Departing Picton at 9.00am, cruise to the Kaipupu Wildlife Sanctuary, where you’ll have time to walk the easy 2.7km loop track, checking the little blue penguin nesting boxes along the way. Spot the rich native birdlife and soak in the views.
You’ll have the opportunity to get up close to Motu Ngarara Island, covered in nearly a century of regenerating native bush, and learn about its fascinating history. Cruising across the calm waters of Queen Charlotte Sound, you’ll stop at the sheltered Double Cove marine reserve to feed the resident tame fish, with a backdrop of stunning native bush. This cruise will return to Picton at 11.45am
The cruise also includes a bagel with your choice of delicious Marlborough Regal salmon and cream cheese, or jam – bonus!
