The only tourist activity in the country where you can pilot your own boat ! You wanna see something more remote parts of the Marlborough Sounds ? This trip is for you ! Magnificent scenery and piloting your own little boat is just so much fun as well ! You go on a nice short walk to have a close look at some of the oldest forest of the area, still totally untouched. Beautiful ! The guide is really nice as well and he takes photos of the all group during the all day and gives you the photo CD for free ! Would definitely recommend it to anyone willing to see more remote parts of this beautiful regions !

Very nice boat safari. You drive your own craft and a guide leads the group with his own craft. Very friendly!! The guide even took photos during the trip and after the trip he put the photos on CD and gave the CD for free.
