Our group travelled from Picton to Ships Cove before walking in to the Queen Charlotte Wilderness Park. Julian, our skipper, was very friendly and gave lots of useful tips and information. Our bags were taken right through to the park Lodge and wre all waiting for us when we arrived. Three days later, we were picked up from the Lodge... More

The service was fantastic and the bag delivery/pick up worked without a hitch. I had organized a group of 18 to walk the QCT, unfortunately, 2 of us couldn’t do the actual walk because of injury so we travelled with the baggage from site to site. The crew were really friendly and helpful, pointed out features, shared anecdotes with us... More

Good commentary and we particularly liked the baggage delivery service which meant we did not have to carry too much when walking the Queen Charlotte Track

Friendly service, looked after our gear well each day, and met us with a smile each time we saw them. Bit late on the last day, picking us up from Anakiwa - because some day walkers were late getting to the boat up at Furneaux Lodge. If you expect your boat to be on time for you - please be... More

The Endeavour Express is nothing special a bit cheaper than everyone else, the only thing i have to say is maybe the staff could be a bit friendlier.

On time, picked us up from our accommodation, delivered our bags safely each day, skipper took time to slow the boat so a visitor family could see a penguin and photograph it.

15 years ago my mother and I used Endeavour Express to travel around the Queen Charlotte and we came back because we remembered it was a great service. We were delighted to find that some things don't change and we got first class treatment this time around as well. I needed help with some other aspects of the trip that... More

Friendly, fun, knowledgeable, safe, local, low-key and great value. There are several services available for accessing the Marlborough Sounds, Endeavor Express was highly recommended to us by the owners of the Gateway Motel in Picton and we didn't regret the choice. We wholeheartedly recommend this service to access the Queen Charlotte Track.

Great company to deal with - friendly and professional staff who are willing to go out of their way to help. The skipper was a cool guy - he backtracked to make sure we had a good look at the dolphins. If you're getting from Wellington to Piction via the Interislander ferry (although, personally, I think Bluebridge is better), make... More

I walked half the track and used this company to transfer my pack, which they did without problem. However, as I walked sections quicker than usually suggested, I reached my accommodation stops much earlier than anticipated and they were very disappointing. I wish I had understood the timetable options better and perhaps I could have come back to shore sooner.
