This was the welcome to New Zealand that we could only have imagined !
My wife and I flew into Wellington and caught the Interislander Ferry accross to Picton to begin our 3 week tour of the South Island.
The service, bar, and food on board was great. Historical information of the 'sounds' was located at various spots on board the ship - helpful in understanding why the locals of Marlborough hold this place so near and dear to their hearts.
Having dolphins swim alongside the ship through the cook straight was the icing on the cake for us - truly magical.

The only way to begin a trip to NZ's stunningly beautiful South Island - get out on deck if you're coming in by ferry from Wellington
