welcome and special in a special place....the coolest little port in the world - PICTON!

“beautiful surroundings, a green fjordland”
Reviewed 6 February 2012

Had great diving on a wreck and fishreserve with Nine Dives who gave us a tour of the amazing Marlborough Sounds, we even climbed in a "secret" gold mine that you could only reach by boat, saw seals and later diolphins back on the watertaxi trip back from Lochmara

“Gorgeous Scenery”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

Drove up along the sounds and the ride was so lovely. Nicer on a clear day to see across the sound but on this drizzly day it was still an attraction.
