We'vy provisionallu decided to spend 3 days on QC track walking from Ship Cove to Torea Bay/Portage. The water-shuttles Endeavour Express and Cougar Line both depart from Torea Bay back to Picton around 4pm (one is 4pm the other 4.15pm). I'm a bit concerned about making this given that the timings given for the stretch from Camp Bay to Torea Saddle are around 8 hours - we'd have to set off pretty early and have no breaks to make this (plus I don't know how our walking speed will compare to their timings). Is it feasible to catch this shuttle back? Are there any other options other than expensive private shuttles?
Any thoughts gratefully received!
