Went out with Fred yesterday. The day started out a little drizzly but it finally cleared up. The ride was pretty smooth and very comfortable. Fred was very knowledgeable and gave us a background of the islands as we passed them. Totally enjoyable day. Can't wait to come back again.

Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.
Perfect that they drive you to every bay on the Queen Charlotte Track. It is not much to do the whole track.
Great taxi/bag service along the Queen Charlotte track! Bags were dropped exactly where and when they were supposed to. Friendly staff.

Cruise from Picton to Ship Cove, then walk Queen Charlotte Track from Ship Cove to Furneaux Lodge where we were picked up by boat, great walk along the coast and the Sounds.
We recently cycled the Queen Charlotte Walkway and Cougar Line made our trip much easier and more enjoyable. The booking staff were friendly and informative, as were the staff on the boat. The early morning trip on Queen Charlotte Sound was picture perfect and the skipper first spotted and then stopped the boat so we could watch the dolphins - an amazing experience! The cycle trip was great with beautiful native bush, secluded bays and awesome views! The bag drop service was fantastic and meant an easier trip as only carrying a light day pack. Thanks Cougar Line - we love your part of the world and will be back
Cougar Lines took care of our transport into and out of Lochmara Bay. They were great; friendly, on-time, fast and shared some interesting commentary of interesting sights along the way.
