  • Full-Day Marlborough Catamaran Cruise with Wine Tour and Lunch

    Experience 'The Ultimate Marlborough Day Out', on this full day, small group tour.

    In the morning enjoy a scenic cruise through the Queen Charlotte Sound, aboard a catamaran and get to see the historic Ship Cove, where Captain Cook anchored way back in 1770. Returning to shore around 12.30pm, you will then be taken to a winery to have a single main course lunch with a glass of wine of your choice. 

    After lunch you will get to visit a couple more wineries with a chance to try some more of the wines produced here. This is while you are relaxing, savouring and enjoying this beautiful Marlborough region.

    We invite you to have 'The Ultimate Marlborough Day Out'. After picking you up from your accommodation, your morning is spent with a cruise on the Marlborough Sounds, then back on shore for a lunch stop at a winery and followed with a relaxing afternoon of wine tasting in the Marlborough wine region

    The cruise part of the day out, departs at 9:00am. You will cruise from Picton up through the Queen Charlotte Sound to historical Ship Cove. Along the way your skipper will provide a commentary on the surrounds, history and the wildlife be it birds, fish or mammals 

    There will be a chance to disembark, with a 20 minute stopover, at Ship Cove. This was named by Captain Cook, when in 1770 his ship, The Endeavour, anchored there to replenish supplies. It became a favourite anchorage for him and he returned there a further four times. 

    Take this opportunity to dabble in the creek where Cook made home brew for his crew and share the beach with the resident wildlife. 

    On returning to Picton at around 12:30 we will take you for a single course lunch, with a wine, of your choice, at one of Marlborough’s boutique wineries. While your main course is being prepared, the winery, will give the opportunity to try some of their wines.

     After your lunch you will get to visit a couple more wineries with a chance to try some more of the wines produced here, while your  relaxing, savouring and enjoying this beautiful Marlborough region.


    At the end of the tour we will return you to your accommodation and hope you have had a great day out in Marlborough.

      Cruise was fantastic, beautiful morning on the sound, but was disappointed in the wine tour, only 3 wineries in 4 hours, long way between selected wineries, we passed so many more. the guide was very friendly and knowledgable, but we had plenty of time to visit more wineries, if only we didn't have to drive 20 minutes to 1/2 hour between each.

      This could have been a nice tour but the Catamatan Cruise part of the trip is AWFUL!! It was nothing but a glorified water taxi that dropped off and picked up people!! Worst ever! Our boat also had a plumbing issue from one of the bathrooms so we were down about 20 minutes repairing the problem. DO NOT ride this !!! If you rode the ferry over you dont need to go out on this glorified water taxi!! You see the same thing on the ferry. Also our voucher stated it included lunch at our winery stop but we had to pay for it!! Overall this was pricey and mis-represented. Book a Marlborough wine tour only and book a smaller boat that takes you to Cook Island !!
      I have done Viator tours in the past and been very pleased but this one was terrible!!

        Calificación General: 4/10
