My husband and I spent two weeks in New Zealand for our honeymoon in November. What a fantastic afternoon we had on this cruise! Captain Aussie, Kelly and the other guests made it a fun and entertaining experience as we took in the gorgeous scenery, dined on fresh mussels and oysters and learned all about fascinating world of greenshell mussel farming. And the icing on the cake? A pod of curious dolphins heard all the fun we were having and decided to swim alongside our boat! Who could ask for anything more? :)

Thanks for a wonderful afternoon!

Ryan - one of the descendants of the families who started the green mussel business is extremely knowledgeable about the business and the area... Lively, entertaining and informative information backed up by Gary.... Beautiful boat. Beautiful scenery - even in the misty rain! Mussels also delicious but not the ones intended for export (pre-cooked etc)!.

A really nice afternoon trip... well worth the money..

Had a great time exploring the beautiful sounds and learning about the incredible world ov mussel farming, the trip is fantastic not just because of the scenery and the very generous amount of beautiful fresh mussels and lovely local wine but also because of the fantastic tour guides. You could not meet friendlier, more accommodating individuals , they are true locals with a wealth of knowledge. Their passion for the area and for mussels made the day extra special

We had a most pleasant afternoon in the Greenshell Mussel capital. Leaving from Havelock on the Galileo, Ryan, the captain, gave us a most scenic tour in the Marlborough sounds. The water and mountain sides were pristine! We saw the greenshell mussel farms, then ate some steamed mussels with wine from the area. Ryan was very knowledgeable about the area , so we learned a lot while having a good time.

We had such a good time on this tour and the greenshell mussels served on board were outstanding! The Sauvignon Blanc from a local winery (Framingham) was also delicious!
