Open yourself to the magic of the Marlborough Sounds at Lochmara Lodge. Set on the tranquil shores of the Queen Charlotte Sound, Lochmara captures the spirit and character of the Sounds: beautiful scenery, a passion for the natural environment and the unique lifestyle.

Depart Picton around noon for a 15 minute cruise to Lochmara Lodge, taking in the stunning Queen Charlotte Sounds on your way.  Once you arrive at Lochmara choose any lunch meal off the blackboard menu & enjoy your lunch and a glass of wine while looking out over the beautiful vista that is Lochmara bay.

After lunch there will be plenty of time to wander around the property with short walks through the bush with lots of information panels on the local flora and fauna. Free use of the paddleboards & kayaks is included, and you will also be able to view the daily animal feeding before you depart Lochmara at 2.45pm. The option to catch the later boat can also be arranged.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

Alex from Chuffed was fortunate enough to have a family Bach in the Marlborough Sounds growing up, just a few bays around from Lochmara Lodge. When we were adding South Island partners in 2021, his memories of exploring the Bush & water around the lodge made adding these guys a no brainer! A hugely popular option for couples, friends & families, Lochmara is super special & needs to be experienced to be fully appreciated!
