We had booked the Cougar Line for around Easter time for a birthday party and found that it ws great. We got to have the entire boat for 3 hours just cruising around the sounds and it was lovely! Everyone on board loved the views and the boat had everything you needed. The owner/manager was really lovely to deal with via email and face to face. We are planning to use the Cougar Line for my mothers birthday next and cannot wait! Best thing is you are able to BYO food and drinks (alcoholic or non alcoholic) BUT there is also a catering service available if you would like to just relax a little more and be catered to! All in all a great cruise!

After a recent trip to the Queen Charlotte Sound I would highly recommend booking your water transportation with Cougar. Great service, a convenient timetable and their service of daily hiking pack pick up and drop off is very reasonably priced and something you'd be crazy not to take advantage of.

A great trip with the Cougar Line - taking us to our destination at Ship Cove and looking after our luggage and chilly bins at each of the resorts we stayed at during our Queen Charlotte tramp - thanks team had lots of fun and appreciate the reliable service you gave us... recommended!

We had a truly wonderful 3hr trip along Queen Charlotte Sound, calling into many of the remote bays along the way to ferry people to their destinations or to deliver goods to the people that live in these exquisite bays.Many of these bays are only accessible by boat, unless you choose to walk the Qu Charlotte track. The skipper Fred and Tay [crew] were both a wealth of information in regard to the history of the area and way of life,inc bird life and dolphins. We were fortunate enough to experience the dolphins playing alongside the boat. Don't miss out on this trip.

My wife and I enjoyed a great trip up Queen Charlotte Sound visiting a number of stop offs en route to Bay of Many Coves for lunch. Fabulous scenery and saw a pod of dolphins as a bonus. Crew were friendly and helpful and nothing seemed a problem. Highly recommend.
