Did the mail boat cruise with skipper Matt. The place is lovely and Matt was great with his humour and knowledge.

world class and unspoilt - this area at the northern tip of the south island offers so much. Sailing, walking, fishing or sightseeing. It's the gateway to the north island either by ferry or by plane.

Predictable weather. Good weather information. Beautiful scenary. Great fishing. Great Scuba diving and snorkling. Still chilly at night but we had glorious days and even when it rained still lots to do, walking, historical sites.

We loved our visit to the Marlborough Sounds. By inter-island ferry and then by water taxi. Sea and birdlife bountiful and close enough for wonderful photographs. Dolphins escorted us playfully, a basking sealion watched us go by ... We watched beautiful big fish in the clear waters near the jetty where we landed, and from our canoe when we paddled along a ciff face to see cormorants nesting. Wow! We have a multitude of photos to remember our wonderful escape!
