We did it to the snout and back to Picton, you're rewarded with awesome views of the sound. On a good day it's even better as the colours of greenery and blue water are just awesome.

I did this by car from Picton, and the 20 km drive is among the most scenic I have done, with some of the most winding road ever. There is no straight stretch in the entire 20 km drive. That can make you queasy, if you are prone to motion sickness. Take it easy, drink lots of water, avoid the sun, and stop as often as you can. You will rewarded with some of the best vistas. Reminded me of Alaska.

Amazing tour, our tour operater made this trip memorable, we will always choose this company as the staff are so well informed and very well trained in customer service. Dolphin Watch NatureTours took us to see the protected birds and we also saw Hector Dolphins. Highly recommend this tour.

Take it slow and enjoy the scenery. Plenty of places to stop. Momorangi Bay has a beaut little café/store and Havelock is a must for Mussel Boys.

We did the Beachcomber mail boat run and found it to be a lot of fun. The scenery was lovely and we especially enjoyed stopping at various jetties being met by resident dogs and at one jetty by Miss Piggy and her four piglets!
